7-Eleven Offers Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!/Eevee! Switch Game Bundles

Anime News Network's merchandise coverage sponsored by Tokyo Otaku Mode.

The Seven Net Shopping online shop, which 7-Eleven Japan parent company Seven & i Holdings Co., Ltd. operates, unveiled special bundles for the upcoming Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! Nintendo Switch games. The website's bundles will offer an exclusive steelbook case and acrylic key holders.

The game with one of the key holders will cost 4,980 yen (about US$45). A box set with the game, Poké Ball Plus controller, a key holder, and the steelbook case will cost 9,980 yen (about US$90). The steelbook case will be the franchise's first in Japan. Another set will bundle a Nintendo Switch, the game, a Poké Ball Plus controller, a key holder, and the steelbook case for 39,960 yen (about US$360).

The games are slated for release on November 16, and Seven Net Shopping will begin accepting pre-orders for the exclusive sets soon.

The games are set in the Kanto region of the first Pokémon games, and are specifically based on 1998's Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition.

The games support both single player and local cooperative play, and can be controlled with only one Joy-Con controller. Players use the controller to throw Poké Balls and capture Pokémon. Nintendo will also offer a Poké Ball Plus controller that functions as a Joy-Con, but can also "hold" one Pokémon that can then be transferred to a user's Pokémon GO smartphone game account. Players can also transfer Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!.
