Fans of Pokemon and fighting games found themselves content once Pokken Tournament released on Wii U last year. Fortunately for them, the game did not die along with the system. It was just announced via a Pokemon Direct this morning that Pokken Tournament DX would be the first Pokemon game on the Nintendo Switch.
This version of the game will take advantage of the Switch’s portability, allowing users to play on two separate Switches via local multiplayer. Of course, you’ll also be able to play the game old school by hooking it up to a TV. You can also mount it on the kickstand to play with two controllers including the left and right Joy-Cons.
However, this won’t just be a straight port of the Wii U version. New will be new features including 3v3 Team Battles, Ranked Matches, and Friend-Only Group Matches. There will also be 5 additional Pokemon added to the roster, being Darkrai, Scizor, Empoleon, Croagunk and Decidueye.
Pokken Tournament DX is coming out for the Nintendo Switch on September 22. The game will be playable at this year’s E3 happening next week, along with the streaming of Nintendo Treehouse Live as well as having its own invitational tournament happening on June 14 at 10:30 AM PT. This goes along with the ARMS Open Invitational and Splatoon 2 World Inkling Invitational. Looks like Nintendo is going to be hosting quite a few tournaments coming next week!
You can watch the Pokken Tournament DX trailer in the Pokemon Direct below, where they also announced Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon for the 3DS and Pokemon Gold and Silver for the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. Unfortunately, no mention of a traditional Pokemon game for the Switch, which left some of us disappointed. Oh well, we know it will happen eventually. In the meantime, we’ll enjoy some Gold and Silver.
