Pokken Tournament DX – Switch vs. Wii U graphics comparison, early analysis
Digital Foundry is sharing another technical analysis of a Switch game showcased at E3. This time, Pokken Tournament DX gets the focus.
The first thing Pokken Tournament DX has over its Wii U original is a bump in resolution. Whereas the fighter is running at 960×720 on Wii U, the Switch version is a native 1280x720p – at least when docked. There is a lack of anti-aliasing still, but Switch features improved texture filtering. Pokken Tournament DX also appears to run more consistently at 60 frames per second.

Pokken Tournament controller compatible with the Switch after the 3.0 update
Posted on 1 month ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in News, Switch | 21 Comments | 0 Likes
The Switch 3.0 firmware update brought with it quite a few documented changes – and, as it turns out, at least one undocumented one.
After applying the update, the Pokken Tournament controller that was first released alongside Pokken Tournament on Wii U now works with the Switch. The controller was confirmed to be compatible with Pokken Tournament DX on Switch once it launches in September, but as it turns out, that compatibility extends to a lot more games than that. Early reports seem to indicate that the Switch recognizes the Pokken Tournament controller as a Pro Controller, meaning that it should be compatible with all games that support the Pro Controller.
Of course, it’s missing features like the capture and Home buttons and HD rumble, but the Pokken Tournament controller could nonetheless be a nice, cheap alternative to the Pro Controller.
