It’s official: Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl are now released and available worldwide for the Nintendo Switch! These games are remakes of the original Pokémon Diamond & Pearl for the Nintendo DS, except with enhanced graphics, more modern gameplay, and more quality of life improvements.
The Marriland website is in the process of updating the Team Builder and Pokédex to add in support for Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl and these updates should be up fairly soon. Additionally, the Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl Walkthrough section of the website will begin soon as well to help get you through the game.
Look forward to these upcoming site updates and have fun with Brilliant Diamond and/or Shining Pearl!
The upcoming Pokémon “strategic team battle game,” Pokémon UNITE, has been confirmed to release in July 2021 for the Nintendo Switch and September 2021 for mobile devices. Cross-platform play will be available as long as players link their Pokémon Trainer Club account or Nintendo Account on both devices.
New Pokémon Snap, the first (and only) new entry in the Pokémon Snap series in over 20 years, was announced for a 2021 release last year. Today, the release date for New Pokémon Snap has been made official: April 30, 2021. It will launch on that date worldwide for the Nintendo Switch, and more gameplay footage, screenshots, and information has been revealed thanks to the trailer above as well as the accompanying New Pokémon Snap website.
Kicking off today’s Pokémon Direct presentation was the announcement of a remaster of the original Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games — Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team (DS) and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team (GBA) — that were released in 2006.
The remaster is called simply Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX, and it will be released for the Nintendo Switch on March 6, 2020. The trailer, while short, shows off several memorable scenes from the original games redone in the new style. A demo for the new game will be available later today.
