New Pokémon Sword & Shield Direct Confirmed for June 5th

Avid explorers of the world of Pokémon will be thrilled with what the official Nintendo of America Twitter account announced today.

Pokémon-themed Nintendo Direct will be taking place on June 5th at 6:00 a.m. PT / 9:00 a.m. ET / 2:00 p.m. BST, based on a tweet from Nintendo of America. It comes right off the heels of a previous Super Mario Maker 2-themed Nintendo Direct that was shown on May 15th. This might infer that Nintendo wanted to broadcast information on a few games that might not have such coverage during its upcoming E3 presentation.

Its June 5th airing date is less than a week from Nintendo’s E3 presentation, scheduled for June 11th at 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET / 5:00 p.m. BST. With information so close in proximity, it’s hard to assume much more info on the upcoming games will be shown at their E3 event. Fans of Pokémon may feel thankful for the standalone coverage, nonetheless.

Pokémon Sword & Shield is scheduled to release sometime in 2019.
