Pokémon fans were incredibly excited when it was announced that they would finally be getting their beloved Gen 4 remakes. But it wasn’t just the Diamond and Pearl remakes that were announced. An entirely brand new game was announced too Pokémon: Legends Arceus.
This will be the first time since the game was announced that we’ll be seeing it again. We have no idea what to expect, but if we’re lucky we’ll actually get to see some brand new gameplay. We are expecting a trailer at least. It would be strange if we didn’t get one.
The website of the game claims that the remakes will have “easy-to-understand, player-friendly conveniences of the modern Pokémon series, plus up-close-and-personal Pokémon battle scenes”.
Hopefully, they don’t dumb the games down too much, after all… we don’t want to lost all the things that made Diamond and Pearl great!
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl are both scheduled to be released on November 19. Pokémon Legends: Arceus is coming a little later, though on January 28, 2022.
All of these games are actually set in the Sinnoh region. The only difference is that Arceus takes place “long before the events of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl“.
