Pokken Tournament | oprainfall

Fans of Pokemon, rejoice! Why, you ask? Because the arcade game known as Pokken Tournament is shaping up to be an utterly beautiful looking game! While it has not yet been confirmed whether or not this arcade sensation is coming overseas, any fan of Pokemon will certainly find themselves hoping so after taking a gander at these.

While the visual upgrade from Black and White to X and Y was certainly a breath of fresh air, the visual leap to here is beyond incredible. Just try and savor all the loving detail each of the Pokemon shown is rendered in. Pikachu, Machamp, Gardevoir, Suicune and Lucario have never looked better. I dare say Pikachu itself looks somewhat badass and smug, not terms I usually associate with the electric rat. I also found it interesting to note the little sidebar displayed in some screens, which seems to indicate you can tagĀ out Pokemon during battle.

If this game plays half as good as it looks, it will certainly make a splash. Try and say otherwise after checking out these screenshots!

    They look kind of weird in this more realistic artstyle, and yet they look so majestic.

    I really hope this gets a Wii U port
