Pokken Tournament is coming to Switch, too

This morning, Nintendo revealed the latest entries to the Pokémon game family: Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, new versions of Pokémon Sun and Moon that are coming to the Nintendo 3DS on November 17th. Few details were revealed about the remakes, but Ultra Sun and Moon will feature a new storyline and presumably additional features — and pokémon — as well. Expect to hear more about the games at E3 in Los Angeles next week.

The games will launch almost exactly a year after the originals. Sun and Moon debuted on the Nintendo 3DS on November 18th last year, and introduced several changes that made the experience much more laid-back and inviting than past entries in the series. The games rode a wave of pokémania — led in large part by the success of Pokémon Go — to impressive sales, becoming the fastest-selling Nintendo games ever in Europe and the Americas.

The series is also making its way to the Switch — though not in the form of the long-rumored Pokémon Stars. Nintendo also revealed that arcade fighter Pokken Tournament is making its way to the console on September 22nd. That same day, Game Boy classics Pokémon Gold and Silver will be available on the Nintendo 3DS virtual console.
