For years, we’ve always wondered what it is like to see Pokémon battles that rival the action and intensity of the TV show. I mean sure, the games have evolved and battles look more entertaining and flow faster, but it’s still a turn-based affair. So how do we take the excitement and pace of the anime and combine it with the depth of the role-playing games?
Enter Pokkén Tournament DX. Long-running fighting game aficionados Bandai Namco entered the fray, bringing the much-loved traits and skills from the Tekken series to Nintendo’s high-selling monsters franchise to craft an entirely new fighting experience. With the release of the Nintendo Switch, Pokken Tournament sees visual updates and minor tweaks that brings this uniquely blended fighting game to a new audience.
