Nintendo Announces Two New Pokemon Games for Switch

After we reported last week about rumors of two new Pokémon titles, Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu, and Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee, Nintendo has officially unveiled the games, and they’re something else. The games will act as a remake of Pokémon Yellow, sending players back to the Kanto region to collect the original 151 Pokemon.

In addition, the game will have full Pokémon GO functionality, with players being able to move Pokémon from game-to-game. Lastly, players will be able to use the new Poke-Ball Plus controller to catch them all, as well. The controller will allow players to take the game with them, level them with steps, and light up and make noises thanks to a gyroscope inside the controller itself. Lastly, the game will feature drop-in and drop-out Co-Op for the first time in the series itself. Check out the trailer above and let us know what you think!
