Nintendo shares were on the rise again ahead of today’s Pokemon Direct update. Many will feel the updates themselves were underwhelming but there are some strong positives to take away from the briefing and something not just for 3DS players but also for Nintendo Switch players. These updates come a few days before Nintendo Spotlight at this year’s E3 so expect more big news to come!
Pokken Tournament On Switch
For anyone who didn’t own a Wii U, which is most of you I imagine considering the less than desirable sales stats, you will be glad that one of the consoles top brawlers is now on its way to Nintendo Switch. This game looks to combine Pokemon with Tekken to create impressive battles between your favourite monsters from the much loved Pokemon franchise.
The game received positive reviews when it launched for Wii U with some claiming it to be one of the best fighting games across all platforms, at the time. This will be a welcomed addition to the current line up of Switch releases this year and should appease anyone who is waiting for a Super Smash Bro’s Switch announcement (can’t just be me!).
Check out the trailer to see Pokken Tournament in action ahead of its release on 22nd September 2017!
