Today’s Pokémon Direct just wrapped up, and as expected Game Freak unveiled a new generation of Pokémon games. Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are headed to Nintendo Switch later this year. The twin games take place in the brand new Galar region, which appears to be a sizable region that you can explore with a free camera and a third-person perspective.
In the Galar region, you’ll have the choice of Grookey (grass), Scorbunny (fire), and Sobble (water) as your first Pokémon companion. Game Freak says they’re aiming to make this the greatest Pokemon experience yet by challenging themselves to do new things, while still staying true to what makes Pokémon special. Check out the trailer and get hyped!
