A few weeks ago, leaks started coming out for the Pokémon games that Nintendo promised would be coming this year, and indeed, those leaks seemed to be a little out of left field. Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee were the rumoured names, and there was plenty of talk about how the two games would feature cross-platform integration with Pokémon GO. Well, as it turns out, those rumours were right on the money, and the actual product looks bloody awesome.

Today, Nintendo announced Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Pokémon Let’s Go Eevee, due out for a worldwide release on 16th November. These games will take players back to the Kanto region for a new adventure that Junichi Masuda says is being built on the formula of Pokemon Yellow, and will feature only the original 151 Pokémon. However, rather than Squirtle, Bulbasaur, or Charmander, your starter will be either an Eevee or a Pikachu that will follow you around outside the Pokéball. Gameplay looks like it will be a cross between the main series and Pokémon GO, and it will feature direct connectivity with the AR game that allows one to trade Pokémon back and forth between games.
