​PKMBuy - Is there any DLC for Pokémon Legends: Arceus? all too late

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is about to be replaced by the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and there are still plenty of loose endings that can be bundled with DLC, but time is running out. Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is scheduled to release on November 18, 2022, less than a year after Pokémon Legends: Arceus was released. Many fans were hoping for a Legends: Arceus DLC, but with the new game just a few months away, it might be too late.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a revolutionary Pokémon game that introduces players to a whole new way of hunting and catching Pokémon. Legends: Arceus offers players a semi-open world to explore while observing Pokémon's natural habitat. While the game's main story has come to an end, there are still many plot threads unresolved in Pokémon Legends: Arceus that can be easily resolved by adding DLC.

While Pokémon Legends: Arceus' DLC will be a hit with many Pokémon fans, fans probably shouldn't get their hopes up at this point. Considering how much time has passed since the release of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, and how quickly the next iteration of the Pokémon series is released, DLC, especially before November, is unlikely. The focus for fans and developers is on the new Pokémon game.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, PLA DLC

Pokémon Legends: Arceus DLC unlikely - at least for now

Pokémon Sword and Shield had two DLCs, both released within a year of the original game's release; both expansions were announced less than two months after the game's release. Pokémon Legends: Arceus has been out for about seven months without any word of DLC, with just one small update, Legends: Arceus Daybreak, available on March 18. In February 2022, just a month after the release of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Pokémon Scarlet & Violet was announced. There's reason to believe that Game Freak developers have shifted their focus from Pokémon Legends: Arceus to the new game in order to meet their 2022 release date goals.

That doesn't mean there will never be DLC for Pokémon Legends: Arceus. As many fans know, Pokémon Legends: Arceus leaves players with many unanswered questions, including whether the protagonist will eventually return to their timeline, how the region of Hisuian (Sinnoh) eventually developed, and more. The DLC can easily answer these questions; however, the Pokémon Legends: Arceus sequel can also answer them. Whether that happens depends on how much Game Freak is willing to bring its focus back to Legends: Arceus after the release of Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus fans shouldn't have high hopes for DLC anytime soon. Game Freak and Nintendo seem to be focusing their energies on the November 2022 release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, which many fans are paying more attention to. Whether players will see Legends: Arceus' DLC is an open question, and as new games and brand new Pokémon roll out, players and developers alike will likely explore areas of Pokémon Legends: Arceus' story that has lost interest.
