In February, The Pokémon Company lifted the curtain on its upcoming projects to celebrate the franchise’s 25th anniversary. The biggest reveals were obviously Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Since then, we haven’t received much other information for either of them beyond release dates. However, we will apparently be seeing more info on Pokémon Legends: Arceus “soon.” In an interview with GamesBeat, JC Smith, the senior director of consumer marketing at The Pokemon Company International, discussed how they are celebrating 25 years of Pokémon. Smith briefly touched upon Pokémon Legends: Arceus, where he suggested that more info will be arriving soon:
GamesBeat: We also have Pokémon Legends: Arceus coming out next year. When do you think we’ll hear more about that?
Smith: That one, we have a robust rollout, but not a lot that I can share at this time. But the team has a lot of great things to share, and you’ll be hearing from us soon.
It is possible that another Pokémon Presents is scheduled to take place soon, as we still don’t have much information about Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, which launches in just over three months. The Sinnoh remakes were rated in Australia yesterday, so one way or another, we are getting closer to discovering what the Pokémon franchise has in store for us. Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl launch on November 19, 2021, while Pokémon Legends: Arceus arrives on January 28, 2022.
