Free to download and play until August 4, the game sees players duke it out as Pokémon as you seek to become the Ferrum Region Champion. There are 21 different Pokémon available to choose from, including fan favourites such as Charizard, Blaziken and series mascot Pikachu.
If you enjoy your time with the game, it’s currently on sale for $62.95 on the e-shop. Two additional pieces of content are also available for purchase, which adds to new fighters to the game. Battle Pack 1 sees the addition of Blastoise as a playable fighter, with Celebi and Mew joining as new assist characters. Battle Pack 2 adds Aegislash as a new fighter along with new assist characters in Mega Rayquaza and Mimikyu.
Pokkén Tournament DX launched on the Nintendo Switch back in 2017 to positive reviews. With an OpenCritic average of 80, it’s certainly worth checking out, especially if you’re a fan of fighters or Pokémon.
