Pokkén Tournament DX update

Here’s what’s included in the new game update for Pokkén Tournament DX on Nintendo Switch.

Pokkén Tournament DX is probably not the Wii U fighting game we all wanted to see ported to the Switch in its first year. Nevertheless, it’s a solid little game, and probably deserves another chance to find an audience while we wait for the next release in Super Smash Bros series.

Today’s update adds a number of new features to enhance and the improve the game. The big-ticket item is Online Team Battles. Players can now pick three Pokémon each, and battle online for bragging rights.


Also added are Official Groups for the Group Match online battle mode. Soon after the update, the game will feature special Group Matches where players can fight to receive new special titles.

And there’s a fun new addition to the game’s Free Training mode. Players can now control their Pokémon opponent and record its movements. These can then be played back to help improve your fighting skills.

Pokkén Tournament DX is available now for Nintendo Switch.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
