(Pocket-lint) – It’s been a big year for quite a few gaming franchises in the land of Nintendo, with Mario and The Legend of Zelda celebrating big milestones, but now it’s Pokémon that’s centre stage, in the middle of its 25th anniversary year.
Earlier this year we got the long-awaited news that remakes are coming of Diamond and Pearl, alongside a truly intriguing new game called Pokémon Legends: Arceus, but beyond first trailers we didn’t get loads of details on them.

How can I watch the Pokémon Presents livestream?

Pokémon Presents livestream – what to expect
We know that the livestream will be covering both Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, as well as Legends: Arceus, so there should be plenty of ground for it to cover.
While we’ve seen a bit of the remakes’ updated art style, it would be great to see some more extended slices of gameplay so that we can compare the game world, and in particular what battles look like in this updated remaster.
On the Legends: Arceus side, we’re really curious to learn more about what the game’s core gameplay will look like, and how it might differ from the regular Pokémon Games we’ve been enjoying down the years.
Hopefully by the time it ends we’ll be able to look forward to all three games with a bunch more confidence – after all, it’s only a few months before they’re all out in the wild.
