Pokken Tournament DX gets two new Japanese trailers - Nintendo Switch gameplay featuring Decidueye, Darkrai, and more

Pokken Tournament DX is on its way to the Nintendo Switch. The official, Japanese Pokemon YouTube channel recently released two trailers that feature all new gameplay of the upcoming updated version.

DX is the core game found on Wii U, but adds 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.

The most anticipated update, however, comes in the form of the game's roster. Darkrai, Scizor, Empoleon, Croagunk -- each previously exclusive to the arcade version of the game -- and Decidueye, the first Pokemon from the Sun and Moon series, join the battle.

One of today's trailer gives each of these five characters their time in the spotlight. This is much appreciated, as a character like Decidueye hasn't been seen that much outside of the Pokken Tournament DX announcement trailer.

The other trailer shown today focuses more on a general breakdown of how the game operates on the Switch. Though it is entirely in Japanese, the on-screen graphics do a good job of getting the information out there.

You can check out a handful of screenshots below. Hit the jump to view the trailers.

Pokken Tournament DX hits the Nintendo Switch on September 22nd, 2017.
