Pokkén Tournament is one of the Wii U's biggest releases this year, with the fighting title escaping arcades to arrive on the home console with extra modes and content. It's not far away from its 18th March release date, either, and Nintendo is keen to build the hype.
Nintendo's official channels have released the CGI intro movie from the game, which naturally introduces various characters, shows off locations and also has some anime-style goodness. If the thought of popular 'mon fighting in new ways floats your boat, this is designed to get you hyped for the real action.
Check it out below and let us know what you think.
As if my hype levels couldn't get any higher. They're... OVER 9000!!! (Sorry for the use of an outdated and horrible meme)
Braixen should really watch his/her language at 0:55.
I like the part where Garchomp destroyed Braxien's stick. Nice comedic touch.
@Krisi I'm not the only person that noticed that! Thank goodness!
@Krisi I thought the exact same thing.
I'm ready to throw my money at it!
Surely this will shift some wiius
@sandman89 should certain help shift some but not enough it deserves. I get the feeling it's going to get a kicking by reviewers who are expecting Tekken with pokemon
I was thinking of buying... then I saw the $75 CAD price tag.
Aww man and I just brought my hype level down to a patient laid-back level.
Gotta love that HD Suicune!
@Krisi I didn't notice the first time but now you mention it I can't stop laughing
Great trailer, although it kind of makes the game look more like Pokemon Stadium than a fighting game. Really looking forward to this. I'll be playing as Pikachu and Suicune for starters.
/rattles the bars on the cage
HURRY UP HURRY HURRY! The first console Pokemon I've wanted in over 10 years omgomgomg.
@Tsurii @Zanark Well at least I'm not the only one who said trailer
That was... severely underwhelming for me. And I dunno why.
Still getting it. But... yeah.
Not sure how I feel about this game since I don't dabble in too many fighting games other than Smash though I do enjoy Killer Instinct on Xbox One every now and then. Doubt I will get it since I am covered right now in terms of fighting games, that could change though the game itself looks pretty darn solid but I am not too confident on the amount of content featured in the game because based on what they have stated it seems rather bare bones compared to other fighting games. Too each their own though!
@ikki5 I feel you, since the CAD plummeted games have just gotten a little too expensive. This looks like a great game but $75+tx is getting a little to close to $90 and that's just insane. That being said I'll probably end up getting it anyways, but it will hurt.
@RoomB31 well, what I find even more strange, is when games went to $69.99, the dollar was less than it is now. Now they bumped the price up another $5 with a higher dollar
Awesome intro, I can see why they posted it on youtube, it's perfect to raise the hype!
This game won me over with the coverage in the last couple weeks. Now I not only have it preordered, but am debating ordering the special gamepad!!
@TTGlider I'm still in two minds about the controller. I'm going to see what I think of the game first though before I take the plunge.
Nice CGI, really loving the textures for the fur and skin on the Pokemon.
I'm almost surprised the Wii U can even handle this GC trailer...
Even if I only played this for a total of ten hours in my entire life, that only works out to less than $8/hr of entertainment. Let's see: one starbucks latte costs me $7.10 after tax, which means this game will cost about 11 coffees.
It also costs less than one sweater, less than three movies with a popcorn combo, less than a dinner out (which doesn't even include the cost of drinks) ... Yup, it has low value because the content is "Too low for money "
Got my reserve in yesterday can't wait looks fantastic .
@adam9431 Glad to see I'm not the only one that uses coffee cups as a currency unit.
