Last year was the first time since 2015 that the end of the year didn’t have a new Pokemon game release, although Nintendo did fill the gap with the fun Crown Tundra expansion for Pokemon Sword and Shield. This year though, Pokemon is back and taking another trip through time with a remake of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl.
Reviews have gone live for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, with several critics praising the game’s balance between a nostalgic tour of the Sinnoh region while adding some welcome quality-of-life updates to the standard Pokemon formula. GameSpot’s Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl review-in-progress by Steve Watts said that the game’s modern quality-of-life tweaks smooth over some rough edges and the animated chibi art style is adorable, but the “classic vibe also feels like you’ve done this before.”
