Pokemon Sword and Shield Direct Set for June 5

The official Pokemon Twitter account has announced an upcoming Nintendo Direct focused purely on Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.

Broadcasting will begin on June 5th at 6:00 a.m. PT / 9:00 a.m. ET via YouTube and the official Nintendo website (though this will merely host the YouTube stream)

While this direct will occur before E3 2019 (June 11th to June 13th) many livestreams and broadcasts will be running through June 9th and June 10th. The Nintendo Direct E3 will occur on June 11th, in addition to tournaments on June 8th for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Splatoon 2.

In case you missed it a recent contest around the games has gone awry, with a t-shirt designing contest winner being disqualified and the shirts removed from the game.

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield will launch sometime this year, for Nintendo Switch.
