Game Director and Chief Producer of a number of acclaimed fighting games, Katsuhiro Harada, has confirmed via Twitter that Pokken Tournament won’t be limited to Fighting Type Pokemon. Harada wouldn’t reveal any more than that, but hopefully we will get more details about the arcade based title in the near future.
Namco Bandai has announced that Pokemon: Battle Nine will be coming to Japanese arcades Pokemon: Battle Nine sees players capturing iconic Pokemon on a grid based system. The games concept seems as though it will be a sure-fire success in Japan, but there’s no word as to whether Pokemon: Battle Nine will come to the west.

Nintendo and Namco Bandai have announced that they have teamed up together to bring Mario Kart back to arcades in Japan. The new Mario Kart game is titled Mario Kart: Arcade GP DX, and is due for release in Japan sometime later this year. Mario Kart: Arcade GP DX appears to take inspiration from recent Mario Kart titles including Mario Kart 7, as it also includes gliders. Other modes listed by Namco Bandai include a single-player Grand Prix mode, two-player Co-op, “Clone Battle” mode and a competitive mode, which will support up to four players.
