Gengar Announced As Playable Character In Pokkén Tournament

Pokkén Tournament is a mash-up game of Tekken with Pokémon characters. Developed by Bandai Namco in collaboration with The Pokémon Company, it’s set to release in Japanese arcades this Summer. Although it hasn’t been confirmed, we can probably bet that it will eventually arrive on the Wii U at some point at least. You’ll be able to play as characters like Pikachu, Suicune, Gardevoir and, as just announced, Gengar. Check out the trailer and see what you think, it’s a pretty clever concept and definitely worth keeping an eye out for! Will you be crossing your fingers for Pokkén Tournament to release on the Wii U? What Pokémon would you most like to play as?

A brand new Pokemon application for mobile devices has been announced for Japan. The new app is called the Pokemon Music Pokedex which allows you to purchase a variety of Pokemon music from Pokemon Red & Green onwards. You initially get three free tracks and the rest you need to fork out for. These will cost 120¥ a piece. What’s interesting is the design of the application which looks like a classic Pokedex. It also allows you to add in the sound effects of PokeBalls, Pokemon cries or item use during the play of music.
