Pokkén Tournament DX serves as a definitive edition of Nintendo's fighting game, and it fits well on the Switch aside from choppy split-screen multiplayer. Five new characters and a new three-on-three mode are noteworthy additions, though the new challenge mode doesn't live up to its name.

A Pokémon fighting game may not seem like the most obvious spin-off idea, but the end result is a surprisingly fun and inventive multiplayer game.

Pokkén Tournament DX won't exactly draw in those who aren't interested in fighting games or who've already played the version released on the Wii U, but it does offer a fun system to fool around with to those waiting for a train or sitting on a toilet or something.

It may not be as deep and complex as some traditional fighting games. But the gameplay is solid and fun, and fans will love the Pokémon setting (the creatures and its attacks never looked so good). It has additional characters compared to Wii U game.

This fighting game is perfect for those that have not tried the original Wii U verison. It is still one of the best options of the genre for those who own the Nintendo console.

With an expanded roster that only improves on an already great lineup, fantastic gameplay, and an increased range of challenges and modes, Pokkén Tournament DX is true fighting game gold.

Pokkén Tournament DX is definitely the ultimate edition, but that does not mean that we don't see its lack of contents and does not justify a new purchase for those users of the game on Wii U.

A funny and approachable fighting game that uses perfectly Nintendo Switch portability. Perfect for local or online multiplayer matches, it features great technical improvements over its Wii U version, but lacks of interesting content when it comes to single player modes. The Deluxe version can be considered the definitive edition of Pokkén Tournament.

Pokken is a fighting game that while decent could do with understanding that complexity doesn't necessarily equal depth.
