Nintendo announced in a just 7-minute Direct on the occasion of Pokémon-Day that the Nintendo Switch will receive two new Pokémon parts: Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. The game represents new parts of the series, which will send players to the Galar region with new Pokémon.
GameFreak wants to make use of the performance of the console, but the core of the game should remain the same. The goal will still be to complete the Pokédex and in the end become the champion of the region. The game will be released worldwide around the end of 2019 – an exact release date is not yet known.
