Multi Online Battle Arena (MOBA) games has been around for a long time and still loved by many. Games like League of Legends, Dota 2 and Arena of Valor are probably the most well-known names, even if you’re not a gamer you would have at least heard these names come up in conversation every now and then. They are the OG of Esports and boosted the rise of streamers. Nintendo saw juicy market of MOBA and decided to invest with the developers, the Pokemon Company and TiMi Studios.
Based on the name, fans will be quick to recognise that this will not be like any of the previous Pokemon games. Yes, you guessed it! Pokemon Unite is a MOBA game which will be released on Nintendo Switch and other mobile devices! As a MOBA player myself and with the familiarity with Pokemon, I have to say this is another exciting game that will definitely be on my to-play list.
Players will be able to pick their desired Pokemon as their champions, and the Pokemon will evolve along with levelling up and unlocking new skills. As usual, the maximum will be five players on one team. However, the overall game aesthetics seem to mimic the look of League of Legends – not that I’m complaining though.
The game will be free to download on Nintendo Switch, IOS and Andriod plus the availability to play with other players on different platforms, how good!
