Many people thought Pokemon Go was dead, but this is far from the truth. Niantic has just announced some exclusive releases that might really count as a huge breakthrough for the company. The game will cross platforms through two games specially designed for Nintendo Switch and will also bring a lovable Bluetooth sensor shaped like a Pokeball.
Two new Pokemon games on Nintendo Switch
If you played Pokemon Go from the beginning, you must remember that cute little sensor called Pokemon Go Plus. Whenever you passed a Pokestop or stumbled upon Pokemon you could catch, the device started vibrating to alert you of their presence and improve your gaming experience.
Now, Niantic has made great plans for the game and hopes to capture everyone’s attention again. Together with the video game developer Game Freak, Niantic decided to bring some special Pokemon titles on Nintendo Switch. The two games are called Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!
The games get an extra device shaped like a Pokeball
Also, they thought the idea of the sensor was a great idea, so now they are revamping that concept. The new extra device will be even more Pokemon-like, as it will look just like a Pokeball. However, it’s a lot more than an improved sensor. First of all, you can use it as a controller while playing the Pokemon games on the Switch.
However, the Pokeball Plus is even better than that. Niantic has revealed that, whenever you catch a Pokemon, the device will imitate its sounds and movements and you’ll feel it moving as if it were inside. Also, the sensor will light up with the Pokemon inside, thus turning everyone’s regular gaming experience into a magical one.
The companies hadn’t revealed exactly when it the Pokeball will be released. The two Switch games will be out on November 16th, so the device should appear in the same day. However, you’ll have to buy each item separately.
