The evolution of Pokémon’s video games tends to approach slowly but safely to the already legendary: Breath of the Wild . After several more or less successful experiments such as Pokémon sword and shield, and then Pokémon Arceus, the Game Freak teams finally seem to offer us the wild _pokémon that many have been waiting for years.
- Similar exploration mechanics
- Choose the order to complete the objectives
- The great outstanding freedom
- Technically is not great
- A turning point in their respective sagas
In any case, if you wondered why Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 was postponed until next year, the progress of the scarlet and purple game should clarify things: throw two games on this scale one next to each other It would have been totally counterproductive for Nintendo; And Xenoblade Chronicles 3 probably became for this same reason.
So, to get heat to what is going to offer the new Pokémon game, we will compare5 points in common hallucinating ones that will have scarlet and purple with Zelda: Breath of the Wild *.
Similar exploration mechanics
It is quite easy to notice and we can easily imagine that Game Freak developers have taken advantage of Eiji Aonuma and his teams to design a pleasant open world exploration. The mount condenses all the actions of Link in Zelda Botw: his shape to climb any surface, the glider… and even the motorcycle added in the second DLC.
There is still an unknown, the resistance or resource consumed by the multifunction bicycle . With other very important systems to consider, such as capture and combat, perhaps developers eliminate any mechanics that restricts exploration.
Choose the order to complete the objectives
In scarlet and purple Pokémon, players must complete three main search threads, one of which includes victory in the 8 sands, a classic objective for the Pokémon saga. The great news is that it will be possible to make them in the order you want , as well as Botw’s great dungeons, which went beyond killing Ganon as soon as the tutorial ended.
Something excellent for freedom of action, but we hope that the challenge adapts in some way as flagships are collected. If it is too easy in the vast majority of cases, this is a component that could bother some players if it is wrong.
The great outstanding freedom
Scarlet and purple also emphasizes total freedom of action, with its first truly open world, to be explored in the way you want, in the order you want . That is what is really going to do much to this license created more than a quarter of a century ago.
We can see that some elements of the world are also similar to Link’s latest adventures, such as the classic towers established by Ubisoft games that allow to have an excellent overview of the surroundings . However, it is impossible to know at the moment if its summit will require an address to achieve it.
Technically is not great
As usual, we will begin remembering that the people of the Game Freak study are machines that launch role-playing games at a dizzying pace . Under these conditions, it is difficult to compare it with a Monster Hunter Rise or the recent Xenoblade 3 that benefited from a much more generous development time.
So the truth is that the game is technically limited (being educated), it is shown in the trailer. But on the other hand, a true visual identity emerges from the environments that can be seen in the trailer. This world looks lovely and makes you want to explore, while only a few months ago, certain arceus areas made you want to cry blood .
A turning point in their respective sagas
As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, Game Freak has been playing with the massive open world for some time, leaving a lot of space for the family’s freedom of action . Pokémon sword and shield began to open the world and incorporated multiplayer incursions. As for Arceus, he freed himself from many rules anchored in the history of the series for decades to breathe a breath of fresh air that had been needed for some time.
So when scarlet and purple Pokémon see the light in November, no one will be surprised: it will simply be the sum of the advances of recent years, a form of realization and a marker for the coming generations.
