Sorry folks, this looks like it was indeed a pricing error and has now been swiftly corrected. It’s now returned to its original price of £49.99. We did say you needed to be quick…
We’re always on the hunt for deals like this, so be sure to return to Trusted Reviews so you don’t miss out.
If you’re looking for something else to play instead, perhaps consider Rayman Legends that has seen a sizeable discount on the Nintendo eShop.
If you act fast, you can pick up Pokkén Tournament DX for a bargain price as a digital download.
Digital downloads of retail Switch releases aren’t exactly always available for a bargain price. You can often end up paying more for the convenience of not having to swap out cartridges. In this writer’s view it’s a little frustrating to often not save money when you’re not getting the added expense of physical packaging and cartridges.
Well, the good news for me then is that you can currently pick up Pokkén Tournament DX on the Switch as a digital download for just £12.85. For context, the physical release is selling for £41.99 on Amazon.
It’s not often you see such a massive discount on a digital release, and Nintendo haven’t exactly been as forthcoming with the eShop discounts compared to Sony or Microsoft. So if you’re after a fun fighter that you can take on the move, you might want to snap this up before the price goes back up. Up until today Amazon has been selling the digital copy for £49.99 (so for more than the physical release), so this might well be a pricing error. Seriously, bag this before it’s gone.

As for Pokkén Tournament DX, we gave it a solid 7/10 review when Jordan King put it through its paces. Our review stated: “Pokkén Tournament DX’s primary source of entertainment can arguably be attributed to its stellar online and local multiplayer. Snapping off a couple of joy-con controllers and duking it out with friends is a joy, especially when matches result in tense tiebreakers just begging to be concluded with a devastatingly well-timed combo. Once again, the Nintendo Switch proves itself as a phenomenal multiplayer machine with a library to match it.”
Jordan concluded: “While the solo campaign isn’t what it could have been, Pokkén Tournament DX makes up for this shortcoming with excellent local multiplayer and an impressive suite of online offerings. Oh, and this probably the only game in existence where you can see Pikachu pull off a Stone Cold Stunner.”
So if you do want to see your favourite Pokémon duking it out in a different format, then you’re likely going to get a lot of enjoyment out of Pokkén Tournament DX, especially when you know you’ve snapped up a serious bargain.
