Nintendo announces three new Pokémon games including Pokémon Let's Go on Switch

Pokémon Let's Go Eevee/Pikachu, Pokémon Quest and another new game are coming to Switch!

During a Pokémon conference last night,  Nintendo announced three new Pokémon games for Switch and Mobile including a core title called Pokémon Let's Go.

First up we have Pokémon Quest, a spin-off action-RPG game set in on blocky islands. Nintendo revealed the surprise game as a simple release focussed on training up your Pokémon and exploring the island. Grouping your blocky critters together into teams of three, the Pokémon will move on their own but you can direct their attacks to progress by swiping icons on the touch screen. Pokémon Quest launches today for free on Switch and Mobile!

Nintendo also announced a fully functional Pokéball controller for the game, with a joystick built in as the front button. The controller acts as a Joy-con and was designed to feel as close as possible to owning a Pokéball in real life, letting you perform the throwing action and even digitally store Pokémon inside. Different Pokémon stored within the controller will produce unique noises, rumbles and other effects. Pokémon Let's Go will launch on Nintendo Switch this year, November 16.

Finally, Nintendo announced an entirely new Pokémon game wil lalso be releasing next year on Switch, though no details have beeen released on that so far. What we do know is that it won't be an updated version of Pokémon Let's Go.
