Once we performed the E3 2018 demo of Pokémon: Let’s Go! — the franchise’s first unique Nintendo Swap video games — we got here away feeling optimistic concerning the newcomer-friendly pair. Their newest trailer provides us extra hope that Let’s Go! is as a lot for nostalgic followers as it’s Pokémon newbies, as a result of Pikachu Model and Eevee Model appear to be the cutest collection reinventions ever.
We get all of this and extra within the trailer above: trainers using round an exquisite, absolutely 3D model of the Kanto area; bonding with Eevee and Pikachu; and getting rides out of your larger Pokémon greatest mates. It’s all lovely and, frankly, a convincing tackle what we’d hope for a Pokémon journey to be on console.
The child-friendly aesthetic means we get tons of vivid colours and friendlier designs for Professor Oak, together with gymnasium leaders like Brock and Misty. There’s even a “pleasant rival.” Socializing is a big a part of the sport, with full cooperative play, coach battles and buying and selling all included. At the same time as they keep the aggressive spirit of Pokémon, although, the Let’s Go! video games nonetheless package deal every thing inside an lovely, inviting world.
Most significantly, you’ll be able to costume up each your participant and your major companion Pokémon. Need Pikachu to put on a safari outfit? Heck yeah, you bought it. Need Eevee to have just a little bowtie? Carried out. The customizable hairstyles for Pikachu and Eevee are rather less, uh, satisfying, however these coach children are doing their greatest.
The Japanese model of the trailer has much more pure, Pokémon friendship. Watch that beneath.
