Pokken Tournament hits Wii U on March 18

When your hunger is Pokken at you

Just last night we heard about Chandelure joining the cast of fighters in Pokkén Tournament, which immediately increases my interest in the title. Sure, it makes sense for Lucario and Machamp to be fighters in the game, but a ghost chandelier? Now I’m listening.

Anyway, Nintendo let us know today to expect the title to hit Wii U on March 18, shortly after some of the other 20th anniversary celebrations for the Pokémon franchise, including the 3DS rerelease of the original Red, Blue, and Yellow games. The Wii U Pokkén Tournament Pro Pad should be out around the same time too, for any who got used to the arcade controller.
