It’s been almost a full month since Pokémon Legends: Arceus launched, and its bold retelling of the traditional Pokémon formula has made a profound impact among fans and series newcomers alike. Critics were also impressed with the game, and that’s certainly evident in the new accolades trailer Nintendo has released.

The video is crammed full of high review scores and quotes brimming with acclaim for the title. You’ll also catch plenty of glimpses of gameplay and the various locales players can traverse through.



The game performed well commercially as well as critically, shifting 6.5 million copies worldwide within its first week on sale. It became the fourth-biggest launch in the series’ history in the UK, and it was the second-largest launch for a Nintendo Switch game ever in Japan.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is available now, exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
