Nintendo has announced the release date for two major upcoming Pokémon games: Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shinning Pearl are remakes of the cult-classic games that were originally released for the Nintendo DS. They are being remade for the Nintendo Switch.
Both of these games will be out on November 19, 2021. There is also a double pack that comes with both games in a single bundle.
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl are faithful remakes of Pokemon Diamond Version and Pokemon Pearl Version, which were released on the Nintendo DS system in 2006. Whether or not players have explored the Sinnoh region before, they can look forward to this great adventure, reborn on Nintendo Switch. The original story has been faithfully reproduced, and various game functions have been colorfully revitalized. Trainers can expect an adventure through the Sinnoh region that feels both nostalgic and fresh.
The Pokemon featured in the newly released package designs of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl are the Legendary Pokemon Dialga and Palkia. Trainers will be able to discover the mysterious connection between Dialga or Palkia and the Sinnoh region during their adventures.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a brand new spin-off based on the IP. It is an open-world game with a completely new battle and capture system. It is confirmed to launch on January 28, 2022.
In Pokemon Legends: Arceus, the Pokemon series takes a bold new direction, fusing action with RPG elements. The game takes place in the Sinnoh region of the past, long before the events of Pokemon Diamond Version and Pokemon Pearl Version. As the game’s protagonist, the player will set out to create and complete the region’s first Pokedex by catching, surveying, and researching the wild Pokemon that live there.
The cover art, revealed here for the first time, depicts Mount Coronet towering over the expanse of a bygone Sinnoh region—the setting for the story in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.
