A new patch for Pokémon Legends: Arceus went live on Feb. 11 and is now available for players to download. Pokémon Legends: Arceus was released on Jan. 28 on the Nintendo Switch, bringing Pokémon fans a new experience.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is the first action role-playing game created by GameFreak which has excited many old and new Pokémon fans. Players are able to catch wild Pokémon, explore the Hisui region and encounter every Pokémon in order to create the first Pokédex.

Rather than fighting gym leaders and earning gym badges, Pokémon Legends: Arceus requires players to encounter human wardens who protect the legendary Pokémon of the region. By doing this, players will be able to encounter legendary Pokémon, as well as the god-Pokémon, Arceus.
