Pokemon announces new game for Nintendo Switch

Nintendo's Pokemon-themed Direct stream announced Pokken Tournament DX for Switch, as well as Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon for 3DS. Perhaps the most exciting news is that the game will feature five new Pokemon not available in the Wii U version, with Croagunk, Darkrai, Decidueye, Empoleon, and Scizor all joining the roster of playable fighters.

Nintendo has released a brand new trailer to highlight its lineup of games for the Nintendo Switch for this Summer.

Team Battle mode is another new feature that lets you pick three Pokemon to battle with against friends, as well as Group Match for playing online. With the Nintendo Switch you can play this anywhere from console, to a bus, to the Invitational Tournament at E3 this year. The Pokemon Company International's press page briefly listed the Nintendo Switch as a platform for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, albeit with a TBA next to it. They'll be hosting a Pokemon Direct tomorrow morning at 10 am ET.

Those interested can pick it up November 17, 2017. As it turns out, Pokemon Sun and Moon will indeed be getting an enhanced edition - two of them, in fact - but they won't be coming to the Switch. Plus, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have historically never announced a mainline Pokemon game at E3, ever, making this as good a time as ever to give us confirmation of this highly anticipated title.

"Pokkén Tournament DX" will be released on September 22.

Like we said, it's very unusual that Nintendo is hosting a direct a week prior to the biggest gaming show of the year.

Pokken Tournament DX will launch on September 22nd 2017 for Nintendo Switch.

Now, go back to being the old person who still plays Pokemon Go.

Still, there's a great chance the games Nintendo revealed Tuesday will be excellent, as almost every game in the "Pokemon" series has been. Catch her on Twitter.
