What does Pokkén Tournament DX offer us?

To put things in context, Pokkén Tournament DX is the expanded version of the original Wii U video game (2016), which is in turn a translation of the original experience for arcade machines from 2015. A dream for the Bandai Namco team Games materialized under the playable canons of Tekken and SoulCalibur. That deliberate approach introduced new mechanics, a very dynamic combat system with two-dimensional and three-dimensional aspects, with the incentive of being all framed in the Pokémon universe. This was the first time that he bet on a real-time fighting video game with Pokémon and, judging by its sales, a success (more than 1.5 million copies in the DX version only).

In this version, apart from the 16 selectable Pokémon of the original, the 4 contenders of the Arcade version were incorporated and another 3 were added only for DX, thus making the title embrace the creatures of the seventh generation.

Pokkén Tournament DX occupies a place in our Top-10 of best spin-off video games of the Pokémon saga in its entire history. The captained production of Katsuhiro Harada, original from recreational and Wii U, is among the most recommended titles in the series far from the main saga.
