New Pokemn game Pokken Tournament announced

 

The Pokemon company took to YouTube today to show off a first look trailer of a brand new Pokemon fighting game that is expected to be released in 2015. There was an image floating around and rumors about the game last year but today we have an official confirmation along with a trailer showing Lucario and Machamp (instead of Blaziken who was in the image that surfaced a year ago). The name Pokken is deriven from Tekken and the game is being developed as a part of a partnership between Bandai Namco and the Pokemon company. The trailer just shows off a fight between the 2 Pokemon in a grassy farm area and shows off their character models but at the very end of it there is a glimpse of Mega Lucario which probably means Mega evolutions will be a part of the game. The game is planned to be released in Japanese Arcades some time in 2015 with no word on an English release yet.
