Pokémon Diamond and Pearl remakes coming late 2021

Nintendo and The Pokémon Company announced a 3D remake of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl. Originally released for the Nintendo DS, the games have been remade for the Nintendo Switch in the look of the recent Pokémon Let’s GO games, though it doesn’t look like it still be utilizing any of the motion Pokéball throwing mechanic.

Developed by ILCA, Inc., and directed by Junichi Masuda (GAME FREAK) and Yuichi Ueda (ILCA), Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl enable fans to experience the original story and game features from Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl in a fresh way. The original games have been faithfully reproduced and colorfully revitalized for Nintendo Switch. The sense of scale of the towns and routes has been carefully preserved, and fans who played the original games will recognize many familiar places. These games are updated with 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.

Trainers will choose either Turtwig, Chimchar, or Piplup to be their first partner Pokémon before setting off on their journey. Along the way, they will be able to encounter the Legendary Pokémon Dialga in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and the Legendary Pokémon Palkia in Pokémon Shining Pearl.

The games are pegged to come out in late 2021, likely in November.
