    Some of you may remember the marvellous Pokkén Tournament, released in 2015 in arcades and later for the Wii U. Pokkén was a unique fighting game featuring a wide variety of Pokémon, drawing inspiration from Tekken and the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm series to make an exciting fighting game that was accessible to newbies, but with a lot of scope for high-level competitive play.

    You may also remember how the game was completely abandoned by Nintendo soon after release – while the arcade version got new Pokémon in the form of Croagunk, Empoleon, Darkrai, and Scizor, those characters never came to the Wii U version, despite dataminers finding assets for them in update code.

    Today, we've got a fix for that – Pokkén Tournament DX has been announced for the Nintendo Switch, and will release worldwide on 22nd September 2017. This version of the game serves as a complete and expanded version of the Wii U and arcade versions – as well as including all content from the Wii U version, Croagunk, Empoleon, Darkrai, and Scizor have been added from the arcade version, and Decidueye joins as a brand new character exclusive to the Switch version. Two new Support Pokémon, Litten and Popplio, also make their debut.

    New modes have also been added to the game:
    • Team Battle mode – Pick three Pokémon and battle it out to be the first to defeat all your opponent’s Pokémon to win in the new Team Battle mode.
    • Group Match mode – Find similar skilled players in battle rooms for intense and fun battles online.
    • Daily Challenges – Complete a variety of different daily challenges.
    Unlike Pokkén Tournament for Wii U, Pokkén Tournament DX has all characters and Support Pokémon unlocked from the beginning of the game, so you can jump straight in and play.

    Lastly, battle replays have been added, so you can watch other players' replays and share your best matches online for other Pokkén players to view.
