Pokken Tournament Will Have A Location Test At Dave & Buster’s In US

Dave & Buster’s, the American restaurant and entertainment business, has confirmed that they will be holding location tests for Pokken Tournament. The news was revealed during a Reddit Ask Me Anything thread during which Kevin Bachus, Senior Vice President of Entertainment & Game Strategy at Dave & Buster’s, stated that they will be testing the Pokemon based fighter at their outlets.

Yes. We will be testing Pokken. Candidly both NAMCO and I are more optimistic about that title and our typical guests than Tekken.

Thanks to those who sent this in.

                  1. I think it’s actually “Teach pokemon to understand the power that’s inside”. Some people hear “each”, myself included, but “teach” makes a lot more sense.

                    1. Pokemon Trainer Blue

                      The correct word from the theme song is Each. Capturing each Pokemon to understand their power is the idea.

                    1. No, it’s a lot easier to translate the arcade cabinet because it’s a machine that is built for the game. If they were to do that, they’d have to either port or recreate the game for Wii U.
                      Also it helps promote growth because not everybody who would play and enjoy this game has a Wii U yet.

                    2. Amazing Choice. Choosing to have an english release of Pokken to be in a specific arcade within one chain of a specific restaurant. Can they make it any more “Easier” to reach to people that would love to play it?
