Pokemon Legends: Arceus For many fans, it seemed like an open world of Pokémon they had wanted for a long time. compare to Zelda: Breath of the Wild came. But now disappointment follows: according to Nintendo, the new RPG for the Switch doesn’t even have an open game world. Now frustrated fans are venting their anger and thinking that the graphics are not good enough for a game with separate zones. Learn more about the topic here.
There is no open world
All about this: Trailers for the new RPG Pokémon Legends: Arceus have released a lot of open-world flair with their focus on exploring the game’s vast world. We also reported on this ingredient. But now it turns out: it was a misunderstanding and a role-playing game that does not have a seamlessly connected game world that can be freely explored.
In a statement to Kotaku Nintendo is now clearing the confusion surrounding the concept of an RPG: we can expect gameplay reminiscent of Monster Hunter. Jubeldorf will serve as the hub. There we will prepare our research missions and depart to different regions. It can then be freely explored.

Fans are upset
Most fans do not take this vision very well. After all, many were looking forward to the expected combination: a Pokémon RPG set in an open and freely explorable world. Some users express their opinion reddit But also tolerant, like Byakuya_Benil:
I’m pretty sure these are all free roaming areas. Not a real 100% open world, but instead many open domains, probably to avoid performance and introduce problems and things like that.
Basically Jfray81 would agree, but thinks the RPG doesn’t do enough for a title that doesn’t have a seamlessly connected world:
That’s fine, but why do regions seem so empty in a restricted world?
Mustachey Yeah takes it one step further and notes:
This is what I noticed. If this game didn’t have an open world, why would we see such awesome background views?
C0de_g0rilla goes one step further and claims:
Google Maps looks better.
The latest statement in particular shows how disappointed some fans are. On the one hand, because they wanted to explore an open world, on the other hand, because they were expecting more from a game with closed areas. On January 28, Pokémon Legends Arceus comes to the Nintendo Switch and we can see for ourselves what the regions will eventually look like.
