What the what?!

The Pokémon Company and BANDAI NAMCO Games are teaming up for a new arcade Pokémon game called POKKÉN TOURNAMENT. As the name implies, this appears to be a portmanteau of Tekken and Pokémon – although I highly doubt that Heihachi Mishima is going to powerbomb Squirtle at any point. No, instead this will be some kind of tournament fighting game featuring all your favorite pocket monsters.

I can’t wait… oh. it’s for Japan only. Well, maybe it’ll come State-side for the Wii U? Until then, fans will have to jealously salivate over this conceptual video and curse the day that they weren’t born in Japan.

No word about any release so keep alert for more info later.
