No matter how old you are at this point, a new Pokémon game has got to get you excited. Therefore, when Pokémon Legends Arceus was announced, you were barely holding it together, wanting to get your hands on this game, right? Well, we got some news for you! Pokémon Legends Arceus got a release date!
It doesn’t matter how many more Pokémon games will come out, the excitement just never fades. But Pokémon Legends Arceus? Now, that’s a special one. True, it does look like a Breath of the Wild knockoff, but so did Fenyx: Immortals Rising and look what a great game that was.
Then again, if you’re a Pokémon fan, you’re going to buy the game no matter what, so let’s get on to the juicy part that I know you're here for. When it’s coming out!

When is the Pokémon Legends Arceus Release Date?
Pokémon Legends Arceus will release on January 28, 2022. Many of you might worry, because, if you remember, the game didn’t look thaaaat great in the preview (at least for some, I personally loved it). January 28 might sound like it’s soon, but it’s still more than half a year till its release, guys, so who knows what might change. Brush up on the lighting, and you’re good to go, I say.
You might remember, though, Pokémon Legends Arceus was announced together with Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl at the 25th Pokémon Anniversary. And those two also got a release date!
When is the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Pokémon Shining Pearl Release Date?
Good news for those of you who were more looking forward to the remakes of these classics! Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Pokémon Shining Pearl will release on November 19, 2021. Yep… THIS YEAR. Be ready to catch ‘em all… again!
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Pokémon Shining Pearl looked pretty much ready for a release this year, so there’s no surprise there, but we would have assumed that they would give Pokémon Legends Arceus a bit more time… just to be safe. Yet again, as my wonderful colleague likes to point out every opportunity he gets, if you’re a Nintendo Stan, you’re going to buy their stuff no matter what anyway. The story of how I ended up with freaking Pokémon Snap.
