Pokken Tournament is an upcoming Pokemon fighting game developed by Namco’s Tekken team.
What a weird collaboration.
I’m glad it exists thought. I want Nintendo to continue this trend of lending their properties to other external developers. Now, it’s weird of them to focus only on Pokemon but I guess they didn’t want to step on the toes of Smash Bros.
So who else will make the roster? Will just be fighting Pokemon? I expect both Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee to make appearances. I really hope they stick to fighting type. I would be a weird but awesome story justification for the game.
Pokken Tournament will make its way to Japanese arcades in 2015. I suspect a Wii U version will also be announced for later that year.
