We heard back in February that the next Pokemon title for the Switch would be remakes of Pokemon Diamond & Pearl, something my daughter and I had been waiting for. As a follow on, we have now been given a date for the launch of the remake.
The launch date for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl is November 19, 2021.
The Nintendo site has an updated descriptions of how they plan to recreate the original Nintendo DS experience and what to expect.
In addition, the other upcoming Pokemon title, Pokemon Legends: Arceus also got a launch date this past week. We will be able to experience this “bold new direction” for the Pokemon series come January 28, 2022.
So we have some old and new Pokemon experiences coming up. I am definitely up for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, though I hope the release doesn’t overlap too closely with Diablo II: Resurrected. While we don’t have a firm date for the Diablo II remake, it was said that it would be available near the end of 2021, and no studio wants to launch after Christmas, so November seems a likely time for it as well. We shall see.
