Nintendo begins to take action against Palworld




Since last month, one of the games that has been in the spotlight the most is neither more nor less than Palworld, a delivery that combines survival and also the capture of monsters that will help the main characters go through the most complex challenges that come with inhabiting this environment.

With that in mind, the game's community has not shied away from expressing its frustration over these violations that might not have much to do with the pocket monsters created by Game Freak.

Here is the screenshot of the notice regarding the character Sparkit:

For its part, one that should drop is the mod released in which you can see a skin as is from this franchise, putting Ash as the avatar of the protagonists and other well-known faces that come directly from the anime in question.

Remember that Palworld Is available in Xbox Series X/S and PC. You can also try with Game Pass.
