Pokkén Tournament English Trailer Is Here


Following its reveal on a NicoNico live-stream earlier this morning, The Pokémon Company has officially announced Pokkén Tournament, complete with an English-language trailer. You can watch this below.



Pokkén Tournament is being developed in collaboration with Bandai Namco Games, and will be released in Japanese arcades in 2015. A Western release has not yet been confirmed.


A console release for the game has not been announced either, but during the live-stream, The Pokémon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara—whether by accident or on purpose—let slip that the game would be released “first” for arcades.
