Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon Let’s Go, Eevee! Announced for Nintendo Switch May 29, 2018

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

Gamers have been speculating about what kind of mainstream Pokémon games would be coming to the Nintendo Switch since the console was announced. Over the past few weeks, rumors began to circulate online that Pikachu and Eevee would be the mascots of the next major games for the Nintendo Switch. Today, the rumors turned out to be true.

Did you get all that? We will be getting all-new Kanto remakes in full HD on the Nintendo Switch! Players will be able to play with just one joy-con controller or get help from a second player using the other joy-con! Tons of classic GEN1 Pokémon including Mewtwo, Bulbasaur, Pidgey and Clefairy will appear in the game.

Capturing Pokémon will use the joy-con’s motion control gestures but look similar to how they work in Pokémon Go. There will be a dedicated Pokeball Plus accessory players will be able to connect to their Nintendo Switch. Like a Wiimote, it’s filled with gyroscopes and motion detectors. You’ll be able to use them to assist in catching ’em all. Or you’ll be able to transfer a Pokémon to it from your game and take the Pokéball Plus on the go!

Finally, Pokémon Go players will be able to transfer Pokémon caught in Pokémon Go to the Nintendo Switch, and receive in-game presents from the Switch games!

Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee are coming to the Nintendo Switch November 16th, 2018. The Pokeball Plus accessory will also be released on that day.
