Pokken Tournament is coming to Wii U in 2016

Officially official

Pokken Tournament is the talk of the town — the only issue is that basically everyone outside of Japan can’t play it. Until 2016 that is, as Nintendo has just announced that Pokken is coming to the Wii U worldwide next spring.

This news comes by way of the Pokemon World Championships, which are currently underway in Boston right now. Oh, and Pikachu Libre is totally a thing now.

Um, is it 2016 yet?
