Temtem Gets A Next-Gen Console Release In 2021


There’s a chance you’ve never heard of Temtem before, but if you’re a fan of the monster collection genre (ie. Pokemon) the likelihood is that you have. Kickstarted back in 2018, Temtem promised a massively multiplayer world of monster collecting that people have dreamed of since the early days of Pokemon. After releasing on early access on PC this year to rave reviews, it’s now been confirmed that Temtem will be getting a console release next year.

Revealed during this morning’s State of Play, it’s been confirmed that Temtem will be getting a console release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in 2021. For those unaware of the game, Temtem is a colourful, surprisingly difficult take on the monster collection genre of games. Taking control of your own customer character, you’re dropped into a world filled with mysterious Temtem to collect and multitudes of other players who are also experiencing the game. You can interact with those other players if you want, but you’re also completely free to ignore them and play the game as though it was a single player experience.

Differentiating it from other games like Pokemon, are the co-op aspects of the game, as well as the customisation options. You can team up with friends to play, interact with other players, build and customise your own house or completely ignore all of that and just catch a multitude of Temtem. If the Steam reviews are anything to go by, developers Crema have certainly got a winning formula here.

Temtem will release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in 2021, while the game is available on Steam Early Access right now.
