Some History About ILCA, The Japanese Studio Working On The Pokémon Diamond And Pearl Remakes - Nintendo Life
Feb 28, 2021 3 mins, 53 secs

During the Pokémon Presents broadcast this week, The Pokémon Company announced remakes of the Nintendo DS games, Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.

While Game Freak normally handles games like this, right now, it's busy with the open-world prequel Pokémon Legends: Arceus, which is due out next year.

This leaves the release of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl in 2021 in the hands of a Japanese studio called ILCA.

Yes - before the Diamond and Pearl remakes it was responsible for the cloud-based storage app, Pokémon HOME.

"Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl enable fans to experience the original story and game features from Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl in a fresh way.

The original games have been faithfully reproduced and colourfully revitalized for Nintendo Switch.

These games are updated with the easy-to-understand, player-friendly conveniences introduced in recent Pokémon core series video games, in addition to up-close-and-personal Pokémon battle scenes.".

So, there's your crash course in ILCA - the team behind Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl?

Think it's got what it takes to remake the Generation IV Pokémon games.

When he’s not paying off a loan to Tom Nook, Liam likes to report on the latest Nintendo news and admire his library of video games.

Do you guys ever work directly with Nintendo and get suggestions from them for posts like this article.

It would be kinda neat if it were the case, like Nintendo sent you guys some kind of email saying, hey, explain this to the userbase so nobody gets worried.

I'm glad Game Freak is recruiting another developer to assist with developing the main games.

If BDSP and Legends Arceus do well (and I think they will), then I think we could see ILCA handle the smaller projects revolving around past regions such as traditional remakes and Let's Go games while Game Freak works on the bigger projects such as new generations and Legends games.

To my knowledge, this is the first time in the history of the Pokemon series that Game Freak hasn't handled a mainline remake!

Nintendo Life is a partner of the Gamer Network and has sister sites like Pure Xbox and Push Square.

Diamond and Pearl remakes are the worst of the worst!.

I can't believe they ruined my favorite set of Pokémon games...

they should at least change the overworld sprite and make it look like omega ruby and alpha sapphire models..

They can't possibly do a worse job of this than Game Freak have done with the entire franchise since the original Gen IV titles.

@Beatrice you must be joking, Diamond and Pearl are literally the best generation and culmination of what makes classic Pokémon great!.

until gamefreak decided to hand over the remakes to an even more incompetent developer than themselves and butchered one of the most anticipated remakes in Pokémon history..

@Letzg077 I agree that Gen IV is the best generation, but Game Freak have done literally nothing right since then - there is no developer more incompetent than they are?

@Beatrice I'm literally depressed because of this, like is this how they're gonna end the legacy of Diamond and Pearl.

I know there's legends Arceus and I like it overall but I feel like it's a different game and I wanna see the original DP remake end on a high note since we probably won't see another Sinnoh remake ever again..

The rest is looking great, but the overworld looks like a cheap mobile game rip-off, which is a massive shame
