Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Launches Late 2021

The Pokemon Company has recently announced the new video games Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Both games will be for Nintendo Switch, and they are developed by ILCA, Inc. and directed by Junichi Masuda from GAME FREAK and Yuichi Ueda from ILCA. Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will enable fans to experience the original story and game features from the original versions in a new way.

These new versions of the originals have faithfully reproduced and colorfully revitalized the games for the Nintendo Switch. The sense of scale of the towns and routes has been carefully preserved and fans will be in for nostalgia as they see familiar faces and places. These have been updates with easy-to-understand, player-friendly conveniences introduced in recent Pokemon core series games. It also features the up-close-and-personal Pokemon battle scenes.

Trainers can choose between Tutwig, Chimchar, or Piplup for their first partner Pokemon before starting a new journey. Players will be able to encounter the legendary Pokemon Dialga in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and legendary Pokemon Palkia in Pokemon Shining Pearl.

Both games are planned for release worldwide in late 2021.
