If you're looking forward to Pokémon Legends: Arceus and want to avoid any spoilers, you might want to stay away from social media for the next week.
It appears some trainers may have already got their hands on the anticipated release - with screenshots and information about the new title now emerging via social media platforms like Twitter.
While we won't go into specific details or share the sources of this information (for now), it seems details about the game's story and protagonist have been revealed.
According to one of the sources, certain distributors have already shipped out copies as well - so there could be some early deliveries next week. Listings have appeared on sites like eBay, too.
Again, all we can advise is you stay off social media if you don't want to find out, and be mindful of other players who may also want to go into the new entry spoiler-free.
If we hear any other developments, we'll let you know.
I swear if I get this spoiled I will lose faith in humanity :I
WHY DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING
Oh yeah I saw something on Reddit about this, apparently someone got a physical copy early. People thought it was fake, but apparently it had an unused serial number on the cartridge so people think it’s legit.
Then again it is Reddit so you can’t be too sure lol
Time to keep an eye out for spoilers, so I can see if the game is truly worth the hype or not.
I think I will be able to avoid spoilers just fine, and if I do its because I was looking a little to deep for some info.
@Fugman Well your profile pic got's me convinced.
@Pokester99 Rather not have the game leak entirely before release, since it'll spoil everything, and given how hard it is to get around pokemon spoilers, it'll make the last remaining days a pain.
@PARK1755 zit's 100% legit. The only thing is that the leaker went in the dark.
the leakers can say if it's any good so that I can buy it
@Fugman I’m… not really sure what there is to be spoiled about? It’s Pokémon, it’s hardly Game of Thrones 😂
@nessisonett I know, but I hate spoilers so much.
@VoidofLight hm interesting, thanks for letting me know!
I'm fairly certain nothing in the game will appease you no matter what, given your commentary on every single Pokemon-related article.
WHY DOES THIS KEEP HAPPENING!?!?!
Eh, whatever...at least I'll know for sure if I should bother or not, because so far it isn't doing it for me...looks too boring.
@nessisonett Halfway thru the game Pokemon rebel and start capturing people in Peepballs. 😉
Honestly...no longer surprising. This happens way too often that I can imagine the same will happen with Breath of the Wild 2.
Didn’t the people that leaked sword and shield get hit with a massive lawsuit and lost? Yeah I’d think twice about leaking pokemon games
@Moonlessky To be fair, the people who did that were under an NDA, given they were supposed to review the game, and had a review copy. The person who first leaked Legends was under no such contract.
@nessisonett Let's be honest—if we spied a Starbucks cup in Hisui, we'd all be amused.
This is one game I want a few spoilers for. We catch Pokemon in every other game, but we're also trying to win gym badges, fight the enemy team, and beat the Elite Four. The overall story in Legends Arceus seems to have been kept hidden from us.
@mjhopkins81 Not sure you could make out the Starbucks logo in that resolution 😉
This kind of thing can only encourage game developers to go further with digital.
Please Nintendolife, no leaks this time. I know you love making articles. But, please don't.
Some spoilers are fine. Just as long as they don't show up unless we click on the article with the knowledge that there will be spoilers.
It doesn't take a fortune teller or a genius to figure out that it's just going to be another lazy, bland Pokemon game that casuals will mindlessly eat up. Some OG fans will (justifiably) criticize this game online and nothing will change. It'll just keep going on in an endless, downhill cycle.
You write this article warning about spoilers as if the next Avengers movie leaked or something. Give me a break lol.
Gee, it's almost like this has happened before. Multiple times.
@NinjaGuy69 @nessisonett Sorry but maybe some people do care about Pokemon spoiler, even if it looks like you do not.
Removed - trolling
@NinjaGuy69 You should drop the passive aggression before you're swiftly banned. Telling somebody to grow up and judge their taste in games for no reason other than replying to your admittedly dumb comment just shows you in a bad light.
@Varkster You can mind your own business and I'll mind mine.
honestly, the only surprising thing about this is that it took this long for it to happen.
well, in any case, the people who have been spoiled can stop gripping about there being a smart phone in ancient sinnoh now.
Yeah I'm still keeping my hopes up for this one, even though a lot of the early footage looked "barren" like you said.
Also really appreciate your profile pic, seeing that flag boosted my day for sure <3
Welp. See ya.
This game actually needs some leaks. I've seen some, and it just made me more excited for the game.
I saw this game available since from like 5 days ago on mercado libre (latin America's Amazon) so if anybody's interested, you should be heading there
Its pretty much expected that these game’s roms get leaked a week or two before relese
Has anyone leaked if it’s any good or not though?
@PARK1755 that sounds super cereal
I don't need spoilers to know it's gonna be a rushed game with mediocre gameplay and graphics that everyone will buy.
Please no articles covering what is in the game until it releases please. Unless you can get a copy and I would love to read your review.
