Bandai Namco developing a Pokémon fighting game


8:40 AM on 08.26.2014



The Pokémon Company just announced Pokkén Tournament, a fighting game developed by Bandai Namco and the Tekken team.

The announcement came via livestream, with The Pokémon Company president Tsunekazu Ishihara and Namco's Katsuhiro Harada revealing the title is coming first to Japanese arcades sometime next year.

This must be the "shocking" new Pokémon announcement.
