During today’s Nintendo E3 Direct, Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu! and Eevee! made an early appearance in the presentation. While not much news came out beyond the pair’s reveal two weeks ago. Newly revealed, every Pokéball Plus accessory will come with the Mythical Pokémon Mew. The Pokéball Plus can be used to play the new games in totality and will retail for $49.99 USD and regional equivalents.

Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu! and Eevee! are sort-of remakes of Pokémon Yellow that take inspiration from Pokémon GO on mobile, right down to the catching mechanics. They and the Pokéball Plus controller will launch worldwide on November 16th, 2018.
