Pokémon Quest Free To Start On Nintendo Switch


Pokémon Quest is now available on the US Switch eShop! Get to collecting them all!


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.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if the Pokémon universe collided with Cubivore? Well, Pokémon Quest shows us what that might look like, at least graphically. This is a brand new Action/RPG coming to the Switch and smart phones. Everything is made out of cubes on Tumblecube Island, where this new adventure takes place. You’ll be able to explore the new land for hidden treasures and battle wild Pokémon, Pokéxel.

You’ll have to find special Power Stones to make your Pokémon stronger. Incidentally, this is the same name for the items you’re trying to find in the new Mario Tennis Aces, not to mention that they were important items in Capcom’s fighting series: Power Stone. Anyway, you’ll have to find different ingredients so you can cook them up and create new foods to attract various Pokémon and fill in your Pokédex.

Since Pokémon Quest is also a smart device game, the entire thing can be controlled via the Switch’s touchscreen. However, if you feel a controller is necessary there is that option as well (which is good because otherwise how would you play on the TV?). The game is said to be available later today on the Switch and will arrive on smart devices in June.
