Despite Pokémon Legends: Arceus arguably being one of the most intriguing releases the Pokémon series has received in some time, we haven’t heard all that much about it since its initial reveal back in February. A release date was given a little later in May, but we haven’t heard a peep since then.
Thankfully, for anyone cautiously optimistic that the game could be a truly special step forward for the series given the time and creativity it deserves, it seems that we won’t have to wait too much longer to learn more. GamesBeat recently sat down for a chat with JC Smith, The Pokémon Company International’s senior director of consumer marketing, and the topic of Arceus’ impending release was briefly mentioned:
GamesBeat: We also have Pokémon Legends: Arceus coming out next year. When do you think we’ll hear more about that?
Smith: That one, we have a robust rollout, but not a lot that I can share at this time. But the team has a lot of great things to share, and you’ll be hearing from us soon.
“Soon” sounds good to us, and with Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl also only 100 days away from launch as of today, it wouldn’t be all that surprising to see a Pokémon Presents show discussing all of these games in the near future. We’ll have to wait and see on that one.
