Pokkén Tournament Given a North American Release Date

Nintendo has announced via a press release that Pokkén Tournament, the Pokémon brawler that hit arcades in Japan last July, will be released on March 18 of this year exclusively for the Wii U. Featuring sprawling action between Pokémon old and new, the game promises to bring over-the-top action never before seen in a Pokémon game.

The first production run of the game will include a Shadow Mewtwo amiibo card, and when used in conjunction with Wii U GamePad, will unlock Shadow Mewtwo as a playable character in the game.
