Pokken Tournament revealed to have test locations in the US
by Denis Ricardo (@deniricardo)
Kevin Bachus, Senior VP of Dave & Busters, revealed on Monday that Pokken Tournament will have a US test release at the arcade/restaurant chain during a Reddit AMA.
Pokken Tournament is a 2D fighter developed by NAMCO with the roster of fighters consisting of Pokémon. It has recently been released in Japanese arcades, but prior to Kevin Bachus’ Reddit AMA, there was no word about a release outside of Japan to arcades. Based on the unique control scheme, it has been theorized that the game will see a console release outside of Japan for the Wii U.
Bachus didn’t reveal much, but he said that both he and NAMCO are “…more optimistic about that title and our typical guests than Tekken.”
No word has been made on date of release at Dave & Busters or if it will be tested in select locations.
