Poken Logo

It’s exactly what it sounds like: Pokemon meets Tekken.

The Pokemon Company has announced Pokken Tournament!  Just like it sounds, it’s a new fighting game being developed by Bandai Namco’s Tekken team, and it features Pokemon themselves.

It’s a Tekken tournament for Pokemon.

The lead producers of Tekken and Souls Calibur, Katsuhiro Harada and Masaaki Hoshino will be working on the project.  The game is currently planned for arcade machines, and no news on either a western release or if the game will arrive on consoles at all.

Pokken Tournament will be arriving in Japan arcades next year.  Meanwhile, check out the first look trailer below:
