Pokémon Sword & Shield

Pokémon Sword & Shield are getting closer and closer, currently just over two weeks away. The games are now live for preorders on the European eShop. As a bonus, preordering either title through that platform will net you a free steelbook case. If you are ready to buy right now, the tweet below from Nintendo of Europe (appropriately sporting a terrified Luigi avatar) has links to each eShop page.

What do you think of the Pokémon Sword & Shield steelbook designs? I am pretty drawn to the fading color on the bottom of each case, as well as the clean-looking emblem designs on the back. I wish that those cases were only a simple eShop preorder away in America, but alas, that is not the…case (get it?).

Speaking of preorders, are you excited for Pokémon Sword & Shieldor have the game’s numerous controversies put you off? Personally, I do not care much for the National Dex in the first place, and the games look quite different than the last Pokémon game I played, OmegaRuby. I am really interested in checking out the Wild Area, which appears to be the exact sort of experience I dreamt of when we first learned that Pokémon would be landing on Switch.
