All Pokken Tournament Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2018
This cart likely contains firmware v3.0 which can be used to upgrade from a lesser version, to allow the switch to be hacked. There is no shame in wanting to explore what your hardware can do. Google.
I've also owned this game for a couple of weeks now - it's fun with mates or playing online. If you want a fighter Pokemon meets Tekken style game. The game play is beautiful and not too challenging to pick up so great for people new to the game - accessible to kids and mates if couch gaming. Although it does struggle to hold any single player appeal - you fight through leagues in a kind of repetitive fashion, and there's no progression to unlock new characters (they're all accessible from the start or there's a couple of new characters have come out with paid DLC). This said, I still enjoy owning the game. It has a few quirks that make it unique like the supporting characters that assist you. But, I've got a bit of an attachment to it as I played it in one of Tokyo's huge arcades a year or two ago and I like that association.
Got me there, must think before I type!! I'll walk away and shut the door behind me.
I'm an old school street fighter 2 fan and this game revived the love I had for the fighter game. Both my Boys love it an I'm often steeling the joycons and battling them, Easy to play for beginners, superb graphics / annimations and gameplay.
oh I didn't know you could pirate games on the 2DS like you can on the DS, will have to have a look
In case people are wondering what the point of this is, it also has some use on the Wii U as a pad for virtual arcade games that don't need analogue support. The main reason I bought one though is it is one of the preferred pads for Retropie on the Raspberry Pi.
Decent for less than £20 - thanks for sharing (y)
Ordered. Thanks OP :D
Ok thanks for replying
not much single player content and its a port of a game thats a year old with a few more characters that should really be free since their included with the arcade version
If you like Pokemon and fighting games I say go for it, it's about as good as you can expect for Pokemon fighting game.
Thats interesting to hear, what makes you say that I'd be interested to hear because I'm having a hard time deciding wheter to buy or not. :/
Technically, it's Pokemon Tekken (Pok-ken), but yes - it's pretty much the case. Not that many fighters compared to Tekken, and less of a story behind it. Meant to have a good online presence though.
I'm wondering how much depth there is to this game? I played the demo really briefly so couldn't get the best impression. Is it just a Street Fighter/Tekken with Pokémon?
I literally ordered the game for £42 from Amazon Prime 🙈 What do you think I should do, could I give my son the game tomorrow from Amazon, order this and then return the delivery from Game Collection to Amazon? Thanks in advance

The one day I didn't check my emails (horror) Thanks anyway
Welsh dad's are the best
Yep it was unfortunately
LOL yeah it's better to stay away from ranked matches if you don't know all the characters movesets at the very least. The people who play them generally know how to counter/avoid every move. Reacting to them and knowing how to avoid combos +juggles is incredibly important so getting good requires a lot of practice, I find it funner to play with friends & the occasional online fights since I can't invest that kind of time into a single game. Pokken is beginner friendly so you shouldn't have an issue constantly get beat, just most of the time. Stay away from walls is the only other info I can give you since I haven't played more than a couple of hours.
Absolutely 1000% agree! The face buttons have a wonderful almost click-like feel. I usually reach for this controller when playing snes (and sometimes Tekken 3!)
Paying 30quid for a limited controller which won't work for all games is nonsense
Whilst practicing jeez, I thought they only use arcade sticks, kinda feel better missing the deal now, thought it might make me better (lol) ive been owned many times online with mega combos and all aerial combos to, couldnt even get a move in, amazing people
Is it wishful thinking this would work on Pokken Wii U also?
Won't get to open my switch until Christmas so I'll save this for then , thanks OP
You've got a new item! :|
I thought id never stop getting shirts for a moment there
Saw Nintendo posting it earlier on their Twitter. :) https://twitter.com/NintendoUK/status/911236067193434113 The get deal button takes us to the wrong site. Edit - Had to remove the link as it done it again. It's the link in their tweet which I had posted but it takes me to the wrong place on HUKD
Thanks, where did you find this?
Not sure whether you guys are still trying to get it but finally did earlier by chance just 3 hours before it was due live. (mad)
Noticed the time had gone up, 77 hours to 96 hours :/ Shame they haven't kept the prices as low, Far Cry 5 went up a fiver without displaying a deal,. Good to know though cheers (y)
Guys just to let you know. Don't be getting up early for Mario. It's another 4 days now. They have fixed alot of the issues around the deals. Good news is the most popular games will be getting more stock as the deal goes live but with longer cycles in between, such as Mario Odyssey. So hopefully when it comes around we should all have a decent chance of snagging a copy.
I dont feel as bad now but I was fast n said sorry you had one deal in 24 hours i was like noooo you d*%* yeh 4 days n its same time again!! Not seen switch deal have they stopped!???
I thought might be easy considering the time, and then I go and sign into wrong email (lol)
@aventador1 feel the same considering cancelling my pre-order
Had a play of the demo and was pretty fun but get the feeling it can get boring pretty quickly
Yeh same here, I tried a few different games and wasn't workin, even added games from the list yesterday to get 25 off 150 and wouldn't let me, so gave up
Quite annoyed the code won't work with Mario, tried last week. I originally thought it wasn't on Switch games, then assumed it was because it's a pre-order but this deal disproves both of those.
