A small wave of new trailers have appeared for Nexomon: Extinction today, the Pokémon-like monster-catching game that's headed for Switch. Oh, and speaking of heading for Switch, we now have a confirmed release date, too.

The game will be launching on 28th August, so we won't have long to wait to check it out and see how it performs. The team behind the game say that monster-catching fans "can look forward to a return to the roots of the genre", which should sound good to anyone who's fallen out of love with Pokémon's direction over recent years.

Anyway, let's get on to those new trailers. The first one talks about the different ways that you can catch a Nexomon for yourself.

Catching Nexomon

With a minigame, various types of food, traps and more, there are many ways to improve your chances of capturing a monster in Nexomon: Extinction! Study which treats the Nexomon you are hunting likes to eat, which trap is most effective against their elemental type and practice the minigame to become a master tamer!

Exploring the World

In Nexomon: Extinction, you'll become a member of Tamer's Guild and join the fight against the mighty Tyrant Nexomon who are devastating the world. But the world of Nexomon is also home to plenty of funny, mysterious and thrilling side-quests, gathering opportunities, stories to tell and much more!

Eccentric Characters

Nexomon: Extinction is a game that doesn't take itself too seriously - at least not all the time! You'll encounter some genuinely hilarious situations and a refreshingly honest sense of humour throughout your journey. If you enjoy sarcasm and characters breaking the fourth wall, this is the perfect monster catching game for you!
