The announcement comes a week prior to E3 and hopefully we will get more information leading into E3 and during about this Pokemon game. As of now we only know what the game will be based in the Galar region and that players will be able to select their starter Pokemon from new Grass, Fire, and Water-type.
This new game will also feature a ton of new Pokemon as well as the popular ones from the past generation giving players a wide variety to capture and train.
Nintendo’s E3 will not only focus on Pokemon Sword and Shield but also a ton of other games that they are developing.
We will update this after the Direct announcement and let you all know what was announced and what can be expected from the game.
Pokemon Sword and Shield will be a Nintendo Switch exclusive title, the release dates have yet to be confirmed.
