The Pokémon Company International and Game Freak have released a new Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield trailer that heralds a new era for the brand.

This sees pocket monster sprites from previous generations gather around four players, whose Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, and Nintendo 3DS transform into Nintendo Switch consoles – turning the Pokémon that rush to their side into high-definition models.

In Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, you will choose between three starter Pokémon – Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble – before having the chance to explore the Galar region – with its idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forests, and craggy, snow-covered mountains. Challenging the Gyms in the region, you will once again look to become Champion.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on November 15th.
