Pokemon Sword and Shield Will Get New Info at World Hobby Fair

The World Hobby Fair Summer '19 will be host to plenty of video game news, including more info on Pokemon Sword and Shield.

According to a report from a Twitter account run by Gaming INTEL, new information for Pokemon Sword and Shield will be revealed at the World Hobby Fair Summer ’19 in Japan, which will run this year from June 29th to the 30th:


Considering the wealth of information that was already shared during the E3 Nintendo Direct, it’ll be interesting to see what else Pokemon Company and Gamefreak could possibly reveal during the event.

For those not aware, the World Hobby Fair is an event held by Shogakukan that sponsors video games and toys in Japan. The booths at the fair contain toys and video games from many famous companies such as Shogakukan, Nintendo, Bandai, and Capcom. So the chances of seeing some new information concerning the upcoming title announced there is pretty high. As to the quality or magnitude of said information? That will remain to be seen.

We already know of the new Dynamax mechanic — in which a Pokemon increases in both size and strength –, Max Raids, the massive Wild Area, Pokemon battles taking place in giant stadiums, and the new legendary wolf Pokemon. The E3 Nintendo Direct also revealed the new Water type Gym Leader, Poke Ball capabilities, and an upcoming demo.

Pokemon Sword and Shield will be released for Nintendo Switch on November 15th. Meanwhile check out a write-up from one of our DualShockers own, in which he claims this will be the Pokemon title to reignite his passion for the series, which totes that “…we may have another classic generation on our hands.” You can preorder Sword here and Shield here.
