You play as Asha, a green-haired girl accompanied by her help Pokémon-looking sidekick Pepelogoo. Working together, the two heroes have to save the world from evil. You know, the usual schtick. Exactly who they’re tasked with fighting against has yet to be revealed, but they’re sure to be dastardly and dangerous.

Asha in the Monster World will also have a fully voiced cast; a first for the series, which makes it very exciting.
