Pokken Tournament is making its return on September 22nd, only this time it will be on the Nintendo Switch.


Pokken Tournament DX is an updated version of the previous iteration and comes with new characters and modes for fans to enjoy. Players will be able to do battle via the Switch's local ad-hoc multiplayer as well as single-JoyCon control.

Five new pocket monsters are being added to the game: Darkrai, Scizor, Empoleon, Croagunk, and Decidueye. The former four all come from the arcade version of the game, however, Decidueye is a newcomer and the first Pokemon from the Sun and Moon series to enter the fray.

Players can also look forward to a new online ranked mode, 3v3 team battles, and friend-only group matches.

If you're hoping to see more of Pokken Tournament DX, you won't have to wait long. Nintendo has added the game to their E3 line-up of tournaments this year, so we'll be seeing four two-player teams duking it out on Wednesday, June 14th.

Below are some screenshots of Pokken Tournament DX to get you started. You can check out the trailer after the jump.
