As long-time fans know, the Pokémon series isn’t exactly at the forefront when it comes to innovation. Sure, with each new generation numerous new pocket monsters are added and the developers at Game Freak come up with a few game mechanics for each new part. But both in terms of content and technology, there is a feeling that the Pokémon series is rather treading water. It was refreshing that Pokémon Legends brought new impetus. And they now want to offer similar new impulses with Pokémon Crimson & Purple – for example through a much more open game world. We were finally able to play the new Pokémon adventures and reveal in the big title story what else has happened and how we like the innovations.
Speaking of what has happened, as usual at this time of year, there is also a lot going on in the testing area of the current N-ZONE. This time, on a mighty 38 pages, you can read how we carefully checked the new games of the autumn season with a scrutinizing eye. And what kind of! There’s the tactically fun Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope and the once again pleasantly insane Bayonetta 3. Or the humorous adventure New Tales from the Borderlands, the action-fest Nier Automata and the cute Lego Bricktales. And with A Plague Tale: Requiem and Resident Evil 8 Village, two top-class players have made it onto the switch as cloud versions. Technically, however, the implementations of the two differ significantly from one another.

Our mix of topics is rounded off this time by the first part of the walkthrough for The Return of Monkey Island, a preview of the very chic Crisis Core Final Fantasy 7 Reunion, a report on licensed games and why they are often (but not always) better than their bad reputation and a special relaunching Overwatch 2, which also launched as a Free2Play game on Switch in early October.
