Release dates of Nintendo new Pokemon games

Nintendo announces new Pokemon games for the Nintendo Switch at a press conference in Tokyo. Even a single new Pokémon game is enough to make us go gaga, and here they go announcing three. We literally can’t stay still. The three new ways of experiencing the evergreen world of Pokémon are Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! And the free-to-play RPG Pokemon Quest. Each of these brings a new perspective and flavor of Pokemon world and are enough to keep you entertained till the next ones come out. Here are the release dates of Nintendo new Pokemon games.

Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee take the player on a new adventure and yet keep a familiar setting. These Pokémon Yellow inspired games to have many intuitive gaming elements like the Pokémon Go and provide a good stepping stone even for those players new to the Pokémon Gameverse. Depending on the version, you have either Pikachu or Eevee guiding you through a huge Pokemon world waiting to be explored. The best part, the Pokémon you caught in Pokémon GO can be transferred to both the Pokemon: Let’s Go games. Talk about taking care of fans. The games retain the core RPG aspect of the games and should be familiar to players quickly. Both the games will be launched on 16th of November, 2018.


The newly announced JoyCon controller, called Poke Ball Plus can be used to play these games instead of the standard JoyCon controller. It has motion controls, visual feedback, vibration, and sounds, making it feel like an actual Poke ball. Adding to the realism, when you catch a Pokemon, the controller will shake around, indicating that the Pokemon is shuffling inside. You can also bring a Pokémon from the game along with you in this poke ball to the real world as you explore in Pokémon Go and spend more time with it. The game will be launched on 16th of November, 2018.


The third entry is the free-to-play action RPG called Pokemon Quest, developed in conjunction with GAME FREAK. The game takes you through the Tumblecube Island, whereas you guessed, everything is cubic including your favorite Pokémon. Throughout the journey you’ll battle wild Pokémon, hunt for treasure and explore uncharted territories. Sign us up for the journey of a lifetime! The game was released for free on the Nintendo Switch, 30th May 2018 and is expected to launch on Android and iOS devices soon.

These new games have brought back the Pokemon nostalgia. We can’t wait to pick up our Nintendo Switch and Go Catch ‘Em All!
