How to pre-order Pokemon Legends Arceus

Pokemon Legends Arceus pre-orders are now live at Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop for $60. The new Pokemon Legends Arceus game is launching for Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite on January 28, 2022.

Official Pokemon social media channels broke the big news today, seemingly out of the blue. Nintendo and The Pokemon Company first unveiled Legends Arceus back in February, along with its line-up of starters. The Legends Arceus starter Pokemon are a mix of some previous franchise favorites.

Alongside the Pokemon Legends Arceus pre-order and release date news, upcoming Nintendo Switch titles Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl also got the same treatment. Check out when the pair of Gen IV Pokemon remasters are due out, along with where to pre-purchase them.

Of course, there’s still a bit of a wait before Pokemon Legends Arceus drops early next year. This prequel takes place in the Sinnoh region, to which the Diamond and Pearl remakes will serve as a reintroduction. More specifically, however, it’s the “Sinnoh region of old” and will offer players an unprecedented glimpse into the past. Pokemon history buffs definitely won’t want to miss it!

Pokemon Nintendo Switch games just keep coming, as fans recently received the long-awaited New Pokemon Snap. This sequel to an N64 classic is super chill, but is that enough to make it a worthwhile purchase? Find out in the GameRevolution review.
