Pikachu and Eevee” bundle was announced previously that will come with yellow and tan Joy-Con controllers as well as imagery of the titular Pokémon Pikachu and Eevee.

“Fortnite” just kicked off its sixth season, introducing a Halloween-like theme known as Darkness Rises, described by Epic Games as a season of “frights and delights” with pets like Camp, Bonesy, and Scales to collect in addition to customizable Progressive Skins. Werewolves, robotic llama DJs, and a whole new selection of silly emotes have been included, which fans continue to eat up.
