It’s been a long wait, but today at the Pokemon World Championships in Boston, MA – we received official confirmation that Pokken Tournament would be headed from the Arcades, to our home Wii U systems in Spring of 2016!

“Pokkén Tournament has been announced for the Wii U! Starting in spring, 2016, you can bring home the fun of the exciting Pokémon arcade fighting game. In Pokkén Tournament, Pokémon appear more lifelike than ever before, with amazing graphics and smooth, fluid movements. You will love seeing and battling with your favorite Pokémon.”

Developed by the infamous Bandai Namco, Pokken Tournament is a full fledged 3D Pokemon Fighting Game featuring dozens of your favorite Pokemon brawling it out in a 2D style arena. If you’ve played any of the previous Tekken games, the style is much like this. The combo system however, has been said to be much more expansive, allowing more creativity and more length.

The game will be arriving worldwide on Wii U in Spring 2016! We can hardly wait!
