Pokémon Fighting Game Announced

Get ready for a new kind of Pokémon battle.

The Pokémon Company is joining forces with the makers of Tekken and Soulcalibur for a new fighting game called Pokkén Tournament. It’s an arcade fighter that will pit your favourite Pokémon against each other, and use the same 3D graphics of the recent Tekken games. Tekken game director Katsuhiro Harada is involved in the development, along with Soulcalibur producer Masaaki Hoshino.

Pokkén Tournament will land in Japan arcades next year. Keep your fingers crossed that it will also find its way to North America.
