Double Pack

As if today's Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl release date news wasn't enough, Nintendo has now revealed that a special double pack featuring both games will also hit store shelves.

Just like the Sword and Shield double pack before it, this special bundle will unsurprisingly include both games in a single package, perfect for anyone who's already set on buying and owning both versions. It'll release on the same day as the standalone and digital editions – 19th November.

Currently, the double pack has been confirmed for North America, Europe and Australia / New Zealand.

The release date for Pokémon Legends: Arceus was also confirmed earlier today; the new take on Pokémon's Sinnoh region launches on Switch in January 2022.

Is it just us, or does all of this news feel like it could (should?) have been part of E3?
