Possible Pokkén Tournament DLC for Darkrai, Scizor, Empoleon

Pokkén Tournament DLC may be near, as the game’s latest patch, version 1.3, includes files related to Pokémon Darkrai, Scizor and Empoleon.

The game’s latest update made balance adjustments to the game’s entire roster of 16 fighters, but new files were included, suggesting DLC may be on the way.

“I dumped the new 1.3 update to sift through to see if there were any DLC clues,” said Reddit user BananaMuffinFrenzy earlier today. “As expected, every character has been changed in some way (don’t know the specifics though), and there are also a few new files that weren’t present in 1.2.”

Here’s a partial list of the relevant new files included with the 1.3 update — all of them related to battle sequences:

  • btlseq_en.drp\evt_212_shot_link_hit
  • btlseq_en.drp\evt_212_zangeki_shk0_3
  • btlseq_en.drp\evt_212_zangeki_shk1_1
  • btlseq_en.drp\evt_395_iwakudaki_hit
  • btlseq_en.drp\evt_491_darkhole_throw_catch
  • btlseq_en.drp\evt_491_darkpulse_hit
  • btlseq_en.drp\evt_491_darkpulse_hold_hit
  • btlseq_en.drp\evt_491_exATK_hit

Those familiar with the world of Pokémon will know National Pokédex numbers for the three monsters mentioned above; Darkrai is #491, Scizor is #212, and Empoleon is #395.

As this is Nintendo’s final day at E3 2016, perhaps Pokkén Tournament DLC will be announced for fans. If not, it’s unclear why the files were recently added.
