Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield announced

Nintendo has just announced Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield at the Pokemon focused Nintendo Direct. This game is the 8th-generation title, taking place in a brand new region.

The games take place in the Galar region, which seems to be based off Britain. Sword and Shield are directed by Shigeru Ohmori, who we previously predicted could be directing the new games back in November. Ohmori is known for directing Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and Pokemon Sun and Moon.

Check out the first footage below:

Below are the three new starters Grookey, Scorbunny and Sobble:
