The Nintendo Switch Console
With well over 14 million units sold, there is little doubt about it, Nintendo have struck gold with their Nintendo Switch console.
Released in March 2017, the Nintendo Switch console has allowed the gaming giants to appeal to a younger and increasingly mobile audience. So, it only seems right that the ridiculously popular console is to partner up with another craze - Pokémon.
With the collaboration set to be released in November 2018, this announcement has set the gaming world on fire. Reportedly entitled Pokémon: Let's Go, the Nintendo Switch games aim to entice a new generation of gamers by showcasing similar theories to that explored within Pokémon Go, whilst also re-engaging those die hard Pokémon fans who may be seeking a serious injection of nostalgia.

Nintendo have announced that two new games are on the cards and are said to be named "Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu" and "Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee". Game play will take those die hard gamers back to a graphically enhanced Kanto, which is the original stomping ground for the Pokémon franchise.
