Coromon, the modern monster taming game from developer TRAGsoft and publisher Freedom Games, sets off to capture Nintendo Switch as well as Windows PC and Mac via Steam on Thursday, March 31, 2022.

Set off on an unforgettable adventure as a young apprentice Coromon trainer. Journey across the Velua region collecting fearsome yet adorable creatures with the latest creature catching technology from the brilliant scientist, Lux Solis. Along the way, stop a shady organization from releasing the dark power of legendary Coromon Titans upon the world.

Trek across numerous locals brought to life with beautiful pixel art to assemble a squad from more than 120 Coromon composed of various types like sand, magic, foul, heavy, air, poison, among many others. Fight in tactical battles through puzzle-filled dungeons, roadside brawls, and multi-stage boss fights against the six legendary Titans threatening the Coromon’s way of life. Return to the Trainer Hub after each battle to nurse the squad back to health before setting off once more. Grow and individually customize each Coromons’ stat pool to create the perfect dream team for either casual or competitive play.

Enjoy the way you want to play with the use of three open save slots to endlessly experiment with different Coromon strategies and select between four distinct difficulty modes, including a built-in, fan-favorite “Nuzlocke” option. Craft a capable trainer at the start of their Coromon journey with a wide selection of physical and fashion options. Take an enlightening personality test that matches trainers with the perfect starting Coromon partner, or just pick the coolest looking one.

"Coromon is our modern take on a classic and beloved genre,” said Jochem Pouwels, Founder, TRAGsoft. “Everything from the built-in difficulty options to the expanded control over stat customizations, squad combinations, and more, it’s all to create a personal and tailored experience for creature catching trainers that have been asking for this for decades. Coromon is finally almost here to give the people what they want!”

Coromon comes to Nintendo Switch as well as Windows PC and Mac via Steam for $19.99 with English, French Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese (Simplified) language support.

It looks very cute, I'm interested in this. I didn't enjoy Nexomon too much and I'm waiting for Monster Crown to be in a better state overall, hopefully this will not be released incomplete.

Honestly this won't impact pokemon, Game Freak just don't care, the Digimon cybersleuth games both showed what a monster fighting title could do with a little extra care and Game Freak just kept pumping out there crap like nothing happened.

As for the trailer, it's impressive, the sprite work is fantastic and the sounds of the monsters great... however sadly it just fails on the monster designs, I dunno what's up with them but a majority just don't feel appealing which is a shame.

Just looked and already had it on my wishlist. But honestly I usually don't play these games for very long. I think I just don't like the genre anymore.

A bit too heavily inspired by Pokemon for my taste, but the monster sprites look pretty good. Al having a difficulty option already makes it more interesting than any recent Pokemon game as that's one of their main failings.

Might check it out.

It blows my mind that there aren't more attempts at games like this.

looks better then Arceus with decent monster designs to boot. Will definitely keep an eye out.

Why every one of these "Inspired by" games are so cheap and copy superficial mechanics and looks of the original games? It's like they're saying, "Look at me, I'm JUST LIKE that other franchise that you love!"

For god’s sake, ice walking puzzles? Really?
And the combat camera, the position of sprites, the sounds, etc.
