I don't know if you guys know this or not, but Tatsumi Kimishima's putting on a presentation in Kyoto right now. They're announcing a bunch of (kinda-lame) stuff and so I decided to make this blog. Also I have no idea where this is being streamed so all my news comes from second-hand sources ala Twitter.
2016 Nintendo Directs will be different - This was revealed earlier today, but I missed this.

Tune in on June 5 at 6 a.m. PT for roughly 15 minutes of new information on #PokemonSwordShield for #NintendoSwitch in a livestreamed Pokémon Direct presentation.
The Pokémon Company will also livestream a "Pokémon Business Strategy presentation". While they haven't said anything about what this presentation will include, only that it will "cover multiple topics of interest to Pokémon fans", it will probably detail ideas regarding the expansion and evolution of the Pokémon brand as a whole. It probably won't include Sword and Shield details, especially since there's a Direct for that only a few days later, but it may be worth checking out if you're interested (and can speak Japanese). They'll be livestreaming it here when it airs 01:00 UTC on M…
