Here’s how to watch today’s Pokemon Sword and Shield Nintendo Direct

Nintendo has announced it will hold a special direct presentation later today where it will reveal all-new details for Pokemon Sword and Shield.

Set to launch later this year exclusively for Nintendo Switch, we’re surprised that Nintendo is revealing so much for Sword and Shield ahead of E3 2019.

Perhaps this means we’re going to be treated with a barrage of information on Animal Crossing Switch at next week’s show? Either way, consider us excited.
