Pokémon Sword and Shield

Next month, fans who check out the FirstLook Festival in Utrecht (Netherlands) will be able to try out the demo for Pokémon Sword and Shield. Of course, it’s the same demo that has already been playable at various events around the world, nothing really new sadly. The FirstLook Festival takes place from October 5th to October 6th.

Pokémon Sword and Shield (Switch) comes out on November 15th worldwide.
