There is plenty of excitement circulating throughout the Pokemon community with the highly anticipated games of Sword and Shield set to be released this week. Trainers from across the world are waiting for the exact release time for when they will be able to boot up their Nintendo Switches and experience the latest chapters in the legendary franchise. Fortunately, we have everything you need to know about the release time for these two particular titles covered.
Pokemon Sword and Shield Release Time
Individuals will be able to load up and enjoy these new worlds at midnight local time on November 15th. That means whenever it strikes midnight in your region, you will have seen the official release period arrive and allow you to enjoy these games as much as you want. We recommend pre-loading whichever of the two games you purchased before they become available. Doing so will allow you to jump in when the release time passes immediately, and the games become available.
That way, you will not have to wait for your title to download and install before being able to pick your starter and heading off on the beginning of your newest adventure in the popular video game universe.
