Without a doubt, a bevy of gamers were looking forward to a Pokemon reveal of some sort during Nintendo's E3 2018 press conference, as players had been excited to finally learn some more about what's to come for the franchise with titles like Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee. Thankfully, the studio has now given folks an additional bit of insight into what more can be expected from the upcoming titles for Switch, as Reggie Fils-Aime explained some of what's to come.
During the Nintendo Direct E3 presser, Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee for Switch had some of its details discussed while Fils-Aime spoke over footage of the player character trainer roaming throughout the titles' in-game worlds. Starting at about the 4:38 mark in the video below, Pokemon fans can catch up on all that has been unveiled thus far, such as gameplay of the Kanto region, where players' partners of either Pikachu or Eevee are always with them, as the series offers the first instance of being able to catch Pokemon together at the same time.
What's more is that Fils-Aime even went so far as to confirm that the Pokeball Plus JoyCon controller for the Nintendo Switch will offer up an exclusive Mew with a purchase of Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee. Without a doubt, this will be a huge incentive for many Pokemon fans to splurge on the fresh peripheral, as it will bring an added way for fans to play the forthcoming games.
Of course, the purchase of the Pokeball Plus JoyCon will set players back a few coins in order to enjoy Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let's Go Eevee with added features, as the Pokeball Plus Edition of the titles will reportedly contain the Switch releases and the controller for $100. So, all things considered, it will be interesting to see how many fans go on to purchase the game along with the peripheral at launch.
Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee release on November 16, 2018 exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.
