A short talk about pokken
1: To the people saying “I hope it comes out on consoles” Stop hoping. All non american fighting out in arcade first (or at least the same time as the console version). It will be on WiiU later.
2: To the people saying “I hope it comes out on PC” Its a namco fighting game AND a NINTENDO game. Just give up like right now. Quit. You’ll be better for it.
3: To people saying “I hope it will come out in America” Its a fucking pokemon fighting game OF COURSE it will come out in America. We’re not talking about Daemon Bride. Jeez. We have translated fightin games lately that aboslutly no one thought was likely to come in english (Aquapazza and Under Night in Birth)
4: To people asking about about Pikachu or whatever pokemon you want. Odds are if its not bipedal, or if it has really tiny limbs (like pikachu) It probably won’t be in the game. Its really hard to make enough normals for more animal like characters especially if there’s more than one, and its not Smash where every character only needs 4 ground normal attacks and 4 air ones. So stuff like pikachu? Unlikely. The game is very likely to be majority fighting types and any pokemon that are human enough in structure.
(the last one is mostly speculation)
(edit, my speculation was wrong. Pokken confirmed to have accomplished having non humaniod pokemon by getting rid of the fighting game staple of High/low mixups)
