Pokémon Nintendo Direct Date Revealed, “Exciting Updates” Soon
Following the release of several big Pokémon projects such as the recent Detective Pikachu movie, yet another is looking to grace our Nintendo Switch later this year as Pokémon Sword and Shield. The game’s first reveal teased a plentiful location and an adorable array of starters, but more information has now been teased for a new Nintendo Direct event, one that’s scheduled to arrive pretty soon.
Nintendo reveals that this special Pokémon-themed Direct is set to land next week on June 5th, the presentation scheduled to begin at 6 a.m. PT (8 a.m. CT / 9 a.m. ET). The livestream teases a showcase of “roughly 15-minutes of new information” about Sword and Shield, though specifics are currently up in the air to anyone that isn’t a psychic-type.

While this one showcase would be enough for most fans to hold tightly to hype, a second reveal has also been announced to happen in the meantime. Going live May 28th, an all-new Pokémon Press Conference is swooping in to deliver even more news to fans, confirming some “exciting updates” for the presentation and teasing “you know what that means.” We’ll find out what that’s all about tomorrow (at the time of writing) at 6 p.m. (8 p.m. CT / 9 p.m. ET).
