Pokemon Diamond and Pearl get remakes from a new developer, out this year

The collective powers of Pok√©mon fandom have dreamed it into existence ‚ÄĒ Pok√©mon Diamond and Pearl are getting the remake treatment as Pok√©mon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl.

The game features a new 3D graphical style and the same battle engine as Pokémon Sword and Shield. More importantly this is the first mainline game not to be made entirely by Game Freak. The developers behind the new remakes are ILCA, a support studio which has helped with development on games like Dragon Quest XI (and its S counterpart), Code Vein, and NieR: Automata. They also worked on Pokémon HOME.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl will be released on Switch in Late 2021. No date has been set beyond that. You can watch the adorable trailer and check out a bunch of artwork and screenshots below.
