There's good news for friends of the Pokémon Sinnoh region. In addition to the open-world role-playing game Pokémon Legends: Arceus, which is due to appear in 2022, the remakes of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl will also bring players back to Sinnoh. Pokémon Radiant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl have a cute chibi look and are intended to be true-to-original remakes of the two games from 2006. In a trailer that was shown along with the announcement, we see some well-known locations and get a glimpse of the Pokémon battles. On the official site of the remakes Nintendo writes about the two games:
"The story of the originals remains unchanged, and the proportions of cities and routes have also been retained. Pokémon Diamond players (buy now ) and Pokémon Perl can return to familiar locations and relive well-known moments. Meanwhile, numerous new encounters and surprises await newcomers to the Sinnoh region. "
Pokémon Radiant Diamond and Shining Pearl promise pure nostalgia for all old hands and offer a completely new adventure for all those who have not yet had contact with Pokémon. As to be expected, players will have the choice between Chelast, Panflam, and Plinfa as starter Pokémon.
The two remakes will be released for Nintendo Switch this year. Perfect for the originals' 15th birthday and Pokémon's 25th birthday.
