The Pokémon franchise has influenced a lot of games in the RPG genre. Many monster-hunting based games have come out since it’s release. Famous shows like Digimon are just one of the many examples. A lot of studios have tried to bank on the monster-hunting craze started by Pokémon. And a new game based on the same formula is coming out very soon.
Coromon is a new monster-catching game developed by TRAGsoft. The new RPG is releasing on March 31, 2022 for Nintendo Switch and PC. Freedom Games is publishing this monster based game. If you like monster-hunting games like Pokémon, you’ll love Coromon. This RPG is based on the same concept with a few twists of it own.
What is Coromon About?
The player will control a young trainer as he sets off on a new adventure. You will use your player to catch Coromon, as you might have guessed. You will have to catch different types of Coromon, with the game having a lot of variety. So, its premise is very similar to another game you love.
While travelling through the Velua region you will encounter many different things. You will battle other trainers along the way. But, the bigger enemy is even worse. The player has to stop a devious organization from using Coromon the wrong way. The organization is using legendary Coromon for shady purposes of their own.
The familiarity to Pokémon is very obvious in this game. The game is made to appeal to that community and its not doing a bad job. It even has a hardcore mode for the more veteran players. There is also a Nuzlocke option which allows players to make their own rules in the game.
Developer Jochem Pouwels also talked about the influence of Pokémon. He said that Coromon is their take on a beloved and old genre. The founder of TRAGsoft said that the game is built to create a more personal experience for veterans. The fans have wanted a more customizable monster-catching game for a long time and Coromon gives them exactly this.
This take on the genre is certainly very interesting. Introducing something new to such an old concept is not an easy task. Coromon is a very modern take on a long-standing genre and one that will interest RPG fanatics. The game launches on March 31 for $19.99 on the Switch and PC.
