'Pokken Tournament DX' will be the first Pokemon game for Nintendo Switch

The Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon release for the 3DS earned particular criticism, with some voicing their desire for a new Pokemon game on the Switch, rather than for the older Nintendo handheld. More information on the latter two games is said to be coming this year. Unfortunately, that did not come to fruition, but all the Pokemon goodies that did get announce are sure to act as a consolation prize, at very least. The semifinal stage will be a best-of-five battle, while the championship will be best-of-seven. You can play by yourself against the computer using just a single Joy-Con, while multiplayer modes include online matchups or local tournaments with groups of nearby friends, according to IGN.

Funnily enough, these versions of the games were originally posted on the Nintendo UK press site for the Switch. Meanwhile, 3DS owners are getting a somewhat new Pokemon game. Pokken Tournament DX is slated to release on September 22, 2017. Also, if you notice in the above screenshot below, there are three selectable slots for what was later confirmed as a team battle mode. However, Pokken Tournament DX will be playable at E3 2017, and Nintendo should reveal more details about the game at that time. Pokken Tournament DX follows in the footsteps of another remake of a popular Wii U title, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, released on April 28.
