Nintendo Download: Return To The Kanto Region!

Finally, the time is upon us! Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu & Eeevee editions release nationwide tomorrow (November 16)! This is one of Nintendo’s major holiday titles and in a year where they seemed to be on cruise control it’s nice to finally see a major first party release. While most of the other third party retail releases moved out of the way of the behemoth, there are plenty of smaller titles coming out on the eShop. Take a look:
