The Pokémon Company has announced the official release dates for both Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and Pokémon Legends: Arceus on Nintendo Switch.

Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, remakes of the original Diamond and Pearl on Nintendo DS, will launch on 19th November 2021. Pokémon Legends: Arceus will follow very shortly afterwards on 28th January 2022.

In case you need a quick reminder, Legends: Arceus is a completely new take on the series, with players exploring a vast, open-world version of Sinnoh "as it existed in the past."

You can find pre-orders for the new Diamond and Pearl games here, and Legends: Arceus here.
