Among all the other new reveals of Pokemon, characters, and features of the Galar region coming out of today’s Direct, we got something every game needs — a release date! While it was likely to fall into this window, we now have full confirmation that Pokemon Sword & Shield will launch on November 15th this year.

The reveal comes alongside the game’s box art, featuring new Legendaries, Zacian and Zamazenta, and the news that a double pack will be launched that features both games together. Expect more information on that, as well as plenty more of what to expect from Sword & Shield, in the coming months.
