Next Character for Wii U Fighting Game Pokken Tournament Revealed


As was reported last week, Bandai Namco has revealed another playable monster in Pokkén Tournament, the upcoming Pokémon fighting game for Wii U. This time, Grass-type Ruby and Sapphire starting Pokémon Sceptile jumps into the fray.

Take a look at the gameplay video below to see the creature do battle against other iconic Pokemon, including Pikachu and Charizard.

Note, however, that this is a Japanese trailer. We’ll add the English version when it’s available.

Sceptile marks the 12th Pokémon confirmed for the title, joining the likes of Lucario, Machamp, Pikachu, Pikachu Libre, Weavile, Gengar, Suicune, Gardevoir, Charizard, Shadow Mewtwo, and fellow Ruby/Sapphire starter Blaziken. As you’d expect, Sceptile primarily uses plant-based attacks in combat, and can even Mega Evolve into Mega Sceptile in the midst of a battle.

Pokken Tournament is going to launch in spring 2016 for Wii U. The game is in development at Tekken studio Bandai Namco. Are you looking forward to the Pokémon/Tekken hybrid? Let us know in the comments!
