  1. Has anybody here used them before? If so, what did you think? I wanna get Pokken DX for my switch and the special controllers are currently only $10 at gamestop. I might nab one if it’s worth it.

    1. I have one, it’s cool if you want the authentic controller from the arcade, I personally prefer using a wireless controller though. But $10 is a really good deal.

      1. Thanks for the feedback! I might just go for it since it’s so cheap XD Plus I play with my friends a lot, so I could use the pokken pad and they could use the grip so we both have “normal” controllers instead of the individual joycons.

  2. I don’t mind getting the switch version of Pokken Tournament. it has more characters they didn’t appear in the Wii U version. I was right all this time. this game did get a enhanced port XD

  3. Glad they are supporting em! I already had the Pikachu one. And picked up the regular one last week. Now this is a port Ill most likely get.

  4. This does suggest that controller backwards compatibility is possible. Which is good news

      1. Still a good sign. Means that the Switch in docked mode could theoretically be compatible with the GameCube controller adapter and Wii U pro controller since they both use USB connections

      1. Even though spitscreen was an option back on U, it didn’t work. But I srs don’t care xD The Pokkén controller was meh and the game even more… meh-ier

            1. lol charizard was so brutal, I thought the game was fun but I got bored after about a month. I think the 3 vs 3 battles will make the game a lot better though, so I’m looking forward to giving it a go again.
