A few short gameplay clips have been released for Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu & Eevee, the Pokemon games releasing later this on Nintendo Switch.

The new clips, which have been put together in a single video by Centro Pokemon, showcase several Pokemon such as Venusaur and Onix following the player controller trainer. You can check out the video below.

Nate had the chance to try out Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu & Eevee during the E3 2018 back in June, and he felt that the games may not have a lot of staying power, despite coming with some interesting features.

Ultimately, what really set the Pokémon: Let’s Go experience apart was the new Poké Ball Plus accessory. No doubt, it’s a novel little item – it’s adorable, is made of super nice textured plastic, and being able to feel the pokémon you just caught move around via HD rumble is undeniably cool. That said, it isn’t much of a controller. The Poké Ball Plus only has one button and an itty-bitty, clickable analog stick, which can easily become misaligned if you don’t keep the ball oriented properly in your hand.

I’m left wondering what kind of staying power the Let’s Go games will have. They aren’t without their charms – it’s certainly nice to see Pikachu and pals in crisp HD — but I’m not sure I see myself sitting down for long play sessions with these games or devoting dozens of hours to filling out my Pokedex. But I realize these games probably aren’t being made with me in mind.

Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu & Let’s Go Eevee launch on November 16th exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
