Pokemon: Let's Go - Full details from Famitsu's review

We already shared Famitsu's review of Pokemon: Let's Go, but that was just the overall score given. Now we have the actual blurbs from each reviewer, which you can find below.

1st reviewer: Although this is based on Pokémon Yellow which was released in 1998, everything is getting reworked which leaves a good impression. With a huge improvement on controls and presentations, it’s good that you can taste both nostalgia and freshness at the same time. The motion to capture Pokémon by swinging the Joy-Con just like throwing a Poké Ball is also fun, and having two players play at the same time with a single software is also great. The linkage with Pokémon GO and the support with Poké Ball Plus are also nice. 9

2nd reviewer: Having wild Pokémon appear as symbol encounters without any battles is a bold [choice of] system, but you can casually taste the fun of catching and collecting [Pokémon], and being able to progress quickly is also good. For people who have played past series games, it doesn’t mean they can have an all-fresh experience, but the gameplay of swinging Joy-Con or Poké Ball Plus will make you feel more like a [Pokémon] trainer. The speciality sense of your partner Pokémon, which always stays on your side and can even be put clothes on, is also the best.. 9

3rd reviewer: The re-interpretation which matches with the era and the Nintendo Switch is great, and this game will firmly catch the hearts of not only first-timers but also those who still remember the nostalgia. The system, which can be enjoyed with family during tea time, fits well with the nature of the game which is great. The very natural linkage with Pokémon GO is also well tempered. As you go adventuring, the bonds with your Pokémon strengthen little by little; the presentations that can make you feel that are lovely and come firmly.. 10

4th reviewer: The existences of the Pokémon have been refined to be cuter and more brilliant; every kind of presentation that let you feel that real close to you is the main highlight. You’ll need some degrees of tricks and familiarity on the controls with Joy-Con or Poké Ball Plus in order to get Pokémon, but your mind easily return to childhood. The point where it’s being made so that it can be enjoyed by two generations of parent and child even outside two-player mode is unique to this series which already has a history of its own. “Unknown existences” such as new Pokémon now have better accents. 9
