Pokken Tournament, the Bandai Namco Tekken-Pokemon hybrid, is being made with adults in mind. This comes by way of interviews on Imagine-Nation with The Pokemon Company’s President Tsunskazy Ishihara and Namco’s Katsuhiro Harada.
Considering that many of the people in the generation who experienced Red and Green are now nearing their thirties, and those who were in elementary school then are now in university, we aimed to make a game for those who grew up playing Pokémon—rather than just target children, The bottom line is, we want to show adults that this is the new Pokémon, and get them to play.
Adding onto that comment, Ishihara let fans know that possibility exists that Pokken Tournament will have an overseas release. However, there is no word on whether the game will be making it to our home consoles, however the games hit arcades July 16th in Japan.
