Return to the Kanto region and experience a classic Pokémon journey in a whole new way. Nintendo and the Pokémon Company revealled today that there are two new Pokémon games coming to the Nintendo Switch this year. While the logos and names leaked earlier in the month, the news was made official today.
The pair of games are based on the special Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition game for the GameBoy which was originally released in 1998. The games are remade with the same visual style of the latest 3DS games Sun and Moon.
The game looks like it can be played with a single joycon and catching Pokémon is done with the same motion swing mechanic as in mobile game Pokémon GO. Not only that but the game will be compatable with the mobile game and allow trainers to transfer Pokémon between the new Nintendo Switch titles and Pokémon GO.
Also during the video presentation was displayed multiplayer allowing two trainers to play at once using a Joy-Con each. A special PokeBallPlus will also be released which will be compatable with Pokémon GO and can be used as a Joy-Con for the Nintendo Switch games.
Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! will be released on the Nintendo Switch on November 16th.
It was also announced that there is also a brand new mainline Pokémon RPG in development for the second half of 2019.
