POKEMON LEGENDS ARCEUS Daybreak Update Is Out Now
Pokemon Legends: Arceus was released last month and met incredible sales, beating Call of Duty: Vanguard as the top-selling video game of the month. At today’s Pokémon Presents showcase, the Pokémon company revealed a new update for Arceus titled “Daybreak.”
The Daybreak update contains a new investigation that will assign players with getting to the bottom of a series of bizarre, Pokémon outbreaks. The short video tease showed outbreaks of some of the game’s rarest Pokémon, as well as outbreaks full of Alpha Pokémon. The mystery of what’s behind these unique outbreaks is one only the savior of Hisui can solve!
In addition to this new investigation, players can also challenge some of their favorite NPC characters to training battles back in Jubilife Village. A slate of new battles is being added, including battles with unique rules for more creative challenges.
To celebrate Pokémon Day, players can also redeem a special gift package that comes with 30 Ultra Balls, 30 Gigaton Balls, and 30 Jet Balls. To redeem this gift, players must use the code ARCEUSADVENTURE in the game’s Mystery Gift menu.
The video gave a brief glimpse at the player character facing off against both Dialga and Palkia in their evolved forms. This is the Eternal Battle Reverie, a post-game area where Arceus itself will challenge players to battle a series of very difficult opponents.
The Daybreak update for Pokémon Legends: Arceus is out now exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
