Here’s a new Pokken Tournament video featuring Pikachu doing a bit of lucha libre wrestling.

Called Masked Pikachu in the game, the cute little yellow critter dons the persona of a luchador and pulls off the typically agile and acrobatic moves Mexican wrestlers are known for. Pure showmanship it is, expect in this case, Pikachu really puts the hurting on Charizard and others.

Pokken Tournament will be released globally on Wii U during spring 2016. The game is currently available in Japanese arcades and being tested at select Dave & Busters locations in the US.
