There's a new Hawaii-flavored Pokémon game out for Nintendo's mobile console right now. But if you're willing to wait quite a few months, you might be able to play it on your TV instead.

Eurogamer reports Nintendo's upcoming console, the Switch, will be getting a version of "Pokémon Sun and Moon" It's tentatively titled "Pokémon Stars," and it's slated to come out in late 2017.

If that's true, this will mark the first time a major Pokémon sequel has graced one of Nintendo's home consoles.

While offshoot games like "Pokken Tournament" have shown up on TV screens before, the series' big gotta-catch-'em-all games have been confined to hand-held consoles.

A big Pokémon game could add some heft to the Switch's lineup of games. The only big first-party Nintendo game confirmed for the console so far — "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" — is also coming out on the company's last console, the Wii U.
