Little is known about Shadow Mewtwo's moves, but you can see some gameplay footage of the character from the Pokken Tournament's Japanese arcade version here. That footage emerged last week, and up until now, it was unclear if Shadow Mewtwo would be exclusive to the arcade version.

First revealed in 2014 for Japanese arcades, Pokken Tournament has since been confirmed to launch on Wii U in 2016. The game is in development at Tekken studio Bandai Namco.

Development on the project is being overseen by veteran producer Katsuhiro Harada, who says the goal for the game is for it to appeal to all Pokemon fans. "Whether you are a causal player, a regular player, or a hardcore player, anyone who likes Pokemon can have fun," Harada said.
