Hardcore Gamer: In quite a surprising announcement during the Pokémon presentation, we got confirmation of a Diamond and Pearl remake. But that’s not all taking place in the Sinnoh region. Pokémon Legends Arceus, a brand new title was revealed.
I wonder if they borrowed the BOTW engine for this. Looks very similar.
I feel like Breath of The Wild looks way better graphically...
fari enough, it just has that feel. Maybe it's just Sword / Shield.
This looks extremely ROUGH, like it's still in early EARLY alpha or pre-production.
This looks like SH!T... This is seriously Nintendo's best representation of this game??! WTF?!
Of course it does. Breath of the wild doesn’t have all the wildlife this pokemon game does. So it can’t keep the same visual fidelity as botw.
The BotW engine is actually the Xenoblade Chronicles X engine.
Hopefully Turn based battles is gone.Id like them to experiment with it on this one
From another snippet of gameplay it still appeared to be turn based,
Could be intentional misdirection though. Remember when SwSh's first trailer made it appear like wild grass encounters would be returning, but instead pokemon were in the OW? Plus they explicitly stated "action rpg".
No one wants live action pokemon battles. There’s more than enough games with that type of fighting. Considering that’s how final fantasy changed too.
This looks rough
Yeap. If you told me this was a fan project on Unity I would totally believe you. Even the trailer composition look very amateur.
Music and sound effects, too. Bizarre.
I like the concept, and I like the fact it's one game but even then it's like Sword and Shield, I don't see as much improvement. Hopefully it's Beta footage because I can't see a reason why it would look like that, baron looking and a little lifeless.
Good news is we are at least a year away from release. Plenty of time to adjust and build.
...this is the EXACT same excuse people used for Sword and Shield It didn't improve much, what we saw looks wise, frame rate, textures, animations, the way they world plays and the life that fills the scenery in those early trailers were basically what we got.
@Foxtrot - alright dude, be that guy.
What guy? A realist, a guy who takes and analyses a studios/companies past missteps to give a rough realistic estimate of what is most likely going to happen? Sure...that's me. Rather be a realist than a blind drone who will take the bare minimum effort, even if I do always come off cynical.
@Foxtrot - why don't we just wait until the game releases? Why is it automatically doom and gloom from you? You saw a 15 second trailer with very little in the ways of combat or anything. And automatically "it's garbage".
i agree. it didnt wow me away, i dont know why that is tbh. lack of talent or lack of experience . D and P .. the chibi overworld decision is odd too lol
It’s sad because why not just work together with someone else to bring full on great looking D&P remakes instead of churning out so many things
Bruh its Gamefreak, they're are still using their awfully archaic ass engine, it'll look like this as the final product minus the frame-rate dips

Like the concept, but I’ve been burned too many times recently with Pokémon games to get my hopes up. Wouldn’t be surprised if this is another half assed cash grab
The moment I realized it took place in almost feudal Japan, I got the same feeling that its going to half assed. I feel it's an excuse to have no cities or population. Just nothing but open space with Pokémon scattered around. They stated you have that central town. While that doesn't mean there won't be more, I just worried they took what everyone has asked for forever and done the absolute minimum to accomplish.
Hello 100m Switch sales without a price drop.
sorry, with the lite, the Switch actually already had a huge price drop. don't even try to deny this, because everybody is lumping both sales together despite the Lite being a 100% handheld.
People need glasses if that looks anything like BoTW to you. It's just the wild area but bigger and rougher looking just as empty and lifeless. And what in the world are the remakes? Why do they look so basic? I'm done, no more Pokemon
it's GameFreak, what do you expect? they are still stuck somewhere between the PS2 and PS3 transition period technology-wise and I'm being generous. and what do you expect from NIntendo fanboys? this will be treated like the second coming no matter how outdated the game is compared to other games.
That framerate was rough
The artstyle looks rough as well... Cartoony character models in a semi-realistic environment. It just looks off.
Could this be the Pokemon game we've been asking for?!
The game is exactly the direction that Pokemon fans have wanted for years and people on N4G are complaining. Surprise. If this was a Sony first party title, bet it would be getting worshipped here. It definitely had some technical limitations and issues, but saying it looks like the wild area? Clearly you never played SWSH because it looks significantly better than the wild area. It's a step in the right direction.
"If this was a Sony first party title, bet it would be getting worshipped here." if it was a Sony's game, you can bet on your life that everybody will troll them to death for that showing! what I'm saying is, if it was a Sony's game, it will not looks like it was made for the PS2 like this one!
Who worship garbage like this? Gamesfreak getting free pass from Nintendo fans as always.
C'mon, dude. I criticize people here quite frequently for not being able to handle criticism of Days Gone, so I'm the best person to tell you that you're projecting. The sales will prove that only Nintendo fans would "worship" and buy a game that looks worse than many launch PS3 games in droves. That's not an insult, it's just a fact. Your strawman doesn't make any sense and you can't back it with any examples. Pokemon-style games with a far better presentation (Ni No Kuni) came out around 10 years ago on the PS3 (2 generations ago).
^ This. Also this is not the game everyone had been hoping for. This is a game with one town with mostly only focus on catching pokemon. The guy you control even loses HP if he does ‘t catch Pokemon. This is a shallow spontanious response to the backlash of GO and Sword/Shield. Hopefully this is the first step to a mainline Pokemon game in third person, but this is not it.
Realm of the unknown is to be filled with wonder and excitement, this brought boredom and despair. Few trees here & a couple of rocks there, jobs were done. Bench the project until 2024+ with better hardware.
Gameplay is pre-alpha footage?
While it does look rough, I do appreciate that they actually put what the game would look like on current hardware unlike other devs. They could have easily just shown us footage of it running on a pc with better visuals. I'm not defending them though, i hope it's still early development and we some better optimization in the future. They're on the right track though, that's for sure, at least with this game. I wont even bother with those remakes, they look absolutely awful. I'm tired of giving my money to Gamefreak for half-assed work. I'm also still hoping for a switch upgrade.
Color me intrigued. An open world Pokemon?! Now we're talking.
This is awesome to me. Idc.
