Trainers around the world finally know when Pokemon Legends Arceus and the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes will be released. 

The news broke back in March, during a Nintendo press conference, as The Pokemon Company celebrated its 25th anniversary with two monumental announcements.

They confirmed that not only was Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl coming out in 2021, but also a sneak peek at something potentially bigger – Pokemon Legends Arceus.

Despite keeping cards close to their chest about both projects since that time, as attention turned to Pokemon Snap in April, we now have some massive news.

They also showed off the pack art, seen below for Nintendo Switch.

A little while after those posts, The Pokemon Company confirmed the news on Twitter.

They posted a simple “January 28, 2022” release date message, and more interestingly a link for pre-orders as well.
