So yeah, I'm not alone here, but I've decided I’m buying a Nintendo Switch.
Zelda looked nice, sure, and I heard great things about the Labo but come November I’ll be getting one just so I can play Pokémon Let’s Go. This is who I am, and I'm ok with it.
Nintendo finally lifted the skirt on the biggest open secret in gaming this week, and unveiled the first ever proper Pokémon game on a home console. We got a lovely little trailer that teased a load of details about the game. "But what details", I hear you ask.
Well, we've got them here for you so let’s take a magical journey through every single one.
7. There’s Pokémon Go Connectivity
Slightly obvious given the name but nonetheless surprising given the games are being made by entirely separate developers. Niantic, who made Pokémon go, are not a part of Nintendo, Game Freak are.
But, yeah the game is a sequel, successor, parallel title, whatever to the mobile sensation Pokémon Go.
That means that what you do on one, will relate to the other. You can effectively take the game with you everywhere. While this is genuinely groundbreaking functionality it is obviously terrible news for those who were worried about the game's potentially addictive nature.
It’s a home console game, on the most portable home console ever, that also has considerable functionality on your mobile phone. I, for one, am in trouble.
