Game Freak and the Pokemon Company made a brief presentation on September 29, where they shared new details about the upcoming expansion of Pokemon Sword and Shield, Crown Tundra. A new trailer was shown, detailing the game’s new locations and battles. It was finally confirmed when Pokemon fans could get their hands on the content on the front end for JRPG. Crown Tundra is set to release worldwide on October 22nd.
In the snowy Crown Tundra, players will work on an investigation team, exploring through mountains and caves. There will also be new Pokemon dens in these areas. Game Freak is using this new Pokemon Dance to bring back the fullness of legends from previous titles. In fact, the main storyline will be received in every legendary Pokemon Crown Tundra of the Pokemon series. Lugia, Geratina, Rykza and Curem can all be seen in the trailer.
The Crown Tundra expansion also adds to the Gallerian Star Tournament. Here, players can choose from a variety of trainers found in Pokemon Swords and Shields and team up with them to take part in some competitive battles. Players can battle with the newly added characters of the Isle Arf Armor and Crown Tundra expansion. The developer has hinted that players may see a new side of the character depending on how it is paired with it.
In celebration of the DLC, Game Freak is offering eight special pickaxes, each wearing Ash’s iconic hats from the animated series. The first Pikachu, which features a classic hat game in the first season of the anime, is now available by entering the code “P1KachUGET”. Subsequent codes will be revealed down the road.
The next DLC of Pokemon Sword and Shield, Crown Tundra, will be released on October 22 and will be part of the Expansion Pass, priced at 30. For more on Pokemon Sword and Shield, stick with us here on ShakeNews.
