Ever wonder what the Pokemon do when their trainers aren't around? Well you're in luck, because today Nintendo announced Pokken Tournament, an arena beat 'em up battle game featuring your favorite Pokemon companions. Now you can pummel your fellow pocket monsters to your heart's content without that pesky trainer hanging around telling you how to move.
The game will allow you to learn the fighting styles of a variety of Pokemon and pit them against eachother in intense although probably adorable combat. Pokken Tournament will be Amiibo compatible since it's releasing on the WiiU and 3DS, and will come with a Shadow MewTwo Amiibo card -- because, you know, regular MewTwo isn't intense enough.
While I love me some Pokemon, and this is probably the only kind of fighting game I would enjoy, it still seems weird that we encounter an entire new genre of animals and constantly just want to pit them against each other. It's a very first world reaction to what amounts to finding cuddly aliens on our doorstep. Granted, I might be overthinking this so early in the morning. Anything is possible.
Pokken Tournament releases March 18th for WiiU and Nintendo 3DS, and will be compatible with many of your already purchased Amiibo figures. Personally, I can't wait to see how Yarn Yoshi stands up to Charizard. It's going to be epic.
