In a previous article, we revealed the mysterious Shadow Mewtwo, a boss character for the arcade fighter, Pokken Tournament. At today’s Nintendo Direct stream, more light was shed on this unique figure. Shadow Mewtwo will be made playable in the console version of the game, with the assistance of an Amiibo card. This card will be available for free with first-run copies of the game.
Pokken Tournament is a collaborative effort between The Pokemon Company and Namco Bandai, and stands as the first foray into the genre for the long-running Pokemon franchise. Pokken Tournament is due for release in Japan on March 18 next year, with a Western release remaining unspecified.
