Finally, a game where you can battle Pokémon

Last week Nintendo teased a “shocking” Pokémon announcement to occur on Tuesday. Today was that Tuesday, Bison was in Belgium*, and the shocking new game was in fact announced. Pokken Tournament, a fighting game in the Tekken engine (oh I see what they did!) is being developed by Bandai Namco and slated to hit Japanese arcades sometime next year. The announcement came with a short trailer showing Machokeamp [Note: dammit!] and Smash Bros. veteran and Vegas-odds favorite Lucario beating the shit out of each other, which is embedded below.

###### \*Kudos to the two of you who got that one.
