Nintendo of America has confirmed that Pokémon Legends: Arceus has sold more than 6.5 million copies worldwide in less than a week since the Nintendo Switch exclusive game launched.
“Thank you to the more than 6.5 million explorers worldwide who have already embarked on an exciting new adventure in Pokémon Legends: Arceus,” the company revealed on Twitter. “We hope you’re loading up on more potato mochi before your next research mission!”
The developer has looked to “deliver an experience infused with new action and RPG elements that go beyond the framework established thus far, while honouring the core gameplay of past Pokémon titles.”
As part of the Galaxy Expedition Team, you will set out on an adventure through the Hisui region – the land that eventually came to be known as the Sinnoh region. With the bustling Jubilife Village serving as your base of operations, you will leave the settlement to complete assignments and requests that will challenge you to study areas of the Hisui region.
Your first stop will be one of the base camps that will serve as an outpost for your work, and a place where you can rest during an excursion to let your Pokémon recover their health or craft items using the base camp’s workbench.
As you work towards completing the Hisui region’s first Pokédex, your rank as a member of the Galaxy Team will increase and you will have the chance to meet interesting characters and unique Pokémon that call the region home.
