The Nintendo Switch is getting a pair of new Pokémon games later this year, with Let's Go Pikachu! and Let's Go Eevee! announced for arrival on 16 November. As you can tell from the titles, both games are essentially the same, with the only difference being the choice of Pokémon that will accompany gamers on their journey.

The games are said to combine the augmented reality aspects of Pokémon Go with the a more traditional RPG adventure title. There's even a Poké Ball Plus accessory thrown into the mix as you try to catch 'em all.

For fans of all things Pokémon gaming, both Let's Go titles will be based heavily on 1998's Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition. Added to the single player mode, there will also be a multiplayer option, which means gamers can team up when trying to tackle a particularly tough Pokémon.
