Here's a new look at the Pokemon Unite MOBA, which might launch next spring


The beta could be coming soon

Just a few months ago, The Pokemon Company made a big deal about a special stream that would showcase an upcoming project, that a lot of people thought would involve the next generation of Pokemon or a remake of a beloved entry. Instead, it was the announcement of a Pokemon MOBA in collaboration with Tencent.

Yes, Pokemon Unite was one of the first big disappointments of the summer, a streak Nintendo would continue by hyping up a Bakugan Switch game from WayForward. But it is coming, and thanks to new images and info from Chinese social media (gathered by ResetEra), we may have our first real info dump since the May reveal.

In addition to several new screenshots (that showcase additional characters like Drednaw), evidently reports point to an internal test in August, with a lengthy development cycle that will continue throughout spring 2021: when the game will eventually be released. Details like a (no doubt heavily monetized) cosmetic system for your trainer have also leaked.

As a reminder, Pokemon Unite will arrive on Android, iOS and Switch at some point in the future.
