The game’s debut trailer seen above is pretty awesome. In my eyes, today’s fighting games are getting old. Granted, this isn’t a genre that I play much of, but I think a Pokémon title is a much needed refresh. Of course, being a huge Pokémon fan, I’m excited.
Pokkén Tournament is scheduled for a 2015 release in Japan. No other regional releases have been announced as of yet.
What do you guys think about Pokkén Tournament? It’s definitely different, but I think that different is something that this industry needs. Take a look at the trailer and see for yourself!
