Tekken publisher to make Pokkén Tournament fighter


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.

    Well, now I’m jealous of those lucky Japanese arcades. It actually looks like it could be a lot of fun. Will be interesting to see how they incorporate the signature moves of each pokemon into the game.
