Pokken Tournament Coming to WiiU

When Pokken Tournament, the Pokemon fighting game (think Tekken rather than more traditional turn based Pokemon) was announced for Japanese arcades, fans crossed their fingers for a western release. Fast forward to August, just a month after Japan’s July 15th release of Pokken Tournament, an announcement trailer was shown promising an international release for the WiiU in 2016.

See the trailer below (Note that the gameplay footage is from the arcade version of the game):
