Pokkén Tournament heading to Wii U
Pokkén Tournament, which has been in Japanese arcades for just over a month, is now slated for a worldwide Wii U release in Spring 2016. The arcade game, which was developed by Bandai Namco, attempts to blend classic fighting game mechanics in with the popular Pokémon franchise. Since the game’s initial release announcement for arcades, many have speculated that this unique fighter will make its way overseas and onto the Wii U. The roster for the Wii U title will also expand with Pikachu Libre, which is exactly what it sounds like: Pikachu in a Lucha costume.
You can watch the announcement trailer above.

Not sure how I feel about this as I didn’t keep up with all the new pokemons they came out with. If it was the first 151 I think I would be more excited and a definite day one purchase.
