Pokken Tournament Announced

Pokemon meets Tekken. Wat.

Posted By | On 27th, Aug. 2014

This is big. Bandai Namco and Nintendo announced today that they will be collaborating and working on a new game together in the Pokemon series, a brand new fighter- a fighter unlike Nintendo has ever had before. It’s called Pokken Fighters, and it’s a 3D fighter featuring Pokemon, that aims to be as technical as the excellent Tekken games.

So far, it has only been announced for an arcade release in Japan for 2015, although every single fighter (not called Smash Bros.) gets a release on arcades first, before the console release follows about six months later. The arcade release allows developers to get feedback en masse and re-tweak and re-balance the game as necessary.

Pokken Fighters is just one of the ‘Tekken’ projects that Namco Bandai is currently confirmed to be working on, out of a total of five. We know of two other projects, which are Tekken 7 and Tekken x Street Fighter. The other two Tekken related projects are unknown.
