There is also a demo available right now, that you can play the first few levels of the game, and all data will be carried over to the full game if you so choose to purchase.
This was an unexpected announcement indeed, we were expecting it to be fully focused on Pokémon Sword/Shield and Pokémon Home, but here at DGR, we are welcome to a pleasant surprise.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX was not the only thing revealed, Pokémon Sword/Shield are getting expansion passes that have two whole new areas to explore, with new Pokémon to find that are not in the base game. But not just new Pokémon, you are also getting a few new rivals to boot. As well as all that, Pokémon Home is coming in February.
