Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl is due for release at the end of this year according to an announcement from Nintendo at the Pokemon 25th Anniversary presentation. The newly reimagined version of the 2007 original will be released exclusively on the Nintendo Switch- but how much space will players need on their consoles?

The new game will be a polished remake of the 2007 original of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl games. This updated version will include the same story, well-known characters, and the same mechanics, but with far better graphics than before and a great new art style. Players will also notice how the game has been developed to stay true to its roots while looking thoroughly modern and aesthetically exciting.
