Pokken Tournament DX Announced For The Nintendo Switch

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are heading to the 3DS

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are heading to the 3DS

They didn't share many details considering it was an 8-minute Direct, but it was revealed both games are an alternative story to Sun and Moon set in the same world, and different Pokemon will be featured than the original pair of games. Kind of a bummer, but hopefully Nintendo will have some big announcements for a traditional Switch Pokemon game coming soon.

For those unfamiliar with Pokken Tournament, it is basically a fighting game that uses characters from the Pokemon universe, where instead of dueling it the normal way you might expect from Pokemon games, the fighting style is more "violent" and dynamic, so if you prefer fighting games like Street Fighter, then Pokken Tournament could be for you.

I'm sure you've witnessed the reveal of Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon for 3DS at the end of the Pokken Tournament DX trailer, right?

Ultra Sun and Moon will feature an alternate storyline with new Alola creatures, and will drop on 17 November 2017.

Solo climber is 1st up Yosemite's El Capitan without ropes
The climb up 3,000-foot (914-meter) El Capitan used to take days to complete with the aid of ropes, safety gear and a partner. He has always been atop the climbing-world pantheon, and today's feat puts Honnold in the realm of the climbing gods.

In other related news, The Pokemon Company itself posted record profits, mainly buoyed by the astronomical success of the Pokemon GO smartphone app that launched last summer.

Those on the Switch will be getting a spin-off Pokemon game later this year, which is an updated version of the Wii U's Pokken Tournament. It will be available on September 22. Please refer to the Pokemon Direct for more game details.

Ironically, the best-received announcement during Tuesday's livestream was for another re-release: Pokemon Gold and Silver. While this was news that got fans very excited, Nintendo quickly came out and confirmed that this was an error and the games are only coming to 3DS.

Additionally, there will likely be brand new features tossed into the video game though what they are will likely be unveiled at E3 2017.
