Let’s go back to Kanto where these two brand new Pokemon games are set! Announced last night via an event in Japan the two new titles will work as a bridge between casual players and the core console games. Nintendo and Game Freak are really looking to capitalize on the massive success of Pokemon Go and this game shows that.
There’s a lot of exciting information to get through on this so “Let’s Go”.

“For our first entry on the Nintendo Switch, I really wanted to do something more kind of simplified, something that really anyone could enjoy,” Masuda said. “I think the reason for this is to get more Switches into the hands of younger kids and more casual players, not just players who are really interested in hardcore games or are really gamers first and foremost.”
