Pokémon Sword and Shield are meant for Nintendo Switch handheld mode, unlike Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee

During Nintendo’s latest financial results briefing, company president Shuntaro Furukawa said that Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are being developed to emphasize the fun of playing Nintendo Switch in handheld mode. His comments in full are as follows:

One pair of major titles being released this new fiscal year is Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. These new titles, first announced in a Pokémon Direct in February, have generated a huge response from consumers. Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, which were released in November of last year, are designed to highlight the fun of Nintendo Switch in TV mode, for example by waving the controller at the TV screen to capture Pokémon. Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield are being developed to emphasize the fun of playing Nintendo Switch in handheld mode. We want these games to be played not only by longtime Pokémon fans, but also by consumers whose first encounter with the series was on a dedicated video game platform with Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!.
