Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield announced for Nintendo Switch
During its 7 minute Direct presentation last night Nintendo took the wraps off the 8th generation of Pokemon games – Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. While details were scarce we did get a look at the game in action, the new region and the new starters.
The game is set in the Galar Region which has a very industrial revolution era look to it. Here’s the full map.
The new starters were revealed to be the Chimp Pokemon Grookey, a Rabbit Pokemon called Scorbunny and a Water-lizard called Sobble.
Nintendo confirmed the game will be released worldwide in late 2019.
