The Pokemon Company and developer TiMi Studio Group announced today the Pokemon UNITE launch date for the Nintendo Switch.
Pokemon UNITE is a strategic team battle that plays similarly to games like Mobile Legends or League of Legends and will be released on July 21 for Nintendo Switch. The game will be free to start with optional in-game purchases available. Aside from the Switch version, a mobile version for both iOS and Android will launch sometime in September.
Additionally, players who log in and play the Switch version of Pokemon UNITE by August 31 will receive a Unite license for Zeraora, which will allow trainers to use the Pokemon in battle.
Here’s an overview of Pokemon UNITE, via the Pokemon Company:
Pokemon UNITE is the first Pokemon strategic team battle game. Players face off against each other in five-on-five team battles. During these battles, players will cooperate with teammates to defeat wild Pokemon and level up to evolve their own Pokemon. They will need to defeat their opponents’ Pokemon while trying to earn more points than the opposing team within the allotted time. Pokemon UNITE will be free-to-start, with optional in-game purchases available.
