Palworld gives Pokémon-like creatures guns for some bizarre reason

Every so often, an absolutely bananas video game comes along that causes everyone to stand in wondrous awe, and Palworld  is the latest example.

Developed by Japanese studio Pocket Pair, Palworld  is a bizarro monster-collecting game  similar to Pokémon  — only there are guns. Not to be confused with the  unofficial Pokémon FPS, either. Palworld  is an open-world crafting survival game where to catch cutesy monsters, store them in Poké Ball-like spheres, and occasionally mow-down enemies with machine guns. Yes, really.

On Monday, Pocket Pair graced us with Palworld’s  second trailer, and it’s every bit absurd as everyone would hope. Be sure to check it out for yourself below.

We might already have an early frontrunner for  the weirdest gaming story  of 2022. Though you have to hand it to Palworld, it doesn’t look cheaply made — far from it, in fact. Palworld  is coming to PC sometime this year, though no exact date or release window has been given by Pocket Pair yet. 

The timing for Palworld’s  new trailer couldn’t be better, given everyone is ridiculously  excited for Pokémon Legends: Arceuswhich comes out later this week. Given that monster collecting games are in short supply, here’s to hoping that Palworld  turns out well.