Almost pre-ordered this yesterday, glad I waited. The boy will love this! Thank you.
Well you personally don't bother me by posting deals, but it is kind of irritating seeing none deals repeatedly in the hot tab just down to their popularity. Especially considering this code has already been made hot on another switch game. It's essentially the same deal. I mean there's been switch deals voted hot when it's just RRP... I was similarly annoyed when SSDs kept getting posted a ridiculous amount.
Heat doesn't make me rich, make me famous or make me popular. I'm just helping other people out. When people search for this game it comes up so it's beneficial for people who come on the site and want to find a deal for this game. I don't see why it bothers you that I'm helping other people out
It seems like an easy way to get heat is to find a popular switch game and find a discount code from some website...
Sweet, Tesco are really good with pre-orders, they usually send items early. Hopefully they do it with this!
You should only be charged lower price, since its pre order price guarantee.If not, complain.
I bought this and its been posted. But amazon reduced the price. Can I complain and get it for this price?
This will now make mario rabbids £34.99 so even cheaper. Cheers
The number of deals someone has posted does not negate the validity of his comment.
Had mine in order since June but for the price of £27 I'm happy to wait.
I pre ordered with the original pokken controller a few months back for £59.99. Is it only the colour that is different?
I got mine from Amazon only (roughly) 2-3 weeks ago. It's currently unavailable again. Just one of those few and far between moments for me in which I got lucky.
Oh it was? Funny, I missed that. Actual stock available or (I'm betting) OOS?
Cheers, this isn't a great deal then.
heat added,if i buy this for my son and he does not want it God love the fussy little chap will i be able to offload at the buy in price,any thoughts appreciated.
I didn't get this on the Wii u, is it a simplified fighting game or is there some depth to it?
Me too :)
its now showing for me, waen't expecting much as im not fan of fighting games but really enjoyed it and will pick it up, if its worth it just for single player
Such an unappreciated fighter on the WiiU. Hopefully the Switch's popularity will find it the audience it deserves.
You can also find it by looking up Pokken Tournament in the 'coming soon' section of the e-shop. Was worried the game would be overly complex but was good fun, definitely keeping my pre-order - £37 from Tesco Direct!
Been playing the UK demo and it is pretty awesome. Now I just need someone to play with (lol)
Thanks for the heads up!
The demo is up for download from the European eshop now if anyone is interested.
Yes tomorrow for the demo on the USA and Euro eShops
I'm hyped for this game.
Thank you- pre-ordered for my grandson- his birthday is the day before.
Thanks so much! Just ordered Mario+Rabbids (highfive)
Fyi couple of games are now free delivery.
Come on Tesco sort out the delivery charge on the other games!
Straight away and refund price drops or cancellation.
But I do agree, the pad won't really make you better! Though as with any Nintendo game (especially this one with Pokemon in!), I expect this to unfortunately cling to its retail price a bit too tightly. I hope I'm wrong
'Pathetically short'?..... Hmmkay (lol) . It actually has a very long cable so you can sit a fair distance away, and you can even use generic extension USB cables for added hilarity. It also works wonderfully on PC and raspberry pi (good SNES controller alternative). The face buttons also feel great to press. Its a niche controller, yes, but its not a bad controller.
"...will not function properly with other game titles." Because of lack of buttons and analogue sticks. Doesn't mean it won't work at all. Great with Ultra Street fighter 2!
Voted cold, gonna see if they just grave rob the Wii U and vote cold on all those too. Yes I am a lot of fun at parties, thanks for asking.
Yeah it seemed to be an unintentional side effect of their 3.0 update that let you use the Pro Controller wired while in docked mode. It works great though
£40 now using code 8086839990 at Toys R Us. Also 3% tcb.
You do love base
Worth the price if you don't have a Wii U but do have a Switch. And always wanted to play Pokken.
I'd imagine it's because, and like someone else said "Not worth the price for a reskin". And it may also be that people tend to not like 5 separate posts which could have easily been 1 or 2
Well I was right to hold out :D
But, a Switch version isn't announced. Holding out for an unannounced game on the chance of some extra bells and whistles? Your call.
Going to hold out for a switch version, feel like they may put the arcade extras in a definitive version.
There's a difference between the two? Oh well.
Checked Canada Water's Tesco and even though it was in stock it was £40 not £16. Meh. Gotta stick to the first print edition that I have.
I can confirm south road has pokemon mew two version for £16 and not a price glith. Only the normal case was on display but took to the till for price check and the staff came back with the mewtwo version. Mario splash and platoon were out of stock. Went to kingsway they had mario kart 8 for £14 and zelda HD for £14 among a few other games on sale but still oos on mario color splash
As others have said, it's only the mewtwo version that's £16. Standard edition is still £40
I checked this morning, other games were £12.50, but pokken tournament was still £40 in our Tesco :(
