The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo today announced the upcoming release of Pokkén Tournament for Nintendo’s Wii U. Currently an arcade game available only in Japan, Pokkén Tournament for Wii U will be released worldwide in spring 2016.
Developed in collaboration with BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc., producers of TEKKEN®, one of the most successful fighting-game franchises in history, Pokkén Tournament brings Pokémon to life in a way never before seen, where Pokémon in battle move in direct response to the player’s actions. The intuitive controls make this fighting game accessible to players of all skill levels, and the stunning visuals emphasise the size and power of each Pokémon.
“Pokkén Tournament combines the best elements of a traditional fighting game with an authentic Pokémon experience,” said J.C. Smith, director of Consumer Marketing at The Pokémon Company International. “Fans will be thrilled to see their favourite Pokémon battle in a whole new way.”
NOTE: And this means we get two Pikachu!? Why not use another Pokémon instead of the regular Pikachu from the start? Still looks cool though… 😀
