This is vaguely the same footage of Pokkén Tournament we've seen over the past couple weeks, but it's a direct capture of the game, so what the hell. Good recap of the current roster, though do note that the voice over and text are in Japanese. Long way to go before this'll get localized.

When Q*Bert Rebooted does a weird little hop thing over to PS4, PS3, and Vita, it'll evoke two different thoughts from its prospective audience. Old-timers won't be able to recall everything looking so smooth. Youngins ... read
Infinite nest Pix is a mix of the two most saccharine basic emoticons, :3 and ^_^, a face for the forgotten mascot age. Just too cute, and not in a way that ever betrays the fiendish score-chaser underneath. Sincere cuteness. A real testam... read feature

I've always had a soft spot for Tekken. Although the name doesn't carry as much weight these days, I still get excited at the prospect of playing as Yoshimitsu or another classic character while I pick up the new systems.
