Thanks to Amazon we now know that Pokken Tournament’s launch date isn’t the only thing shared between regions. The North American box art for the title is nearly identical to the Japanese version. The only notable difference is the glaring promotion of the Shadow Mewtwo amiibo card that comes with the game. You can view the North American cover below. You can pick up the game worldwide on March 18th.
It’s not the biggest or the best box-art all of all-time, but Nintendo Japan have revealed what would appear to be the final box-art for Pokken Tournament.

The beat-em-up is due to be released on March 18th 2016 in Japan and sometime during the spring in the west. What do you think to the box-art?
