Pokémon is set to keep Nintendo fans quite busy in the coming months.
Off the heels of the recently released New Pokémon Snap, Nintendo has announced a trifecta of Nintendo Switch Pokémon release dates today. The company confirmed that before the end of the year, you’ll be able to get your hands on Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl for Switch. These revamped editions of the Nintendo DS titles Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl will both drop on November 19.
The box-art for both remakes was also revealed:
Alongside the announcement that a “double pack” will be made available including both games (Nintendo has done this for previous Pokémon games as well)
Then, just two-and-a-bit months later, players will be lining up at doors of the eShop (or their favorite offline retailer) to hand over their hard-earned dollars for Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus promises a new story in the familiar setting of the Sinnoh region, set long before the ideas of being a Pokémon trainer or entering the Pokémon League were even a thing. It’s a sizable departure for the series and looks to be the biggest shake-up in series history. This new adventure will be available for Nintendo Switch on January 28.
