Just a heads up, while Pokemon fans are preparing for the upcoming New Pokemon Snap which will be out on April 30th, 2021 on Switch, fans will be getting a lot more Pokemon content this year.
Diamond and Pearl Remake
Making their debut in 2006, Pokemon fans got the chance to play the Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl on the Nintendo DS. In case you either missed this game or missed out on playing in the Sinnoh Region, fans will be able to relieve this world on the Nintendo Switch. Announced last week, Nintendo annouced the news that the fourth generation of Pokemon will be brought back and made in 3D in this Diamond and Pearl reboot. These reboot games will be titled Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl. No release date yet, but these reboots will be released later this year in 2021.
Pokemon Legends Arceus
If Diamond and Pearl wasn’t enough for you, Nintendo has another exciting game for Sinnoh fans. Announced on the same day, Nintendo announced a brand new Pokemon game called Pokemon Legends Arceus. In a trailer, fans will be able to explore the Sinnoh region in a huge, open world game set in a feudal Japan era. However, unlike Diamond and Pearl, the character designs will be based on Japanese themes and the starter Pokemon will be Rowlet, Oshawott and Cyndaquil. Based on the ending of the trailer, fans can expect an encounter with the legendary divine Pokemon Arceus. Pokemon Legends Arceus is expected to be launched in 2022 for Nintendo Switch.
