This morning, Nintendo announced three new Pokémon games coming to the Switch console: Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, and Pokémon Shining Pearl.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus
Return to the Sinnoh region and explore the land in a different era to document the wild Pokémon that inhabit it. This new adventure begins with starters from different regions: the grass-flying Rowlet from Alola, fire-based Cyndaquil from Johto, and water-type Oshawatt from Unova. Here, there’s no Pokémon League, no such thing as Pokémon Trainer; even the rudimentary Pokéballs are carved from wood! The mythical Arceus was said to have shaped Sinnoh, so it’s only wise to keep an eye open this creature’s legacy.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus will launch on January 28th, 2022.
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, and Pokémon Shining Pearl
Revisit the Sinnoh region in remastered versions of the original Nintendo DS titles Pokémon Diamond Version and Pokémon Pearl Version. Enjoy the classic story with captivating graphics as this journey to become Champion of the Pokémon League unfolds in the shadows of the mighty Mount Coronet and the legendary Dialga and Palkia. Choose from the grass-type Turtwig, the fire-based Chimchar and the water-type Piplup to relive this adventure.
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl will launch on November 19th, 2021.
