Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are available now. However, if you’ve listened to the second episode of All Things Nintendo, we’ve already covered in depth what these remakes bring to the table. Rather than renewing old ground, this episode shifts the focus to the Pokémon franchise’s longstanding tradition of bringing revamped versions of their older games to modern platforms. Host Brian Shea invites colleagues Game informers Editor John Carson returns for the history of the Pokémon remakes before he picks up some final thoughts on Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
