Pokémon Sword and Shield Director Visits New Town in Galar
The Pokémon Company is not in attendance at this year’s Gamescom, but Pokemon Sword and Shield director Shigeru Ohmori released a video package with some additional footage for the upcoming Nintendo Switch title. The two-minute video displays an unnamed town in the Galar region, showing locations such as the Pokémon Research Lab, Railway Station, Pokémon Center, Grocery Store, and Boutique Shop.

A physical double-pack with both versions comes packaged with a SteelBook; pre-ordering the double-pack also provides a code for two Dynamax Pokémon players can fight and capture much sooner than normally encountered.
