Earlier this morning, Nintendo held a special stream on NicoNico Douga to discuss the future of Pokemon including one surprise announcement about Pokken Tournament for arcades.
Pokken Tournament is a new project under Harada’s leadership, known primarily for his experience with Tekken and other fighting games. The Pokken (Fighters) trademark was filed last year. However, this is the first time Nintendo and The Pokemon Company have made any official announcement on the IP. As the trademarks were filed in the US, there remains a possible chance that Pokken Tournament will make its way overseas. With the overall decline of arcades across the country, maybe there’s a chance we’ll see this fighter make its way onto the WiiU?
You can check out the announcement trailer for Pokken Tournament below.
