News has emerged today that the Pokemon Company has filed a trademark for the Pokemon beat-em-up, Pokken Tournament, in Europe. The trademark covers a number of things including the name, television programs, tournaments and board games. NFC functionality is also mentioned, which includes facilitating the transmission and recording and exchange of video game content. All in all the news doesn’t seem too surprising as it is no doubt going to be a popular title if it does indeed reach the west. Now we just need a release date! Hopefully we shall hear more about a western release for Pokken Tournament at the 2015 Pokemon World Championships which is happening this weekend in Boston.
