This morning The Pokemon Company decided to announce a new Pokemon fight game developed by Tekken creators Namco Bandai games, titled Pokken Tournament. Said to appeal to all types of audiences, both casual and hardcore, Pokken Tournament is supposed to release for Japanese arcades next year. No word on console or a western release.
Pretty interesting to see a fighting game developed by the Tekken Team based on Pokemon. I’m really starting to like the new form of collaboration Nintendo has with it’s third-party partners. I have said before that given their franchises to them would be a smart move and it’s to be paying off. Another co-developed game coming out soon is Hyrule Warriors which seems likely to do well. Lets hope of a console and western announcement soon.
