Pokken Tournament, Pokemon Fighting Game, Announced for Japanese Arcades

Today, The Pokemon Company has announced a partnership with Namco Bandai. Of all things, they have announced a Pokemon fighting game called Pokken Tournament. The developers, as Masaaki Hoshino, SoulCalibur producer put it, includes "our best developers, we made the best graphics, and created the best action game, so please! Please look forward to this!"



The trailer shows off something that seems slightly realistic and yet, outlandish. The gameplay certainly seems reminicent of Tekken, yet with Pokemon moves thrown in, and at the very end, we even get a glimpse of MegaLucario.

Pokken Tournament will be released in Japanese arcades at some point in 2015. No word yet on any console or Western release.
