Learn how to play Pokken Tournament with this instructional video

Helpful even if you don’t know Japanese

I think Pokken Tournament is pretty easy to pick up, and within a few sessions of playing it in arcades I had the hang of it. But if you haven’t been able to take the trip out to Japan to experience it, this video is the next best thing.

It basically gives you a quick rundown of its directional attack system (think Smash and you’re on the level), as well as a few mechanics like assists and specials. It’s in Japanese, but there’s plenty of prompts that literally show you which buttons are being pressed.

Pokken will be released worldwide on March 18, 2016.
