The Pokémon Company has called off its Japanese launch event for Pokémon Sword and Shield, due to take next place in Tokyo next week.
Junichi Masuda and Shigeru Ohmori, the series' veteran lead producer and its game director, were both due to make an appearance.
In a statement apologising for the event's cancellation, The Pokémon Company simply blamed "operational reasons".
