‘Pokémon Legends: Z-A’ Set for 2025 Release


Happy Pokémon Day, trainers! Exciting news is afoot, as a new game was announced during this morning’s Pokémon Presents livestream — Pokémon Legends: ZA.

A new adventure awaits within Lumiose City, where an urban redevelopment plan is underway to shape the city into a place that belongs to both people and Pokémon.

Though we haven’t seen it with more recent games in the franchise, it used to be typical for a third, more refined game to come out in the years following the dual release from each generation (Yellow, Crystal, Emerald, etc.). Following the 2013 release of the sixth generation titles, X and Y, fans have long-since speculated if Z would ever see the light of day. Now, it appears that trainers will finally have a chance to return to the Kalos region and Lumiose City.

While no substantial information has been revealed about the upcoming game beyond the teaser trailer and a brief synopsis, we can only assume that its gameplay mechanics will hopefully be similar to Pokémon Legends: Arceus. The 2022 release was a critically acclaimed hit for the franchise, drawing in fans new and old with an exciting new way to experience the world of Pokémon.

Pokémon Legends: Z-A is set for a worldwide release on Nintendo Switch in 2025.

If she's not writing or out and about with her camera, she's probably watching anime, nerding out over Star Wars, reading manga, and definitely forgetting to water her plants. And waiting for the Genshin loading screen to pop up. Contact: lindsey@nerdsandbeyond.com
