Pokémon Presents is back tonight with brand new looks at Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, Shining Pearl and Legends Arceus, the three most anticipated Nintendo games on the calendar.
After a brief intermission ruled by Monster Hunter Stories 2 and Skyward Sword, Pokémon fans are in for a real treat, with the news and gameplay-filled showcase set to go for 28 minutes.
The focus will likely be on the Diamond and Pearl remakes due out this November (given they’re the most timely), but it does appear we’ll get to see new gameplay from Pokémon Legends Arceus, which is shaping up to be one of the most ambitious and good-looking Pokémon games ever.
Regardless of which game you’ve got your eye on, you’ll want to tune into the newest episode of Pokémon Presents today, Wednesday, August 18, for some juicy updates.
We haven’t seen much of any of these upcoming games, so we should be in for a great time.
