Nintendo Switch


 

There’s a new look for the Nintendo Switch, and it’s entirely themed around the upcoming new Pokémon games.

Styled after Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, the new console design sports a bright yellow Pikachu and matching bright yellow Joy-Con on the right, and a light tan Eevee and matching Joy-Con on the right. The back of the console has silhouettes of both Pokémon in a darker black. The Joy-Con grips complete the color scheme for their respective Pokémon, adding a brown stripe to the yellow right Joy-Con and a cream-colored highlight to the tan left Joy-Con.

To be clear, while there are technically two bundles, one for Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and one for Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, there’s only one console design. No matter which bundle you’ll get, you’ll have one Pikachu and one Eevee Joy-Con and both Pokémon on the console, not a Pikachu-exclusive and Eevee-exclusive pack. The choice of bundles only determines which game you’ll get inside.

These bundles also come with the Poké Ball Plus peripheral, which works with Pokémon Go, lets you take your Pokémon for a walk in real life, and allows you to mime throwing a Pokéball at the screen to catch the wild critters.

Because of this added accessory, the bundle costs a bit more than the standard Nintendo Switch bundles. It sells for $400, only slightly under the cost of buying the game and accessory separately, but the exclusive Joy-Con colors and console design make up for the extra price.

The bundle will arrive in stores on November 16th, the same day the games release.
