Pokemon Legends Open WorldSource: The Pokemon Company

One of the biggest announcements during the Feb. 26 Pokémon showcase was Pokémon Legends: Arceus. This brand-new adventure is unlike any Pokémon game before, taking place a long time ago in the Sinnoh region. Players will be crafting the first Pokédex ever for the region while running, rolling, leaping, and exploring alongside familiar Pokémon.

If this incredibly different style of game sounds like something you're interested in, you'll be happy to know it's available for preorder right now. Here's how to preorder Pokémon Legends: Arceus for the Nintendo Switch. We'll be sure to expand this guide as more retailers or editions of the game show up in the months ahead.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus

An open world adventure

If you've ever dreamed of a giant world to explore alongside Pokémon, then Pokémon Legends: Arceus is going to be the game for you.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is currently set to release for the Nintendo Switch at some point in early 2022, though this could shift, given the state of the world and game development being affected by the ongoing global pandemic. When it is available, it could end up being one of the best Nintendo Switch games on the platform, depending on just what Game Freak brings to the table in this wild departure.
