pokemon brilliant diamond shining pearl reviews

Ahead of this week’s launch, reviews for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl are now starting to emerge. Nintendo just lifted the embargo on the two Switch games.

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl were announced for Switch this past February. New trailers and information have been shared regularly since then, though it’s safe to say that these are traditional remakes. While the graphics have been spruced up and a few new features are included, the DS games haven’t seen a radical overhaul. We recently shared a video – available here – discussing the remakes and why The Pokemon Company opted for this approach.

Here’s a roundup of some early reviews for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl:

Game Informer – 8.5 / 10
Gamereactor – 8 / 10
Shacknews – 7 / 10
GameXplain – “Liked-a-Lot”
Polygon – “Recommended”
GameSpot – N/A
The Verge – N/A

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl will release for Switch around the world on November 19. You can access the official site here.
