BOOM! Here it is! The Pokemon Company promised us all something ‘shocking’ and that particular something happens to be a Pokemon-centric fighting game that goes by the name ‘Pokken Tournament’. In case you haven’t already guessed from the new game’s name, ‘Pokken Tournament’ is an odd but wonderful video game project that mashes together the world of ‘Pokemon’ with the fighting mechanics of the long-running fighting game series ‘Tekken’ for what will be one hell of an arcade title.
Alongside the announcement of the game comes a nice trailer that shows off two of it’s fighters; Lucario and Machamp. Unfortunately for the four-armed brawler, Lucario is a favorite among the fans and seems to be doing a lot more ‘ass kicking’ than his opponent. ‘Pokken Tournament’ will be spearheaded by both The Pokemon Company and Bandai Namco Games, it is set to be released throughout video game arcades in Japan sometime next year and the general hope of Western fans is that it gets some sort of console release and makes it to local shores as soon as it possibly can BUT as of right now nothing has been said about such a thing so you’ll just have to take solace in the fact that it actually exists.
