Namco Bandai is developing Pokkén Tournament (ポッ拳トーナメント), and the Japanese title has the character “ken” (拳) from Tekken (鉄拳).
"Whether you are a casual player, a regular player or a hardcore player, anyone who likes Pokémon can have fun," said Namco’s Katsuhiro Harada. The head of the Tekken Team said that Pokkén Tournament is actually “closer to an action game.” He added that Namco used its “know how” to develop the game.
According to SoulCalibur producer Masaaki Hoshino, “For adult Pokémon fans, because we got our best developers, we made the best graphics, and created the best action game, so please! Please look forward to this!”
