The Pokémon arcade fighter, Pokkén Tournament, just received a new trailer, and it’s a doozy. Shown formally at the Pokémon World Championships in Boston, this title will be released for the Nintendo Wii U coming Spring 2016 for North America, after rave reviews from players in Japan. Everything about this title looks incredible, from the animations to the visuals. Designed by the team responsible for Tekken, Pokkén is shaping up to become the next greatest “must have” title for the Nintendo Wii U in 2016.
The title is slated to feature near field communications (NFC) compatibility, and will feature an increasing roster of characters in the Pokemon franchise, with creatures like Blaziken making a heated entrance. Here’s hoping that the game is a smashing success in North America, because I have high hopes for this title’s release. A trailer is below.
