Hey, I'm finally allowed to announce this: I was asked to compose a track for Pokémon Sword & Shield! It's a huge honor to be asked to be part of something like this. I hope you enjoy hearing it when the game comes out! pic.twitter.com/VmroEgJWqI— tobyfox (@tobyfox) November 1, 2019
The upcoming Pokemon games will be set in the Galar region, a new area of the Pokemon world that was inspired by the British Isles. Pokemon Sword and Shield will feature new Pokemon like Sobble, a Water-type lizard that's continuously anxious all the time, and Yamper, an Electric-type corgi. The game will also feature multiple new mechanics like Dynamaxing, which will turn your Pokemon into 100 foot tall behemoths for a limited amount of time. Some Pokemon can also Gigantamax, which transforms their body into a new gargantuan form and gives them access to special moves. The game will also feature Max Raids, which allow up to four players to battle against a Dynamax Pokemon in epic battles.
Pokemon Sword and Shield will be released on November 15th.
