Nintendo has announced Nintendo Switch Online is adding the classic Pokemon Stadium next week.
Pokemon Stadium is coming to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers next week – on April 12th. The classic pokemon battling game is coming with all its iconic mini-games intact, too.
Here’s a rundown on the game, plus a new trailer:
Originally released on the Nintendo 64 system in 2000, this battle arena game features every Pokémon from the Pokémon Red Version, Pokémon Blue Version and Pokémon Yellow Version games alongside a bevy of solo and multiplayer* modes designed to test your mettle as a Pokémon Trainer!
In Pokémon Stadium, you can battle it out solo with your chosen team of six Pokémon across four tournaments in Stadium mode or run it back against Kanto’s elite Trainers in Gym Leader Castle. Winning in either of these modes will secure a spot for your champion team in Victory Palace, but completing both modes will unlock a final battle to challenge even the ultimate Trainer.
Looking for some multiplayer free-form fun? Compete in no-holds-barred battles with friends in the 1-4 player Free Battle mode, or party it up with a collection of nine minigames in the Kids Club. It might be called the Kids Club, but even seasoned Trainers may feel the heat in the Sushi-Go-Round kitchen, or after reaching new heights in Magikarp’s Splash!
