“Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!” and “Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!” are sort of the exact same video game, and sort of not the exact same video game. One stars Pikachu, the other stars Eevee. In every other method, as far as we understand up until now, they equal.

However what are they? Here’s how Nintendo puts it:

“Influenced by ‘Pokémon Yellow,’ which was initially launched in Japan on Nintendo’s Video game Young boy in 1998, these 2 brand-new titles include a number of the user-friendly gameplay functions provided to gamers in the extremely popular ‘Pokémon Go’ and are created for gamers taking their primary steps into the Pokémon computer game world.”

Provided the motivation, both video games are embeded in the Kanto area, the area of the initial Video game Young boy video games. Rather of random encounters with hidden Pokémon, you’ll really see the animals living their lives. And rather of picking a Pokéball and pressing a button to capture Pokémon, you can snap your controller, the exact same method you would swipe your finger in “Pokémon Go.” There’s likewise a Pokéball controller (offered individually) that enables you to simulate the movement of tossing a ball to catch a Pokémon.

That the video games will recognize to “Pokémon Go” gamers is no error.

Countless individuals experienced Pokémon for the very first time with the extremely popular mobile video game, so it makes good sense to reduce those brand-new gamers in with familiar features. In the exact same vein, the video games will use interoperability with “Pokémon Go,” along with two-player cooperative action.
