Pokken Tournament coming to Wii U
A new Pokémon fighting game announced for Nintendo's console
Nintendo has announced Pokkén Tournament, a collaboration project between The Pokémon Company and Bandai Namco Entertainment.
Pokkén Tournament is a new fighting game for Wii U that lets players use their favorite Pokémon characters to battle it out in fighting arenas. The game combines gameplay elements from Bandai Namco's Tekken series with characters from the Pokémon franchise.
Fans who purchase a first-run version of the game at retail stores will receive a limited-edition Shadow Mewtwo amiibo card that immediately unlocks the character in the game after tapping it to the GamePad.
Pokkén Tournament launches exclusively for Wii U in spring 2016 at $59.99.
