Nintendo has recently announced Pokken Tournament DX for the Nintendo Switch and according to its official website (via Nintendo Everything), it mentions that the Wii U controller will be compatible with the game, so if you already own the controller and don't plan on buying more accessories and peripherals for the Switch, you can reuse them.

For those unfamiliar with Pokken Tournament, it is basically a fighting game that uses characters from the Pokemon universe, where instead of dueling it the normal way you might expect from Pokemon games, the fighting style is more "violent" and dynamic, so if you prefer fighting games like Street Fighter, then Pokken Tournament could be for you.
