Pokken Tournament Confirmed coming to WiiU in Spring 2016!

by Rip

Just confirmed this morning at Pokemon World Championships 2015, Pokken Tournament will be coming to the WiiU in Spring 2016. I’ve been invited to participate in the first Pokken Tournament Invitational later this afternoon (1:30pm EST) which will be live streamed at twitch.tv/pokemon. The game plays like a mixture of Smash Bros., Naruto, and Street Fighter. Some of the characters moves are Tekken animations as well.

Pokken Tournament – Bandai Namco – Pokemon meets Tekken!

by Rip

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 Pok√©mon 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.
