A few days ago, The Pokemon Company revealed the upcoming Switch titles, Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee. Now, it has been confirmed by the developer that both games will be requiring players a subscription to Nintendo Online to access the game’s online features.
Speaking to GameSpot, The Pokemon Company revealed the details about the online features players can expect on both Let’s Go games. Check out the statement below via GameSpot.
"Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu and Pokemon: Let's Go, Eevee will have online play functionality. Battling and trading with other players over the Internet or locally will be available in these games. However, the feature set will be somewhat simplified in comparison to previous games in that there is no GTS, Wonder Trade, or Battle Spot (Rating Battle, Free Battle, and Online Competition, etc.) for example. Further details will be revealed at a later date. An active membership for the Nintendo Switch Online service, which is scheduled to begin in September of this year, will be required to access these features."
Nintendo revealed the details for the upcoming Nintendo Switch Online service, which is scheduled to launch sometime in September. Currently, subscriptions are priced at $4 for the monthly subscription, $8 for a three-month subscription, and $20 for a 12-month plan. In addition, Nintendo is also offering a family plan that allows eight Nintendo accounts to share membership and is currently priced at $55.
Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee is scheduled to release on November 16 for the Nintendo Switch.
