Just as everyone was wondering when news around the first Pokémon Sword and Shield expansion would arrive, Nintendo has confirmed more details will arrive on Tuesday 2nd June.

As posted on Pokémon Japan’s official Twitter account (although weirdly not on their other social channels), The Pokémon Company confirmed details on the Isle of Armor expansion will arrive on Tuesday 2nd June at 10pm JST (2pm BST/3pm CEST/ 9am EDT).

There’s no indication what this announcement will cover, although it’s likely there’ll be a release date for Isle of Armor considering a specific release date for June is yet to be announced. 

Could they possibly surprise release us all by launching it tomorrow? It’s a stretch but it would certainly be in spirit of Nintendo’s recent surprises like the Paper Mario announcement.

We also might get more information on new Pokémon possibly available in the expansion, along with other features we can get expect outside the Dojo.
