For what is considered more time than its predecessors, Pokémon fans are heavily awaiting a new remake for the fourth generation installments: Pokémon Diamond & Pokémon Pearl. The duo both released on Nintendo DS back in 2007 and watch its formers welcome in remakes and other humbling returns which almost feel insulting to say the least. But, a recent report issued the series is to remark on the two games later in 2021.
While there is no direct precedence as to when that will be, many belied it would take place on Pokémon Day this week. In that, The Pokémon Company issued a virtual concert featuring musical artist Post Malone will be held. So, many presumed the announcement would take place sometime around the online-hosted performance.
Instead, The Pokémon Company announced a special Pokémon Showcase running for about 20 minutes. Part of that presentation, the firm officially unveiled Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Pokémon Shining Pearl. You can watch the reveal trailer in the video below:
“Adventures in the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl games will take place in the Sinnoh region,” reads the description on the game’s website. “Rich in nature and with Mount Coronet towering at its heart, Sinnoh is a land of many myths passed down through the ages. You’ll visit many different locations in the Sinnoh region, while striving to become the Champion of the Pokémon League.”
Alike previous remakes, this new two-game project incorporates the same fundamentals of the original in a new translation conjured for the latest Nintendo Switch hardware. For either those returning or visiting the Sinnoh region for the first time – The Pokémon Company encourages all fans to take the effort in experiencing the new title.
