Pokémon Sword and Shield Information to Release Next Month in CoroCoro - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 21 May 2019 / 872 Views

Not much information on the next core Pokémon RPGs, Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, have been released since it was announced nearly two months ago. 

The next issue of the Japanese magazine CoroCoro Ichiba will shore new information on the game. The issue of the magazine will release on June 21.

It is possible more information on the game will release earlier at E3 2019 the prior week.

Thanks Serebii.

Hopefully it will actually be new info and not just a reiteration of stuff that gets announced at E3.

I get the feeling we'll get more information elsewhere next month.

Let's hope that they announce more interesting details than the reveal trailer, because from the perspective of an absolute non Pokemon fan, this looks ridiculous. I beleive that I am not the only one who thought after the trailer : "ahh...So this is it, the huge thing that everybody is waiting and which will sell 25M+?.."

look Pokemon has been around for the last 20 years and if you're a "absolute non Pokemon fan" after all the TV shows, movies and games then this will very much probably not hook you in.... that said Pokemon as a franchise is probably one of the biggest on the planet up there with Disney's IPs and this game will sell a fuckton of systems and software.

It would be like if someone who didn't like Coke saw an advert in 2019 and thought to themselves "I don't get the hype" the product and advert aren't aimed at the person who doesn't like it.

No it is true, I can't get into it anymore today...But when I heard first about a new coming core Pokemon, I was expecting to be surprised really...I was expecting a huge open world with for example some online hosted game modes where many people could meet online and fight with each other to upgrade their stats...Or something very huge and epic like Zelda BW. And what we have at the end is something very limited like we could see on portable 6-8 years ago but in HD. this time.

I cringe so fucking hard when i hear this ''pokemon open world'' argument.

@Amnesia Back before Oblivion came out, I imagined Oblivion to be the most huge and massive sequel to Morrowwind. I imagined being able to go into parts of every Imperial province, ala going to Mournhold. I imagined NPCs with insanely long and complicated speech trees. I imagined being able to jump from rooftop to rooftop in massive cities the size of Vivec. When the game finally came out I was hugely dissapointed. Oblivion was a good game for its time, but I failed to see that, because it wasn't as good as the game I had come up with in my head. I feel you are doing the same thing with Sword/Shield. It will be a good game, but not some 10/10, all encompassing, grand masterpiece that you've been dreaming up for the last seven years.
