Pokken, the Pokemon fighting game, gets new gameplay footage


Namco and Famitsu held a special preview of the much-anticipated Pokken Tournament, showing off a ton of new information and characters. The hour-long stream, moderated by Pokken producer Katsuhiro Harada, has various people duking it out in the pokemon fighting game.

The game that came to my mind after watching the footage was another fighting game produced by Namco Bandai called Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm. It seems to be borrowing the behind-the-back POV and has dynamically changing camera according to the proximity of the two characters. The health and power bars are situated in each corner of the screen with the timer sitting in the upper left corner. The roster currently consists of Pikachu, Lucario, Machamp, Suicune, and Gardevoir.

In addition to those, there will also be support characters that can be summoned as an assist. (Snivy and Lapras were few of the ones shown.) That doesn’t end there, Harada hinted at more characters to be announced at a later date!

What do you think about the game so far?
