Nintendo & Namco Bandai Reveal Pokken Tournament!
The long rumored Pokemon fighting game has finally been revealed as Pokken Tournament. The game is being co-developed with Bandai Namco and apparently runs on the Tekken game engine (hence the Pokken name). Pokken Tournament is currently slated as an arcade fighting game but fans are hoping for a future Wii U release. The game has some serious development talent behind it as Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada and Soul Calibur producer Masaaki Hoshino are both heavily involved with the project. While details are scarce at the moment, the Pokemon Company released an official trailer for the game on their YouTube channel. The game is set to hit Japanese arcades in 2015 but seeing as the trailer is in English, expect a worldwide announcement (Wii U possibly?) in the near future. Enjoy!
