We’re getting closer to the January 21 Early Access launch date for CremaGames and Humble Bundle’s monster collector Temtem. Ahead of that, we’ve got a new trailer showing off the game’s battle system and end-game areas, among other things.

Battling in Temtem is always a two-on-two affair, which forces you to carefully plan your battle pairs and take advantage of how they complement each other through synergy. It’s especially important, the trailer tells us, as you progress through the game and take on powerful Tamers and bosses.

As in Digimon, simply raising your Temtem won’t be enough to get you the most powerful critters on the Archipelago, however. For that, you’ll need to take advantage of the Breeding Center, matching up the best pairs to impart their high stats and desirable moves to their monster children.

It’s also the only way to get certain Temtem and move combos, rather like Pokemon. It’s not completely like Pokemon, though, as we’ve discussed before.

You’ll also run across Luma Temtem in the wild. Lumas are basically Shiny Pokemon; they are rare, bright versions of the original monster that also come with enhanced stats. These are reportedly difficult to find in the wild, but they’ll be more prevalent in Temtem‘s end-game areas.

These areas will include new Temtem every week, more Lumas, and Temtem with higher stats, so it sounds like there’s plenty to do even after the main adventure is over.

We’ll have our impressions of Temtem later this month, so stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Temtem news and info as it synergizes. Meanwhile, check out the Temtem starters and type overview so you can plan ahead for the Early Access launch.
