Nintendo has dropped a new trailer for upcoming Pokémon prequel adventure Pokémon Legends: Arceus ahead of next month’s launch.
This new video introduces us to two of the game’s clans that reside in the game’s Hisui region with some familiar names. First off, the Diamond Clan are a group who speak of living in the moment. Their opposing clan are the Pearl clan, who are more about sharing the land.
These two clans will be a key part of Pokémon Legends: Arceus’ story, and you’ll meet many of their most notable members. They include Adaman, who leads the Diamond Clan who has his Leafeon by his side. His counterpart in the Pearl Clan is Irdia, who prefers to run with her Glaceon. We also get a brief glimpse of a group of merchants known as the Ginkgo Guild. They’re not native to Hisui, but they travel around the land and will have important items to sell on your journey.
Of course, being a prequel story to Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, there’s a few more ties to the recent games. Players with a save file from either will be able to take on a special research quest. Upon completion of this quest, they’ll get an encounter with mythical Pokémon Darkrai.
You can check out the new trailer for yourself down below. Pokémon Legends: Arceus arrives on the Nintendo Switch on January 28, 2022.
