Pokken Tournament DX, the new version made for the Nintendo Switch, is set to release this Friday on 9/22/2017. Boston’s local fighting game tournament, The Balance Patch, will include a special guest tournament of Pokken Tournament DX on its launch day along with more familiar games such as Street Fighter 5, Tekken 7 and more.
Pokken Tournament DX is already getting excellent reviews and is really what the game should have been in the first place. Players are able to face each other on one screen using only the included controllers. The DX version includes all of the arcade characters as well as newcomer Decidueye.
People have said that Pokken Tournament is a dying game because it was on WiiU. That might have been true, but the release on the Nintendo Switch will breathe new life into the game. It is quite possible that the game will be more popular than ever before.
