Lucario in all of his offscreen glory.
It’s off screen, it’s grainy, but it still looks pretty damn good- Nintendo and Bandai Namco’s upcoming Pokken Tournament, which basically casts Pokemon characters into a 3D fighting game modeled after the uber hit Tekken series, has been announced for Japanese arcades for a while now, and with each new shred of information that is shared with us, the game continues to look better and better.
Now, we have on our hands here leaked footage from a location test of Pokken Tournament. It is very hard to hear anything over the din of the crowd, and the footage itself is offscreen, and not even very well recorded at that, but it gives us a pretty good idea of just how the game and its mechanics work- and personally speaking, they seem to work very well.
Only two things are now left- for Nintendo to officially announce the Wii U port of the game, and for them to confirm a western release. Let’s hope they get around to it some time soon.
