Ahead of the official release of Pokémon Legends: Arceus at the end of the month (January 28), earlier this week Nintendo shared a new trailer revealing a few more details about the game.
The minute-long trailer shows off a brief overview of the game, from Pokémon roaming free and engaging in battles to collecting materials needed to craft essential items like Pokéballs.

The Pokémon Company has kept a lot of the details about Pokémon Arceus under wraps but last year, it did confirm that the game would not be a fully open-world experience.
In other news, a series of job listings from Bithell Games hint at the studio’s next title, with founder Mike Bithell describing it as “something ambitious”.

The company is currently recruiting 9 new members of staff, with more openings to follow.
