    While it’s no “Stars” (which I honestly didn’t believe would be announced) I’m glad Pokken is coming. Pretty happy about that.

      Pokemon stars is the codename for Pokémon ultra sun and moon

      Why did people think that it was a 3rd entry? If anything people should have looked at eclipse

    I’m glad to see those former arcade exclusives (like my buddy Croagunk) making it to Pokken DX for consoles. Was a bit bewildered at first but this is a must-buy for me. Can’t wait.

    I’m almost astounded. The game will work on Switch just fine with the multi-player options, but unless Nintendo has more to announce, I’m just shot back.
    Pokken Tournament is just gonna be another fighter, they’re already promoting a major one in Arms. Few ppl are gonna care

    Didn’t Nintendo take note how the world exploded for Pokemon GO.

    And now Switch is undeniably the perfect platform to finally get the RPG we been waiting for and they’re still dancing around the issue. It doesn’t matter even if it was just an up-rez port, there’s millions out there that wouldn’t care to own a DS but would still buy a Pokemon game.

    Seemingly another missed opportunity to single handedly plant Sony n M’softs face in the ground with your most beloved franchise and Nintendo is still twiddling thumbs

      Considering how long it takes to develope a full Pok√©mon game, and when we got the last one, I think it’s a bit unrealistic to announce a Pokemon RPG for Switch now. Also taking into account how long it will take to port and enhance, there is no wonder we are getting Pokken instead.

      I fully expect there to be a Pok√©mon RPG for the Switch – but with the earliest and most likely launch being Nov 2018 (if not, 2019) why announce it now? That’s not going to phase Sony or MS unless its right around the corner. Especially with many other games on the way – why not focus on them instead?

    I must admit, I was initially disappointed too, but I think Nintendo are holding back pokemon for year 2 of switch. And if you’re gonna do a wii u port, year 1 is the time to do it (smash not included of course haha).
    It just raises expectations that pokemon switch will be a legit built from the ground up game. And I rather have that than a port
