TemTem - PS5 Footage

It seems like Pokemon fans without a Switch might in luck very soon, as Temtem is making its way to PS5 in 2021. The 'Pokemon-Clone' MMO was released on Steam at the start of this year and managed to become insanely popular since then. It's great news to hear that the title will be making it's way to consoles, and next-gen consoles like the PS5 at that. From what the trailer shows us it seems like the game is completely unchanged from the PC version of the game, but we can't be 100% sure about that until we hear more from the developers. 

Temtem came out to a fanfare back in January for providing the Pokemon experience on PCs for the first time. Unlike many other attempts to make monster capturing simulators work, Temtem managed to differentiate itself from Pokemon enough to avoid the famously litigation-happy Nintendo coming down on them like a ton of bricks. That particular stance might be something that the big N is severely regretting now that Temtem is making its way to their biggest competitors of course. 

It also seems like the game will still require a PlayStation Plus subscription to be played, despite coming from a platform with free online multiplayer. Whether or not this will have any effect on the title's sales when it moves to console is yet to be seen, but with rumors flying that Xbox may be scrapping Xbox Gold soon, PlayStation might need to re-examine their approach to how they run their online services. 

You can check out the trailer for yourself below, or if you want more information you can check out the Steam page, our preview of the PC version of the game, or maybe even some of the guides to prepare yourself for the PS5 release.
