After Luigi's Mansion 3, the next major Switch title arriving is Pokémon Sword and Shield in the middle of November. It's expected to be the biggest Pokémon game ever (in more ways than one) – with Dynamaxing, Gigantamaxing, and a brand new region featuring idyllic countryside, contemporary cities, thick forests, and snow-covered mountains.

While we've seen a sizable chunk of the game already in multiple presentations, our lovely video producer Alex Olney has now had a chance to go hands-on with the nex entries for 90 minutes and share his thoughts. To be precise, he's played the opening segment, so all of his impressions are based on this part of the game in particular. Spoiler alert: he's excited and even thinks some parts of the game are glorious.
