The new games were announced during the Nintendo Direct presentation and revealed some interesting information about the upcoming Nintendo Switch-exclusive games.

These games will be new entries in the RPG Pokémon series. And it is the greatest Pokémon experience yet.

The new Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games look pretty cute with Trainers living in a new area called the Galar Region. This new region was described by the new Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield games’ director, Shigeru Ohmari, as “an expansive region with idyllic countrysides, icy mountain regions, and big cities.”

The cities in the new Galar Region have brand new 8th-Gen Pokémon to catch, Pokémon gyms to beat and of course the Pokémon League to take on to be the very best.
