Here’s when you can play Pokémon Sword and Shield

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, developer Game Freak’s first new game for Nintendo’s latest console, will be released on Nov. 15 for Nintendo Switch. There’s a lot of anticipation — and controversy — ahead of its release date. Sword and Shield largely follow tradition as a Pokémon franchise game, but add new elements that make it fresh and open.

We’ve known for some time that it’s out on Nov. 15, but a Nintendo spokesperson told Polygon the game will go online right at midnight “in all local time zones.” No matter where you’re located, Sword and Shield will be available right when the clock strikes midnight in your area.
