TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan’s Nintendo Co Ltd said on Wednesday that it will release two Pokemon role-playing titles for its Switch console, “Pokemon Sword” and “Pokemon Shield”, worldwide in late 2019.
In January the gaming company slashed its full year sales forecast for its hybrid home-portable console. Last week it announced a share buyback for the first time since 2014.
