Updated January 24, 2022: A few days before the game’s release, Nintendo had a hard time fighting leaks and spoilers, meanwhile Pokemon Legends Arsius’ playthroughs were streamed on Twitch or uploaded on YouTube.
These videos are based on Will be said Of the ROM versions that run on the emulator, some have already received copies of the game after uploading the game files to the Internet.
The videos show players who are well advanced in the game, while others focus on the first part of the game. And new stuff is constantly appearing on sites like Reddit and Twitter.
So the following still applies: If you want to start the game without much prior knowledge, be careful for the next few days.
Original announcement from January 19, 2022: More than a week after its release, Nintendo has been battling leaks and spoilers for the upcoming Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
The company has been making efforts to remove related content from various sites, however new ones are emerging.
Spoiler risk, but not here
So if you want to get into the game without much prior knowledge, be very careful in the coming days. This is especially true for social media sites like Twitter and Reddit.
In the last 24 hours many photos of people holding a retail version of the game have surfaced on social media.
At the same time, the first screen shots and gameplay scenes of the game began to spread. These, among other things, reveal more about the story, structure, work structure and Pokédex.
Copies are also sold in advance on eBay. According to our UK Eurogamer colleagues, 15 buyers each pay $ 75 for an overnight copy from a seller in New Jersey.
Nintendo doesn’t like it
So far, all of the leaks seem to have come from business versions that were initially in circulation, and should definitely be delivered in advance of starting next week. There is currently no evidence of material leakage from the digital copies sent to the testers – this happened in the past.
Both Nintendo and The Pokémon Company have strict policies against leaks, but in the past it has not been a barrier to releasing every Pokமொmon game.
It was expensive last year for those who leaked from the Pokemon Shield and the Pokemon Sword. They were fined $ 150,000 each for booking items from a strategic guide.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus will be released on January 28, 2022 for the Nintendo Switch.
