The Pokémon Company has released a new cinematic trailer for Pokémon UNITE, a brand new mobile MOBA that competes directly with the likes of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.
If successful, Nintendo is getting its food in on the mobile gaming market. This, coupled with the fact that UNITE is crossplay-enabled with the Switch, sets up the game for success.
Being a MOBA, the new game requires intensive teamwork between players, each having a Pokémon that evolve during matches. This means you start off as a Scorbunny and evolve it as Cinderace in the duration of the match.
The trailer showed off the pocket monsters battling with unique abilities as well as “hoops” that it looks like they have to obtain.
Watch the new trailer below:
Pokémon GO remains one of the most popular mobile games at the moment, and UNITE looks like it’s Nintendo’s bet to keep that streak alive.
