reviews roundup

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:

With Atlus having just lifted the embargo for Shin Megami Tensei V, we’ve gone ahead and rounded up some of the early reviews.

The RPG is a bit of landmark title as fans have been waiting quite a long time for its release. Atlus first announced Shin Megami Tensei V during the unveiling of the Switch way back in January 2017. Now in just a few days, fans around the world will be able to go through the entire experience. It follows the 2013 game Shin Megami Tensei IV, though we also saw the sequel Shin Megami Tensei IV apocalypse in 2016.
