Nintendo Announces Special Edition Pokemon Switch Hardware


To coincide with the release of Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! this fall, Nintendo will release limited edition Switch hardware bundles on the same day the new games are released, November 16.

Buyers will have a choice between Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Let’s Go, Eevee! coming pre-installed, but both versions will have identical Switch hardware featuring images of both Pikachu and Eevee etched on the back, with new brown and yellow Joy-Cons to complete the ensemble. Both Pokemon will also be featured on the Switch dock that comes in the bundle, which also contains a Poke Ball Plus controller.


Unless I’m mistaken, this is the first special edition Switch hardware that features cosmetic changes to the actual console and not just different-colored Joy-Cons. With this being the case, these bundles are sure to be snatched up quick, so get a pre-order in ASAP if you want one!

Nintendo has yet to reveal pricing details for the Switch bundles.
