Twenty-five years (and two months) after the original.

One of the major holiday games for the Switch will be a pair of remakes.

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will launch in the "Friday before Black Friday" slot of November 19, with Pokemon Legends: Arceus following on January 28, 2022. A double pack of BD/SP will also be available.

Both titles were announced on February 27 with targeted release dates of "fall" and "early 2022" at the time.

Pokemon Diamond was the last Pokemon game I beat, after that i've played Black, X, and Sword but not finished any of them. I might pick up this remake, depending on the changes they make. I hated that Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee they removed the Celadon Casino (because of Europe's ridiculous laws).
