Pokémon Sword and Shield CoroCoro news expected June 21st, character customisation confirmed

Some more details about Sword and Shield seem to be coming out! Are you excited?

It may sound strange that we have not received much Pokémon Sword and Shield news lately, especially during this month. However, in a surprising twist of fate, CoroCoro has revealed an important date: June 21st. On that day, a new issue of the magazine will reveal some more information about the upcoming Generation VIII titles. It may though, be possible that we see this information earlier because this date is 10 days after E3.

However, what has been revealed is the fact that character customisation has been confirmed to return, much like the preceding main series titles barring Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. In Japan, a contest was held in which contestants could design a Pokémon-themed T-shirt. The winning design, a Gyarados-themed shirt, will be available in Sword and Shield as a customisation option for the player character.

Are you just as excited as we are? Especially considering we’ve had a drought of news? Or would you rather go in blind?
