Game Freak has revealed its Pokémon role-playing game Pokémon Sword and Shield. The game is a Nintendo Switch exclusive title.


The new game will introduce the new Galar region to the world of Pokémon. The region is said to be expansive with many environments: idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forests, and craggy, snow-covered mountains.

Players will start their adventure by choosing one of three Pokémon: Grookey, Scorbunny and Sobble.

The new game is currently being in development at Game Freak. The Japanese studio is known for its involvement in the development of several popular Pokémon titles for the Nintendo Gameboy handheld console, including Pokémon Red and Blue and Pokémon Gold and Silver.

Pokémon Sword and Shield is scheduled to release later this year exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
