Nintendo’s latest Pokémon Direct happened overnight, and it delivered some exciting news for Pokéfans.
The biggest news was the announcement of an expansion pass for Pokémon Sword/Pokémon Shield.
This will give access to two chunks of DLC through the year. The Isle of Armour is planned to drop before June finishes up, while The Crown Tundra is due before year’s end. They’ll both add new open areas, along with some 200 new and familiar creatures to collect.
In other exciting news, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX is dropping on March 6. It’s a conversion of the pair of Nintendo DS games from 2006. A demo is coming to the eShop today.
If your Pokémon exploration extends to Pokémon Go, you may be pleased to know about the arrival of the paid service Pokémon Home. This app for Switch and mobile will allow the transfer of Go captures into Sword/Shield, while also serving as a general hub for your Pokécollection from those games as well as Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu, Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee and Pokémon Bank. It’s due next month, with pricing to be confirmed.
