Due to release on November 16 2018 exclusively on Nintendo Switch, Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee is bringing Kanto back to life. To celebrate the launch of the remake, Nintendo has announced a special edition Pokemon Let’s Go Switch. The special edition Switch console will launch on the same day as the game, November 16 2018, and comes pre-installed with a digital version of Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu or Eevee. What is the special edition console? Where can we buy it? All is revealed below, Pokemon fans.
Pokemon Let’s Go Switch: What is it?
The snazzy special edition Pokemon Let’s Go Switch is a sight to behold. Not only does the console come with a copy of the remake pre-installed, but it looks like a Pokemon fan’s dream machine. The console comes with a pair of yellow and light brown Joy-Cons, the Poke Ball Plus, and a copy of the game. To make things better, the special edition Switch has Pikachu and Eevee emblazoned on the front of the dock (with Joy-Con color appropriate placement), and silhouettes of each ‘Mon on the back of the console itself.
Pokemon Let’s Go Switch: Where to Buy
There will be two Pokemon Let’s Go Switch bundles available for purchase. Both look the same, but there is a key difference: One comes with Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu pre-installed, and the other comes with Eevee. As of writing, we cannot pre-order either bundle, but a safe bet to buy them will be heading to the official Nintendo Online Store. This is no shop exclusive item. Another good bet will be the official page of the game. If you’re after the slick new Switch design, keep your eyes on those pages and it’s sure to become available for pre-order any time soon. Bear in mind that the US version will set you back $399.99.
