Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl Release Date: Everything You Need to Know
These remakes are coming later this year!
In February 2021, The Pokemon Company and Nintendo revealed Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl, Switch remakes of the original Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl video games that were released on the Nintendo DS in 2006.
Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will take players to the Sinnoh region of the Pokemon universe, where they can choose from three starting Pokemon: Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup.
Players will have a slightly different experience with the game, depending on the version they choose to play. For instance, Brilliant Diamond will feature the Legendary Pokemon Dialga, while Shining Pearl will feature the Legendary Pokemon Palkia.
While the games will be familiar to trainers who played the original Diamond and Pearl, in a press release, The Pokemon Company said they will also feature “the easy-to-understand, player-friendly conveniences introduced in recent Pokémon core series video games, in addition to up-close-and-personal Pokémon battle scenes.”
When Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl were first announced, The Pokemon Company didn’t reveal their release date. However, it has now announced that Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl will be released on November 19, 2021.
