Nintendo has debuted a launch film for its highly anticipated new Switch game, Pokémon Sword and Shield. Working with Leo Burnett – Chicago and Framestore Pictures, service production company - LS Productions - took the high-profile VFX shoot to the Cotswolds.
The spot sees a group of young Pokémon hunters playing together on the new game suddenly encounter the emergence of the green monkey, “Grookey” - followed by two other Pokémon characters - into their real-life surroundings.
The crew, who were sourced predominantly from the north of England, received praise from others on set for their professional approach and ability to work deftly on a demanding project.
