What has the Nintendo Switch been missing since its launch? A Pokemon game. My son has a Nintendo Switch and a proper Pokemon game is the one thing he keeps asking me for and when one will come out. Well, his wait is officially over as Nintendo today released, Pokemon Quest. While not quite the Pokemon game most fans want, it’s still something to hold us over until a real one comes out.
Pokemon Quest is a free-to-play game features creatures from the series’ Kanto region and graphically looks more like Minecraft than any previous Pokemon game.
Set off for adventure in the Pokémon™ Quest game. Venture out with your Pokémon buddies on expeditions across Tumblecube Island in search of loot in this free-to-start action-adventure for the Nintendo Switch™ system. Modify your Pokémon buddies with discovered Power Stones to make your ultimate expedition team.
With a cube-shaped art style, Pokémon™ Quest is unlike any Pokémon game you’ve seen before. The simple gameplay makes it easy to hop into expeditions and start exploring Tumblecube Island with the help of your Pokémon buddies. Afterwards, head back to your base camp where you can use the loot you found during your adventure to befriend more Pokémon. Attract various Kanto Region Pokémon to your base camp by cooking up dishes made with collected ingredients! You can even decorate your base camp with fun items that provide helpful bonuses that make your expeditions more beneficial.
While Pokemon Quest is free-to-play, there are in-game purchases so at least be aware of that.
