Yesterday, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl were announced for the Nintendo Switch. These games are remakes of Generation IV, which was originally released on the DS and is set in the Sinnoh region.
The development is being handled by ILCA and directed by Junichi Masuda (Game Freak) and Yuichi Ueda (ILCA). The aim is to “faithfully” reproduce and “colourfully” revitalise these classics. To achieve this, the developer has gone with a chibi style in the game’s world, while in battle, the characters and Pokémon are more accurately proportioned.
Of course, as you’ve probably seen yourself, the reaction online to the chibi style in these remakes has been mixed, so we thought now would be a good time to see what the Nintendo Life community thinks about it. Vote in our poll and leave a comment down below.
