POKKÉN TOURNAMENT Officially Announced, Coming to Arcades 2015

In a stream by Famitsu earlier today, the long rumoured collaboration between The Pokémon Company and Bandai Namco Games has been officially revealed to be POKKÉN TOURNAMENT, an arcade fighting game very similar to the Tekken series. We know that Katsuhiro Harada and Masaaki Hoshino, the lead producers of Tekken and Soul Calibur, are associated with the project and the game will released first in Japanese arcades next year.

No news on a home console release as of yet but we will receive more news in next week’s Famitsu. In the meantime, check out the official announcement trailer for the game below, which shows Lucario and Machamp fighting it out. Tell us your thoughts on the game in the comments below:
