Pokémon Brilliant Diamond And Shining Pearl Use Unity Engine

Upcoming remakes of the 2006 RPGs will run on the Unity game engine, new data mine reveals.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl won’t be released for almost two weeks. However, as the games come close to their release, leaks have started spreading online, as some players have already received access to them. As such, some mined data from within the games has also revealed that Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl use the notable cross-platform game engine, Unity.

Since the announcement of the remakes in February, players have been eagerly waiting for any news regarding Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and it seems like the wait is coming to an end, thanks to Kurt, as more and more leaks start to arise each day. Some intriguing information that has emerged recently suggests that the games have been developed using Unity instead of the proprietary game engine used for the 2019 instalment to the Pokémon franchise, Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Since the release of the Nintendo Switch in 2017, Unity Technologies and Nintendo have been working cohesively to bring many games to the console which may have not been likely without the support for Unity. It’s obvious that Nintendo wants to use Unity exclusively for upcoming releases, as it has with Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

So, what exactly do the games running on Unity mean for players? While Unity does receive some criticism from many players, unlike other game engines, it does not have any obfuscations, which means that ROM edits and tweaks to some features of the games won’t be an issue for those that like to mess around with the code.

After physical copies of the games were released in some countries way ahead of their scheduled release, Nintendo has been trying to remove any footage or leak regarding the games. However, it doesn’t seem to be working, as more and more mined data gets released every day. Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl is scheduled to release on 19th November.
