What surprises me is that it took this long for Nintendo to think of such a collaboration.

I would much prefer this be a 2D fighter, but namco only knows how to make 3d fighting games.

Ok, gotta go back in time and tell my 10 year old self this is indeed happening within' my lifetime.

Seriously, the Tekken guys doing a Pokemon fighter? No amount of cynicism can take away how cool this is.

Looks interesting for me, as long as it's as polished and fun as your typical Tekken or Pokemon.

Wii U version ? Don't say Nintendo are going to shoot themselves in the foot with this one.

Well, they heard people wanted a pokemon action game, just left out the meat and potatoes of what made pokemon great... 

(and I never was a fan of these types of fighting games anyways. Too much move memorization and lack of depth)


I can still hope for an action rpg style pokemon eventually...

@sonyonly4 pretty much all japanese fighting games get an arcade release first. don't freak out just yet.
