With half the cast MIA, Drew and Scott hold the show together by a myriad of news topics including Microsoft’s Xbox One X, PlayStation, the ever controversial No Mans Sky and continuously reoccurring Pokemon conversations.
With Drew out at E3 and Charlie losing power in the middle of this recording, Scott and Jeremy get together to discuss the highlights of E3.
Between Anthem, Super Mario Odyssey, the fact that a core Pokémon RPG and Metroid Prime 4 are both in development for the Swith and so many other big games announcement, this year’s E3 holds a lot to talk about.
Following Nintendo’s tweet yesterday, we now know what Nintendo, The Pokémon Company and Game Freak have in store for Switch and 3DS owners in 2017.
Nintendo kicked off the eight minute direct announcing Pokkén Tournament DX, scheduled for a September 22nd release on Nintendo Switch. The deluxe version of the Pokémon fighting game is getting a new 3v3 team battle mode, online ranked play and friend-only group matches. The game will also feature local wireless multiplayer and the ability to play the game with a single Joy-Con. Pokkén Tournament DX will also feature five new characters: Darkrai, Scizor, Empoleon, Croagunk and Decidueye.
Though we did not receive the mainline Pokémon game for Switch we were hoping for, we did get some information about the next 3DS outing. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will be hitting the Nintendo 3DS line of systems on November 17th. The new titles will feature an alternate story, and new Pokémon not included in the original Sun and Moon games.
