Watch the trailer inside.
It’s surprising, but, considering that Pokken Tournament was first teased with footage of Lucario and Blaziken facing off, we had so far not received any confirmation of the Hoenn fire starter Pokemon in the game. But we finally have it- Blaziken will indeed be in Pokken, and we even get a fancy new trailer to see the sweet new moves that he’ll be using as he tries to kick his way to the top.
Pokken Tournament is a highly technical 3D fighting game based on the Tekken formula, starring Pokemon; it has been released in Japan, but only on arcades- though a console release of the title has not yet been confirmed, it will almost certainly get one, either on Wii U, or, more likely, on Nintendo’s NX console when it launches next year.
In the meanwhile, we can salivate at the prospect of Nintendo having a traditional, technically demanding 3D fighting game in their roster, at last.
