You've gotta give the developers of Pokkén Tournament credit, they've kept the game going for quite some time post-release with new characters. Though the Wii U version hasn't really gotten the benefit of receiving these new fighters, their existence in the arcade version mean that there's always a chance that an update might go out patching some of them in. Earlier this week, it was announced that a new fighter would be revealed later on, and the day has finally come.

Empoleon is the new fighter, which likely doesn't come as a surprise to many. Data-miners found information in an earlier update of the game which indicated that Empoleon would be coming at some point in the future, so now they've obviously decided to follow through.There's no footage of Empoleon in action at the time, but it's likely there'll be a trailer in the next few days.

What do you think? Will the Wii U version ever get the new fighters? Who else do you think would be a good candidate? Share your thoughts in the comments below
