Pokken Tournament DX

After a stint in arcades, Pokken Tournament was brought over to Wii U. Nintendo and Bandai Namco later created an upgraded “DX” version for Switch. There’s no word on a sequel currently, but that doesn’t mean such an idea is off the table.

Bandai Namco actually seems rather open to working with Pokken Tournament again. Katsuhiro Harada, who was a producer on the game, expressed interest in developing a follow-up when asked by a fan about making a sequel. However, Harada indicated that it’d be up to Nintendo and The Pokemon Company to move forward with a new entry.

Update: Nintendo has just confirmed the same offer for North American and European Switch Online subscribers. In North America, it’s July 29 to August 4 in both regions.

Nintendo has revealed the next game that will be made available for free to Japanese Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. Between July 27 and August 2, Pokken Tournament DX can be experienced in its entirety. Save data is compatible with the full version.

Pokken Tournament DX will also be going on sale along with the promotion. Between July 27 and August 9, it’ll be down to 4,604 yen instead of 6,578 yen.
