confirms my suspicion that Legends: Arceus was ostensibly a retail tech demo.

a late 2022 release is... uh... aggressive

They better go Arceus route rather than SwSh route even if whole having just one game seemed to be only for Arceus. Then again those keep selling so they keep making those like that.

I'll have to chime in with support for Arceus game design. I realize Pokemon's renewal is a generational thing, but I think I'd prefer to tap out if it's just Sword and Shield again with mostly unchanged game mechanics. I'm also more than a little wary of the texture quality I saw in the teaser. The first teaser should be a chance to show off your best stuff (like those sun rays halfway through). If I'm seeing muddy low-res textures on a wall, that's not a great sign. I get the sense that Game Freak is having trouble breaking out of multiple decades of habits and workflow designing for small DS screens.
Alas poor Photobucket. I knew him Horatio, a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy.

You know what? I watched the teaser again and my response has improved. If they maintain the Arceus mechanics, I might go for this one. The art direction does look very open and Arceus like. I guess I was turned off by what looked like something similar to Sword and Shield and... I kind of lost Steam on that game. It just tired me out.

It does look interesting but being fully open world not dictated by story does kill my interest. I don't really care about fully open world games and story is major reason why i play JRPGs. Shame really since Scarlet has Professor Sada.

I love that the legendaries are some kind of living motorcycle situation.  It's very odd.

Also, what's up with that Brütal Legend-looking speaker car and will we get to drive it?
