Nintendo unveiled its limited-edition Switch bundles for Pokemon Let's Go on Monday.

Each of the bundles -- which will be released on Nov. 16 -- comes with a console featuring Pikachu and Eevee silhouettes. The pair will also appear on the special Joy-Con and the console's dock.

One of the two versions of the game -- Let's Go, Pikachu! or Let's Go, Eevee! -- will come preinstalled on the console and you'll get a Poke Ball Plus controller.

We've reached out to Nintendo about pricing for the bundles, but expect them to cost about $400 (£370/AU$515). The normal console is currently $300 (£280/AU$400), and Let's Go/Poke Ball Plus sets cost $100 (£90/AU$115) each.

The yellow coloring and art on the Joy-Cons is reminiscent of the limited-edition Game Boy Color released with Pokemon Yellow (which the Let's Go games are heavily influenced by) in 1999.
