With the TCG as popular as it’s ever been, The Pokémon Trading Card Game Live beta is extending its reach from Canada to multiple Scandanavian countries. While that still leaves those of us in the U.S.A and the rest of Europe in the dark as to whether we might be playing cards with Pikachus, it does mean that we’re closer than ever to a full launch.
This new turn for the Pokémon Trading Card Game Live beta makes it available to play for certain users in Denmark, Finland, The Netherlands, and Norway, and Sweden. With the title available for mobile, Mac, and PC, with cross-platform play across all devices, there’s no shortage of ways for those in the select regions to jump on and play a few rounds of the classic card game.
The impending release of The Pokémon Company’s new sim does mean that the sun is setting on the Pokémon Trading Card Online app. Fortunately, those who participate in the PGTCGL beta can access both games, and won’t lose all their progress in the old TCG portal until it goes offline worldwide.
When is The Pokémon Trading Card Game Live release date?
Despite the announcement of the beta test, we still have no word on a release date for the full version of the Pokémon Trading Card Game Live. The game was initially pegged for a 2021 release, but The Pokémon company pushed it back late last year in an effort to “provide Trainers with a more polished experience”. With any luck, we’ll get some concrete news on a launch date on the other side of the extended beta period.
That’s all we know about the Pokémon Trading Card Game Live beta launch so far, but be sure to check back later this month to see what we’ve learned from the test period. We’re planning extensive coverage for the eventual release, so it might even be a good idea to bookmark us. Until then, why not keep your card game skills fresh with our Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel guide.
