I was beyond excited for Pokémon Legends: Arceus and I’ve got the tattoo to prove it. Helmed by Game Freak, the franchise’s foray into open-world action RPG territory might be its most ambitious title in years—possibly decades. For a limited time, it’s also $10 off at Walmart and GameStop, or $55 on Amazon. Unlike the previous mainline games in the series, you can explore its Hisui region in a full 3D enviornment, uninterrupted by random, tedious wild Pokémon encounters. Instead, you can capture Pokémon from the overworld using items you craft yourself. Or engage in battles with revamped mechanics to weaken the ‘mon first. The choice is yours in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
