I didn't buy it on the Wii U and I still feel slightly short-changed!

But, why though?

I mean, isn't this arguably the same thing Nintendo did with MK8D but with even more potential? MK8 on Wii U sold loads for the console, but a quick port to Switch and it's done fantastically thanks to a fresh audience. I think Pokkén has even more potential to do gangbusters - it's the first Pokémon game on Switch for one, and it's a game that even fewer people played compared to MK8, yourself included.

It's another sales coup for the Switch, as you said yourself! Granted, I'd feel shortchanged if I'd bought this on Wii U but for first time players like you and I, it's for all intents and purposes a brand new game like MK8D was for myself.

The Story Mode is quite lengthy, though the difficulty curve is all over the place. That's pretty much all there is, for the single player, if I remember rightly... though I do stand to be corrected!

It's the timing, Jay. With the rapid pace of modern life, MK8 feels like it already came out a fair time ago. The original Pokken hit Wii Us in... 2016 I think. That feels like taking the mickey to me.

I think this is pretty standard for fighting games, though. Street Fighter 4, Super Street Fighter 4, Ultra Street Fighter 4, Ultra Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition and so on . . .

As someone who played and enjoyed the game on Wii U, I don't feel it adversely effects me in any way that other people might get to play it now.

Pokken is one of the last 2 games on my list of Wii U games I missed (the other being Tokyo Mirage Sessions), so I'm well up for this.

Difficulty doesn't bother the fighting game king. Cool

The story mode is more of your standard arcade mode but with a Pokemon flair due to leagues.

The Pokken controller will work with the game, for your boy Drunka.

I did get this for the Wii U and only played it for a day at most. So with it being on the switch I'm up for it as I should be able to play it a bit more

As I've said elsewhere, not played the original enough so it'll be like a new game for me and it's still around the new console hype for me to want it. Went and got Ł20 for the Wii U version today as well so not losing out too much money wise.
