Pokemon Sword and Shield is bringing in a number of new elements to the long-running franchise, and how fans receive them could lead to changes in the future. In an interview with Pokemon.com, Game Director Shigeru Ohmori talks about the newly-implemented free camera, and interest in seeing how fans like it.
We always want to come up with new surprises for our players with each new Pokémon game. This is our first time introducing free camera movement in the series, so we're excited to see how our players will respond to it once they get their hands on the games. We'll think about what we want to do in the future based on those reactions.
