Next month, on 27th February, it will have been 25 years since the launch of the original Pokémon Game Boy titles.
This also happens to line up with “Pokémon Day”, and as usual, there’ll likely be a special presentation to go with it. So what can trainers around the world possibly expect, if there are any big announcements?
Spanish fansite Centro Pokémon says sources close to the project have confirmed remakes of the DS titles Pokémon Diamond & Pearl are in development and will be revealed next month. Here’s a rough translation, courtesy of Google:
“Pokémon Center can confirm that, according to sources close to the company, remakes of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl , originally released in 2006 for the Nintendo DS, are in development for the Nintendo Switch .”
These new versions apparently won’t be like the Pokémon: Let’s Go games released on the Nintendo Switch in 2018, and will be closer in style to the original DS releases from 2006.
Pokémon insider Kelios – who also happens to be the webmaster of Pokekalos – has backed up these latest claims. A few days ago they also mentioned how a Pokémon Direct would be taking place next month.
