Bandai Namco, the publisher behind the longstanding Tekken series of fighting games, has collaborated with The Pokémon Company to develop a fighting game called Pokkén Tournament. The game sees players taking control of individual Pokémon in a typical fighting game setup.
The reveal is still very new, and so far the game has only been announced for Japanese arcades. Yep, no console announcements or even a Western release as yet. Japan’s arcades have always been streets ahead of anything one could hope to find Western countries, and it isn’t unusual for arcade-exclusive games based on popular franchises to appear in the country.
Whether or not this will make a jump to home consoles or even Western territories is uncertain, but the Wii U could certainly do with further drawcards. For now, however, you can check out the reveal trailer after the jump.
