YES!

Really liked Pokken so I'm glad it's here ^^

Hope we get more than the obvious stuff the Wii U didn't get.

Awesome, but kinda shitty at the same time. At this point, the only reason to own a Wii U during its lifetime was for Splatoon 1. What a clusterfuck.

Hm, is that what they called it? I thought I heard Pokken Tournament Deluxe.

Nah, that's the official title. The previous game was just called Pokemon Tekken in Europe, as Pokken means pox in Dutch and also sounds like the German word for that. So it's surprising they went with Pokken now.

This is a smart move. That game ended up being way off the beaten path, just because of the original platform. It looks cool and plays differently. I don't "love" it as a fighter, but I've seen plenty of people who do. Even just in the FGC, it has some real support.

I'm sure many are disappointed but Pokken is a great game that was in dire need of a Switch port. The Wii U version was never updated with the new characters and it couldn't even run in HD on the system.

Decidueye was the best choice from sun/moon at least... But they could have added like one more pokemon from that region though... Pheromosa would have been perfect.

I dont know shit about Pokemon. But to add some positivity around here i thought that Pokken Tournament for Switch looked kinda cool.

They seemed to confirm local play, but didn't show how it will work.

For those that don't know, the game kind of has to be behind your Pokemon to really work, hence why the Wii U version had one player on Gamepad screen and the other on TV. The arcade version had two different screens. I'm sure they'll probably demonstrate it at E3, but I would like to see how it works. My guess is just splitscreen play.

It had better run at 60 fps for local multiplayer. Having local multiplayer locked to 30 fps unless you had two tvs was awful.

Genuinely more exciting to me than a Sun/Moon successor could ever have been even if it were on Switch.
Come to me my playable Decidueye, talk about making the right choice.

And now I can make a trio of awesome starter birds, YES!

How does 3v3 work? They could've shown it.


Is it a mini-survival mode or can you actually switch?


And why was 2v2 skipped?

Looks good. My friends enjoyed this one a bit, and now it'll be way easier to play with them without needing to lug the Gamepad around.

Great news!

Was holding off getting the Wii U version as I suspected we would get a port with the missing arcade characters. Glad my patience was rewarded.
