Release Window for POKEMON SHIELD and POKEMON SWORD Reportedly Leaked

I’m a little surprised at how quiet Nintendo has been about Pokémon Shield and Pokémon Sword since they were announced in February. I was expecting at least some kind of follow-up by now. While many fans are expecting E3 to be a feast of reveals, some leaks have popped up with some interesting information. The most important one being a rumored release date of somewhere between November 15-20. That is actually a solid guess as Pokémon games in the past have come out around that same time in the past, and it covers Tuesday and Friday which are the two most common days for big game releases.

Another big part of the leak is that fans will supposedly get a new trailer for the games on May 10. Here’s the full leaked schedule of events:

  • May 10: New trailer

  • May 15: Corocoro reveal of the box art

  • June 27 – A panel at Salt Lake City Comic Con

  • July 10 – Gen 8 Funko Pops

  • July 20 – A panel at San Diego Comic Con

  • August 29 – Panel at a PAX

  • September 12 to 14 – Tokyo Game Show

  • September 15 – More reveals from Corocoro magazine

  • October 4 – New York Comic Con and a promotional tour

  • October 11 – More promotional tours, one in Europe and the other in one of the Americas

  • October 12 – Panel at PAX Australia and an Australian promotional tour

  • November 2 – Nintendo and Game Freak event at EGX Berlin

  • November 15 to 20 – Pokemon Sword and Shield Release Date

As this is a leak, it is very important to take it with a giant grain of salt. This is not official information and could be wrong. That being said, you can bet I’ll be waiting impatiently for May 10’s new trailer!
