Pokemon Sword & Shield Launch Event Cancelled

Pokemon Sword and Shield were supposed to have a Japanese launch event next week but that will not be happening now.

The original plan was supposed to include an appearance by lead producer Junichi Masuda and game director Shigeru Ohmori but The Pokemon Company has now cited “operation reason” for them canceling the event.

While the new game will bring in some interesting new features, there will also be some features that will be taken out and the fans are not too happy about that. Some fans were not too happy that the game will not be getting a National Pokedex this time. Others were also not too happy that some Pokemons will not be returning to the game so we can see why fans were so upset when the event was also canceled.

Of course, there is nothing we can do now but wait for the game to arrive.
