Seeing the new Nintendo Switch Pokemon remakes next to the Game Boy originals shows just how much the series has grown since 1996
The first set of Pokémon games on the Nintendo Switch has arrived.
The games, titled "Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!" and "Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!", are the first Pokémon games in the main series to be released in high definition - and the updated visuals reflect how far the franchise has come since 1996.The new games are retellings of the original Game Boy Pokémon games, "Red, Blue, and Yellow." While "Let's Go" stays true to the aesthetics of "Red, Blue, and Yellow," the extra visual flair and common-sense improvements to the game create a fresh, modern experience amid non-stop waves of nostalgia.
Seeing the games side by side is an exciting reminder of how much games have changed in the last 22 years, and how the designs of the original Pokémon games have become timeless.
