Nintendo just recently streamed the Mario Maker 2 Nintendo Direct a few days ago, today the company surprised us with the announcement of an upcoming Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield Direct.

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield are expected to be released later this year, as they are part of Nintendos 2019 roaster. The announcement of this Direct makes fans wonder what will be shown at E3 next month in Los Angeles. As there are only few games left the big N has not talked about yet, such as Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Astral Chain, Animal Crossing Switch, Daemon X Machina, Luigi’s Mansion 3, and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening.

Fans are wondering if this opens up the opportunity to make an Animal Crossing Switch E3 presentation much like the Breath of the Wild E3 back in 2016, that exclusively focused on the Zelda title. Animal Crossing Switch was announced in September, 2018 and since then, no additional details have been revealed. If history is any indication the next installment of the beloved village simulator could celebrate its debut be at E3 2019. Animal Crossing New Leaf was shown off for the first time during the 2010 E3 as well.

We here at myPotatoGames are hopeful that Animal Crossing will be at E3 based on Nintendos recent investor call, in which was mentioned that the upcoming E3 will be the place the big N plans to talk about all Nintendo games coming in 2019, this also includes Animal Crossing Switch – if you missed the news, you can get caught up here.

We are keeping our fingers crossed for Isabelle, Tom Nook and all the other lovable as well as sometimes mildly annoying characters to make an appearance on our Nintendo Switch console.

You can watch the Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield Nintendo Direct below on June 5th at 6:00 A.M. PT / 9:00 A.M. ET.
