One of the most anticipated new games for Wii U in 2016 has received a release date, and it’s coming soon.
Pokkén Tournament, the upcoming game that lets players battle as prized Pokémon in fighting arenas, will launch exclusively for Wii U on March 18 at a suggested retail price of $59.99. Pokkén Tournament brings high-definition game play and over-the-top action to never-before-seen battles between some of the most recognizable Pokémon characters. People that buy the first production run version of the game will also receive a special Shadow Mewtwo amiibo card, which can be tapped to the Wii U GamePad controller to unlock the Shadow Mewtwo playable character in the game.
The first glimpses of this game during a Pokémon presentation created an absolute fervor for this game, even before its official announcement. A few simple images sparked speculation that later turned out to be Pokkén Tournament, which started out as an arcade game in Japan, and is now a Wii U-exclusive coming in a couple of months.
Is Pokkén Tournament one of your most anticipated games of 2016? Will you be picking it up when it launches in March? How big do you think it can actually be–compared to other fighters on the market?
As always, gaming is meant to be fun, so keep gaming!!
