Nintendo has announced two limited edition Nintendo Switch console bundles for Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon Let’s Go, Eevee!.
It’s expensive being a Pokémon fan. As well as the pricey Poké Ball Plus controller that accompanies Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon Let’s Go, Eevee!, there are also two new Nintendo Switch hardware bundles on the way.
The limited edition bundles include a Nintendo Switch console adorned with silhouettes of Pikachu and Eevee, two themed Joy-Con, a Pikachu and Eevee branded Switch dock, a Poké Ball Plus controller, and a pre-installed copy of the game.
It’s an impressive package, and really rather beautiful. You can see more in the new hardware reveal trailer.
Nintendo has also released some new details about the game, including Secret Techniques that can be used to overcome obstacles. These techniques are exclusive to the Pikachu and Eevee partner Pokémon, and include flying, water travel, and tree chopping abilities. Players can also improve their relationship with their partner Pokémon by petting and playing with them via an option on the main menu.
The limited edition hardware bundles will be released alongside Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! on November 16, 2018.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
