Pokken Tournament has been confirmed for a not only a western release on Wii U, but a global one at that.

The news was announced by The Pokemon Company during the Pokemon World Championships in Boston.

A European trademark for Pokken Tournament popped up yesterday, pretty much confirming today’s news.

Currently available in Japanese arcade and being tested at select Dave & Busters locations in the US, the Wii U version will be published by Namco Bandai and is set for release in Spring 2016.
