The Nintendo Switch is getting its first Pokémon game

Though it might not be exactly what fans wanted, there’s finally a Pokémon game coming to the Nintendo Switch. “Pokkén Tournament DX” (the DX means “deluxe”) will be coming to the hybrid console in the fall.

As a “deluxe” version of the original “Pokkén Tournament” game for the Wii U, the new game will feature five new Pokémon, bringing the total number of playable characters to 21. The new, “deluxe” features include 3-on-3 team battles, online ranked matches, and friend-only one-on-one and group matches that don’t impact your global ranking.

The game can be played using the Switch’s dock and a TV set, or in “tabletop mode” with the console’s handheld screen placed on a table and each player using a Joy-Con, or in handheld mode (shown in the image above).

“Pokkén Tournament DX” will be released on September 22. You can check out the announcement trailer here.
