There's a new Pokémon game! It's an action fighting game. For arcades. In Japan. I bet the internet has something to say about that.

As previously reported, The Pokémon Company roped in Namco Bandai, the makers of Tekken, for the arcade game. It's called Pokkén Tournament and will be out next year in Japan. And while we might not see Tekken characters, we will see lots of Pocket Monsters beating the crap outta each other in Japanese arcades.

Well, internet, let's see what your online comrades think.
