UPDATED WITH FULL RECAP VIDEO BELOW OFFICIAL TRAILER. Pokemon meets Tekken with Pokken Tournament scheduled for an arcade release in 2015! Apparently there are hints it will head to the WiiU after? Tekken creator Katsuhiro Harada and Soul Calibur producer Masaaki Hoshino are both involved! “Whether you are a casual player, a regular player or a hardcore player, anyone who likes Pokémon can have fun,” said Katsuhiro Harada. Apparently the game will be more casual in nature, but will also appeal to adult gamers. Looks like Harada wasn’t kidding when he said he had a lot of titles he was working on. Check out the trailer below though, it definitely has a Tekken vibe with WAY more flash.
Just announced on the Fray, MrWizard just confirmed (after beating Markman in a ft1 online) that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 WILL RETURN to Evolution 2014 this year! Markman reached out to Namco Bandai, went to Japan, met up with the team there and helped make this happen. So everyone say thanks to Markman23 on twitter, @Harada_TEKKEN, @mykeryu and everyone else! Additionally, Bandai Namco is an official sponsor of Evo2k14 as well! NOW is your time to show your support for Tekken everyone! If you can by any means get there, please do, and I will SEE YOU THERE! LETS GO!
Hey guys, just sharing some of the TTT2 online shenanigans I’ve experienced this past week. A lot of people asked for me to play TheMainMan previously and we finally got to play! It was a TERRIBLE connection (expected, he lives across the planet) but we played through it regardless. RunItBlack .. hit me with some lasers, and got me a little angry in the process. And Forest16 gets me extremely sarcastic… Of course, catch the streams live by following the Twitch channel, and as always, subscribe to the youtube channel! Check out the vids below:
Kane has been hard at work grinding away on Tekken Revolution and he’s just unlocked the first 70k Blood Seals for Eliza! Check it out below! He included the intro / outro for her as well!
The newest character to the Tekken franchise Eliza is available to unlock in Tekken Revolution. It will be a week or so until people grind out the 20,000 blood seals to unlock her, but you can run into her through Arcade Mode! Here’s my first run-in with her – I let her attack to see what she would do. This was on Very Hard.
