During the latest Pokemon Direct, The Pokemon Company unveiled that Wii U/ Arcade fighting game Pokken Tournament is headed to the Nintendo Switch. The game will come out as Pokken Tournament DX offering players a definitive experience like the current Arcade version.

Pokken Tournament DX boosts the playable Pokemon roster from sixteen to twenty-one, adding in Darkrai, Croagunk, Scizor, Empoleon and Sun and Moon’s Decidueye as new fighters.

The game will offer players the chance to play on-the-go, even allowing players to use a single Joy-Con to play with others while in “tabletop mode”. The definitive game will likely be played in-the-dock (meaning that the Switch is setup like a traditional console) although it is unclear at this time how the game will perform both on and off the dock.

Pokken Tournament DX is set to hit the Nintendo Switch September 22.