I have already preordered the pokemon game that I need to know more about because they haven't told me anything, and I look forward to running around those empty landscapes which look like were made for the N64 as soon as it arrives.
Oh no, not the deep story of bad guys doing bad things and mystical pokemon being mysterious!
Oh no the biggest leake of all, is that you can catch pokemon!
I usually hate leaks and spoilers, but honestly I'm still on the fence on Legends Arceus because of so little we know about the actual game.
Leaks about Sw/Sh helped me make the choice before, I'm hoping these will help me now
I’m still waiting for reviews instead of waiting for leaks, I think leaking the game in general is somewhat scummy-there are certain things a developer wants to keep secret and not spoil the player on as they play the game-but I’m not going to blindly jump in with my money, especially since I’ve got a mile-long backlog from Christmas. I’m probably going to wait a few months until I jump in, so that I can fairly judge it, and obviously if reviews say it’s terrible then I won’t buy it.
@PARK1755 I don't know if you said it as a joke or genuinely don't know this, but just in case, the ID in the product is called the serial number, not cereal number. Have a nice day!
@moodycat I'm just about to buy Pokémon Sword I think for me and my son to play through... It's got an 80 Metacritic, 5/5 average on Amazon from user reviews and looks pretty good to me!
What's wrong with the quality of that game?
That might be a good thing. When will we get the soundtrack?
I ore-ordered very early...and not feeling all that confident either.
I agree some details and things could help sales and potentially avoid a huge backlash if this game is half-baked. If the game is good, shout it from the rooftops.
@Skunkfish if you are playing through it with your son, then it would probably be fine. The reason why pokemon Sword/Shield is controversial is mainly because of a decision to cut certain pokemon from the game because of the developers wanting more time to work on "new" animations which were actually not new at all.
@inenai LOL OOPS, sorry I was kinda in a rush, I had to get to work when typing this and I guess I spelt it wrong, my bad!
@NinjaGuy69 well i mean you can't say Nott everything (so far) about Arceus is the same, it seems the way you catch Pokemon will be different,
@Skunkfish Sword and shield are good fun actually, me and my family had a good time with them. If you’re fine with not the best presentation in the world and not having the full Dex, they’re an easy recommendation. Hope that helps!
@moodycat Why do I get this sneaking suspicion I know which side of the fence you're gonna fall on.
@Skunkfish The game is fine. Keep in mind that many "Pokemon fans" online aren't actually fans and just want to take every opportunity to hate on every game that has come out post-Gen V.
Spoilers one thing but not able to play is different. Sure spoilers are the worst but everyone plays how they play. I am still getting the game to give my first own experience of Open Word Pokémon game. Also one has to remember PreOrder Bonus are one time and won't be after so this is one reason I will get Day One.
And in other news water is wet, but seriously you always get some retailers breaking release dates, as stock always arrives early for some, no big deal, just stat away from spoilers if you are getting the game, wish my local stores would let me have a copy now, but never have much luck with this sort of thing.
It is fascinating how such a strickt Company as Nintendo got so many leaked Games.
Isn't leaking just a way of getting a sense of the public opinion these days? I mean there's leaks everywhere, I have a firm belief that a lot of them are intentional.
@DJP- there probably isn't any.
@SwitchForce You are exactly the kind of people they exploit...
@msvt You can still cancel it right?
@Skunkfish I suggest looking at the metacritic user score...
yes! I am borderline. I could always ebay it too I want it to be great and probably going to to stick to it though. I did really like some of the recent Pokemon games, in fact UltraSun is my favorite and has 575 hours of playtime.
Just so sick of wasting money on unfinished product so if I have time today, I will check reddit for some of the leaks before deciding.
@EriXz You sure about it? Mercado libre is more like an Ebay if anything, not as safe as Amazon, so could it be real? I'm not saying it couldn't be, because México always gets leaks like the time they got early copies of Smash Ultimate
@Gigagash You are exactly the kind of people they exploit...
Based on stupidity response is the biggest reason we have NintenDoomed fandom Trolling here.
@SwitchForce Could you explain this again? I don't get what you mean.
Guess some people don't know what playing Open World games are like and don't want to open their closed mindsets. AKA Trolls. Too bad the rest of us will move on and you can sit in your Parent's basement twitting all day long without a life.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus - 2 hours of gameplay
Dead Link now....
I like the fact your shoes comes off when you step on the into the house itself. Just from the gameplay can't wait to try it out now.
Seems like the posting of the same video I saw came back...???? Go figure...
@Edwirichuu yes, im sure and no, Mercado libre has shifted its business to a more Amazon kinda thing
I like it so far, not gonna give anything major away but it's capture mechanics are a cross between let's go let's go and traditional style, and there's a crafting system so that you can make your own poke balls potions etc. I figured I'd grab it early on my hacked Switch as I pre-purchased already.
It's monster hunter with a Pokemon skin. That sounds awesome, but somehow I'm sure gamefreak made it suck.
I am now downloading that video...
