The title was originally released for the Wii-U in 2016 but was ported to Nintendo Switch a few months after the console’s launch.

Developed by Bandai Namco, Pokken Tournament DX is an arcade-style fighting game similar to Tekken.

Set in the world of Pokemon, the game allows players to battle with many popular Pokemon including Decidueye, Pikachu and Scizor.

Over 20 Pokemon can be directly controlled in an intense one on one fighting or Team Battle and will earn you the title of “Ferrum League Champion”.

The combat system has been designed for gamers of all levels with simple button combinations or powerful combo systems.

This allows either casual Pokemon gamers or hardcore Tekken fans to enjoy the game.

Hopefully, Nintendo will begin routinely lending out free trials of other games so that everyone can enjoy them and decide upon whether to buy or not.

Gaming demos and trials are a rare thing these days and are becoming a thing of the past.

Not so long ago, it was common for almost every game to have a demo or trial available but that has now become the exception rather than the rule.

This can be quite disheartening when you consider that a lot of games can be rather disappointing and ultimately a waste of money.

Disappointment can be further compounded when you factor in the high price of modern games which is rumored to be increasing with the next generation.

If the current social media comments about the free trial are anything to go by, then bringing trials and demos back can only be a good thing.

Sales of the game have already increased so it is possible that Nintendo may take note of this and release more going forward.

Pokken Tournament DX is an excellent fighting game with a Pokemon face but be aware that it isn’t anything like traditional Pokemon games.
