While we’ve been hearing plenty about the upcoming Pokemon/Tekken fighting game, Pokken Tournament, that was mostly regarding the Japanese arcade version. There was no news on a US release, or if it would be for any console.
Well, that’s all changed with today’s announcement of Pokken Tournament for the Wii U. The game will be out in Spring 2016, bringing the Pokemon battles and Tekken-style combat to gamers around the world.
In addition to that, a new fighter has been announced: Pikachu Libre. While the regular Pikachu was previously announced as a fighter, this variant uses an outfit Pikachu can wear in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, which grants it the fighting/flying-type move Flying Press.
