This 18th March release is for both Europe and North America, which is excellent news.
It's the season for silly game delay rumours, and thankfully one can now be put to bed with a nice cup of cocoa. Pokkén Tournament is confirmed to be coming to Europe on 18th March, making it a welcome addition to the first quarter of the year on Wii U.
Nintendo of Europe has confirmed the news, though at the time of writing there's no equivalent date for North America.
It's been a fun week for fans following the fighting game, with announcements of new fighters in the roster and details on some of the included modes that we can expect.
We'll look out for a release date in North America, but in the meantime are you European Wii U owners excited by this news?
