pokemon unite, the first Pokemon to appear in the MOBA universe, has finally received a release date.
This new game, developed by TiMi Studios, promises to be one of the biggest innovations in Pokemon history. It will be a 5 on 5 MOBA with similar gameplay to other popular games in the franchise like League of Legends. Players will travel to the Aeon region, where the games will be played in a format that includes resetting Pokemon to level 1 and evolving over time.
New MOBA based on Pokemon gets official release date for Nintendo Switch
Pokemon Unite has been scheduled for release in July for a while. But they have now decided on a specific date. Pokemon Unite will be officially released on June 21.
Players will also have a huge incentive to get into the game early. Any player who logs into the game before August 31 will get a free Zeraora add-on to the game List. As a Legendary Pokemon of the seventh generation, Zeraora is very likely to be among the most powerful characters in the game.
However, it is important to note that this release date only applies to players who were planning to play on the Nintendo Switch. Anyone looking to play Pokemon Unite on mobile will have to wait until September 1st to get access to the game.
Fortunately, once the game is released for both Switch and mobile, it will be via play between both units. It will also be cross-progression, meaning players can log into their account on their Switch or their phones and keep all the characters and items they unlocked on another console.
The game will have 20 playable Pokémon at release, which is up to 21 for everyone who gets Zeraora. The list is quite extensive, covering all 8 generations of Pokemon history. It also included fan favorites like Garchomp, Charizard, and of course, Pikachu.
TiMi Studios has already planned to add another Pokémon to the game, although it won’t be ready at launch. Blastoise and Gardevoir will be added to Pokemon Unite later.
