Game Trial is a relatively new setup for Nintendo
, and while an older game, we can't imagine a better testbed for the service than Pokkén Tournament DX
(the game is actually the same as the 2017 release, and it's the full game that is available for trial). Ninty
has revealed that any Nintendo Switch Online
user can now grab a look at Pokkén Tournament DX, with the offer even being valid for new signees and those using the service's 7 day free trial.
Free to play until August 4, Pokken Tournament DX
is also available to be for under $65 dollarydoos. Here's what the game is all about:
Play Pokkén Tournament DX in TV mode, handheld mode, or share a Joy-Con controller with another Trainer to battle one-on-one in tabletop mode anywhere!
A brand new fighter – Decidueye enters the battle, alongside all previous Pokémon from the Wii U and arcade versions.
New Support Pokémon – Litten and Popplio make their debut to lend their support in battle.
Team Battle mode – Pick three Pokémon and battle it out to be the first to defeat all your opponent’s Pokémon to win in the new Team Battle mode.
Group Match mode – Find similarly skilled players in battle rooms for intense and fun battles online.
Daily Challenges – Complete a variety of different daily challenges.
Watch battle replays – Hone your skills by watching other players’ replays and share your best matches online with the new replay feature.
Jump straight into battle – All characters and Support Pokémon will be available right from the start of the game.
We haven't dabbled here in this space, but that 'pokie man' appears to be all the rage, and we don't mean your pop who disappears down to the pub every second Thursday. Hopefully we start seeing more 'preview'-like content hitting the Switch moving forward.
