Watch the opening sequence and some new fighter promos for upcoming Pokemon fighter game Pokken Tournament. Hopefully one day we will get the game released here in the states.
Some Game Information:
Pokemon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara said
“Considering that many of the people in the generation who experienced Red and Green are now nearing their thirties, and those who were in elementary school then are now in university, we aimed to make a game for those who grew up playing Pokemon-rather than just target children…..The bottom line is, we want to show adults that this is the new Pokemon, and get them to play.”
Namco’s Katsuhiro Harada said:
“Players can quit a game after just one try if they find it boring…..Seeing people quit after spending a hundred yen or even watching them play from behind and hearing their reactions firsthand can be very tough. There’ve been countless games that have been unable to re-coup their production costs after customers say things like ‘this is not fun’ or ‘this isn’t good at all!’ I mean, it’s all for nothing if nobody wants to play, even after spending a stupendous amount of money to develop the software, to cover the cost of the expense of the chassis, and the costly system that serves as the base. It can really be an unforgiving market.”
“Envisioning that our customers were Pokemon fans and maybe new to arcade games, we decided to forego the usual buttons-and-joystick approach common to arcade games, and opted for a controller people would be familiar with from home gaming, with the D-Pad, four buttons, and the L and R buttons……..When they visit an arcade and see this controller, even those who play at home-which is now the trend-might just think ‘I can play this one’.”
