The rumors were true: the 2006 games are really getting a refurbishment.
- The Pokémon Diamond / Pearl pair gets a remake
- The Pokémon Brilliant Diamond / Shining Pearl will be released in late 2021
Today, the Pokémon franchise is celebrating its 25th birthday, and on the occasion of the round anniversary, The Pokémon Company has come up with several announcements. You read about the open-world game Pokémon Legends: Arceus for Switch yesterday, but there are others here as well, with Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl arriving at the end of 2021.
As the names suggest, these are actually remakes of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl released in 2006, which have been rumored for a long time, so their announcement is actually in paper form. You can also watch the first trailer below for renovations based on the classic formula but with a modernized look.
