Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! & Pokémon Let’s Go, Eevee! Come To Switch On November 16
Just announced and confirmed by The Pokémon company comes news that the next iterations of the franchise are coming to the Nintendo Switch. We had heard rumored names of these games and it turned out to be true! Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! both arrive on the Nintendo Switch on November 16, 2018. Watch the trailer and come back to read more!
As evidenced by the debut video, the Switch game takes some of the catching mechanics seen in Pokémon Go and translates them to the Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons. You can play single player or co-op on one Switch! In addition the Poké Ball Plus accessory will be made available at launch and the game can be played with it. But, in traditional over-the-top cuteness, you can bring the ball out with you on a walk and interact with it on the go.
Oh, speaking of all things “go”, you can even transfer your Pokémon from Pokémon Go into the new Switch games. You can send gifts to Pokémon Go users as well. Information is just trickling in, but for now we’re excited to see the game has a release date of November 16, 2018!
