For those unfamiliar with Pokken Tournament, the game is Bandai Namco’s take on a Pokemon-themed fighter like Tekken. What’s different is that the game will swap between 2D and 3D phases, with 2D focusing on close-quarters fighting and 3D focusing mainly on projectile-based attacks. The game also has a focus on the dynamics between attacking, counter attacking, and throwing. There are also Assist Pokemon that come in sets that are chosen before every round and can be used to help in fights.
Pokken Tournament DX is available on Nintendo Switch.
