Meet All Nine Nexomon: Extinction Starters

Nexomon: Extinction offers nine starters to choose from, each with their own unique personality traits.

Developer VEWO Interactive is bringing Nexomon: Extinction to Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam this summer. And they just revealed the game's starters, nine Nexomon you can choose from.

That's two more than the original Nexomon — which was Steam only when it was first ported from mobile a few years ago — let you choose from.

Here are all the Nexomon: Extinction starters and their types.

Noki — Water Nexomon

First up is Noki, the Water Nexomon. It's a water fowl known for loyalty and confidence.

Gekoko — Electric Nexomon

Gekoko is an Electric Nexomon, a curious critter who, despite wanting to know more about the world around it, prefers to remain hidden most of the time.

Behilda — Ghost Nexomon

As the name suggests, Behilda the Ghost Nexomon likes to take its head off. These Nexomon stay hidden in the darkness most of the time, though.

Lume — Fire Nexomon

Lume might look absolutely adorable, but cuddle it at your own risk. This Fire Nexomon is completely covered in flames from paw to tail.

Masquiti — Psychic Nexomon

Apparently, people see Masquiti and think it's a Ghost Nexomon. But it's not. It's a Psychic Nexomon with a rather off-beat sense of humor.

Mearn — Wind Nexomon

Mearn is deceptive in that it looks friendly, but is actually a devious wild hunter. This Wind Nexomon lives in the prairies and mountain foothills, using the wind to aid its search for prey.

Trebly — Mineral Nexomon

Trebly the Mineral Nexomon likes to prove how strong its horns are by challenging other Trebly to headbutting competitions.

Mara — Plant Nexomon

Mara, the Plant Nexomon, wants you to pet it. A lot. That's easy to do thanks to how cute and charming it is, two qualities it uses in battle to unsettle opponents.

Dinja — Normal Nexomon

And finally is Dinja, the Normal Nexomon. It's fluffy, stubby legs mean it gets around by hopping everywhere.

If this is the first you've heard of it, the original Nexomon drops you in a big world with hundreds of Nexomon to discover. Unlike another certain monster catcher we could name, Nexomon's villains are actually Nexomon themselves, wild and giant versions of the creatures bent on destroying the world.

Nexomon: Extinction is a sequel set in a new region, with over 300 Nexomon spanning 11 element types to tame as you try to stop the Tyrant Nexomon from wreaking havoc across the world. You can get a glimpse of how it looks in the trailer at the top of this post.

Between Temtem earlier in the year, Pokemon Sword and Shield's expansion pass due out June 17, and now Nexomon: Extinction, it's safe to say 2020 is the year of monster catchers so far.

The original starter Nexomon announcement is over on Gematsu. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Nexomon: Extinction news as it develops.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
