Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, Shiny Pearl & Legends Arceus Get Release Dates

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, Pokémon Shiny Pearl and Pokémon Legends Arceus were all announced back in February 2021 during the 25th anniversary live stream. Now, they’ve finally received official release dates, courtesy of the Pokémon Company.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Pokémon Shiny Pearl

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl will launch for the Nintendo Switch on 19 November 2021 worldwide.

Here is an overview of the game, via The Pokemon Company:

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

Pokemon Legends: Arceus will launch for the Nintendo Switch on 28 January 2022.

Here is an overview of the game, via The Pokemon Company:

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.
