Pokémon lovers, prepare yourselves for a completely new challenge. A team-based, real-time strategy game called ‘Pokémon Unite’ is being launched by the Pokemon group.
The official Pokémon YouTube network reveals that the first team-based Pokémon battle game is being produced in collaboration with TiMi Studios. Pokémon Unite is being launched for the Nintendo switch and smartphones and will allow cross-play between the two platforms. For cross-platform supporters, this is very big news because any company willing to share online games between competitors is always a piece of good news for game lovers.
Tsunekazu Ishihara, President, and CEO of Pokémon Business presented a new video to clarify what we should expect from the new game. According to him, “It’s free to play cooperative Pokemon game with a lot of depth that anyone can pick up and play.” The game is more like MOBA (Multiplayer online battle arena), specifically like League of Legends, with a team of 5 players fighting with other team of 5 players and increasing their levels during the battle by achieving objectives.
What this game is all about?
Pokémon Unite’s greatest feature is its team fights in real-time with two teams. Every team has five goals to pick Pokémon and win points. Caught Pokémon will overtake other Pokémon and learn how to level out attacks. Every Pokémon has a unique move, which players can activate after acquiring a certain level. The team with the most scores throughout the time wins. Interestingly, Pokémon wants this new game to go along the esports path. Maximum 10 players can participate in this game where they will be further divided into 5-on-5 real-time battles. This game will also include some in-app purchases.
Is Pokémon Unite Free to Play?
Pokémon Unite is a free start-up game for Nintendo Switch, Android smartphones, and iOS, and a multiplayer battle can be played on any type of device.
The announcement video of Pokémon Unite is available on the official YouTube channel of Pokémon. It’s an 11-minute teaser; the whole video is translated in English, as it is presented by the CEO of Pokemon Group Tsunekazu Ishihara. After the release of the Unite Game trailer, every game lover is waiting eagerly for the launch of the game. But the company has not disclosed the release date yet. We can assume that the Pokemon Company will have more to say about Pokémon Unite in the coming months. Stay tuned with us to get some latest updates about the release date of Pokémon Unite.
