Pokemon Legends: Arceus update out now (version 1.0.1), patch notes
Pokemon Legends: Arceus has received its first update, bringing the game to version 1.0.1. Nintendo has also shared the patch notes – though they’re very brief.
As noted by the Big N, the update involves the following: “Fixed some problems for a better gaming experience.” We unfortunately don’t have further details beyond this. It’s currently unclear which specific issues have been addressed, but you should be getting a better experience in the end.
Fans are likely aware that Pokemon Legends: Arceus technically isn’t available just yet, but if you’ve pre-loaded the game, you should see that the 1.0.1 update will eventually be downloaded to your system. You’ll be all ready to go for launch later this week.
Here’s a bit of information about Pokemon Legends: Arceus:
Get ready for a new kind of grand, Pokémon adventure in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, a brand-new game from Game Freak that blends action and exploration with the RPG roots of the Pokémon series. Embark on survey missions in the ancient Hisui region. Explore natural expanses to catch wild Pokémon by learning their behavior, sneaking up, and throwing a well-aimed Poké Ball. You can also toss the Poké Ball containing your ally Pokémon near a wild Pokémon to seamlessly enter battle.
Travel to the Hisui region – the Sinnoh of old—and build the region’s first Pokédex
Your adventure takes place in the expansive natural majesty of the Hisui region, where you are tasked with studying Pokémon to complete the region’s first Pokédex. Mount Coronet rises from the center, surrounded on all sides by areas with distinct environments. In this era – long before the events of the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl games – you can find newly discovered Pokémon like Wyrdeer, an evolution of Stantler, and new regional forms like Hisuian Growlithe, Hisuian Zorua, and Hisuian Zoroark! Along the way, uncover the mystery surrounding the Mythical Pokémon known as Arceus.
