This morning, Nintendo hosted a 30-minute Nintendo Direct Mini presentation. (Apparently, those are a thing now, but we aren’t complaining.) While it was “mini” in name, the video presentation was packed with exciting updates and news for the Nintendo Switch systems.
Nintendo and Pokémon also offered up new info for the upcoming Sword and Shield expansion passes. These passes will expand the Galar Region to include the Isle of Armor and the frozen Crown Tundra. Trainers can also gather and train at a new dojo in the Isle of Armor, where they will receive the Legendary Pokémon Kubfu from the dojo master, Mustard. Through training with Kubfu, players will get permission to challenge the Towers of Two Fists. The first portion of the expansion pass is set to drop by the end of June. However, as Nintendo noted at the beginning of its presentation, all game release dates are subject to change due to COVID-19.
