Snag A Pokemon Legends: Arceus Preorder For $45 For A Limited Time

The upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive releases on January 28.

14 Comments

Pokemon Legends: Arceus is just weeks away, and if you haven't preordered your copy just yet, you can save big by shopping at Daily Steals. If you enter promo code SBDSPKMN at checkout, Pokemon Legends: Arceus will drop to $45 with free shipping. The code is valid until February 14.

The only downside to this deal is that you aren't guaranteed release date delivery. If you consider that to be a dealbreaker, you'll want to order at a major retailer that offers delivery the same day the game launches. Amazon is selling Pokemon Legends Arceus preorders for $55 right now, so you can still save a bit of money.

Arceus takes place in Hisui, the previous name for the Sinnoh region, well before the mainline Pokemon series. Players will be tasked with roaming the world and catching Pokemon to compile the very first Pokedex. Though Arceus will retain the role-playing style of the mainline games, it'll switch things up by featuring real-time action gameplay.

While Arceus has an open-world vibe to it, it won't be fully open world. Instead, players will prep for missions in a village and then head off to complete the objective. That said, the levels do seem pretty big and certainly evoke The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in terms of style.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus launches exclusively on Nintendo Switch on January 28. It's the first major Nintendo Switch exclusive of 2022, but it's far from the only one on the horizon. Nintendo just announced that Kirby and the Forgotten Land--another game that has a Breath of the Wild vibe--lands on Switch on March 25.
