Pokémon-like Temtem coming to Xbox Series X in 2021
Xbox fans have another game to look forward to next year.
What you need to know
- Temtem is a creature-collection game in the style of Pokémon.
- Where it differs from Pokémon is that it's an MMO with a greater emphasis on online elements.
- Developer Crema Games revealed that it is coming to Xbox Series X in 2021.
We've known for quite a bit that developer Crema Games had plans to bring Temtem to consoles, but now the studio has confirmed that Temtem is coming to Xbox Series X. During Sony's latest State of Play, Temtem was shown off in a new trailer slated for a 2021 release. The developer went on to confirm that it would make its way to Xbox Series X in addition to PS5.
Temtem took a lot of flak for essentially being a Pokémon clone, but it owns its similarities. What Pokémon hasn't done has made a true MMO-style game, and that's exactly the void that Temtem fills. The trailer made no mention of an Xbox One version, It's unclear if that is still in the plans at all or if it's exclusive to next-gen consoles.
You can currently play it in Early Access on Steam, and as you'll note from its user reviews, it's gotten quite the positive reception.
Take a dive into Temtem while it's in early access
Is it a Pokémon clone? Sure, but Crema knows that. Temtem offers a lot more than muse when it comes to its online elements. Pokémon has stagnated over the years, so maybe Temtem can fill a void.

I don't like how the whole communication has been designed to hide other consoles and make it lool like it's only coming to Playstation. This culture of exclusives is getting really negative. This should also be reviewed by the antitrust police. It's unfair business. Anyway, the game is great, lots of style and charm, and combat is deep and strategic. It's not a Pokemon clone, after all, the monster collecting genre predates Pokemon. But it's a game worth playing if to u like Pokemon. This is the next Pokemon.
