Nintendo brings together Pokémon, Switch, and smartphones

Still, free is free, and Pokemon Quest ought to help fill in the gap between now and the releases of both Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! later this year.

Also on Wednesday, Pokemon also showed off Pokemon Quest, a free-to-start game that will be released right away for the Switch and in June for smartphones. Instead, these games blend the tried-and-true catching and battling mechanics with the more casual feel of last year's juggernaut mobile game Pokemon GO. In Pokemon Yellow, your rival used Eevee and it's been used as a partner to Pikachu.

"For many people, Pokemon Go was their first experience with the Pokemon brand, so we have crafted these two new titles to be an accessible entry point to our core RPG series while giving our longtime fans a new way to play Pokemon".

A new page has gone up where you can provide your email to specifically get news and info on Pokémon for Switch. We know the game is coming, and now thanks to Nintendo UK we might know news will arrive sooner rather than later. While Pokemon Go and even Super Mario Run can be considered one-hit wonders, this cross-platform strategy and accessories could be just what Nintendo and Pokemon Co. need to secure ongoing revenue. You can also partake in mini-games when transferring Pokemon over.

The game can be controlled entirely from touchscreen, or with regular controls and TV mode on the Switch. No touchscreen support although it does use the Switch's gyroscope. The new game, which appears to take inspiration from the Pokemon Rumble series, is called Pokemon Quest, and the official Pokemon Twitter account has a lot to say about it. Players can also give presents to their Pokemon Go accounts.
