Pokkén Tournament Japanese release date and Wii U bundle announced

Pokkén Tournament will be coming to Japan on March 18, 2016, with a Wii U bundle that includes a home edition of the arcade controller.

The latest trailer confirms the release date of March 18, so the western release shouldn't be too long after that.

There's also a reminder at the end for the Shadow Mewtwo amiibo card.

The Pokkén Tournament Wii U bundle includes both the game and the amiibo card, as well as the special controller, which you can take a gander at below, that's based on the arcade version.

Four more pokémon have also been added to the roster - Rotom, Togekiss, Dragonite, and Victini.

Pokkén Tournament is slated for a Spring 2016 release in the west. We'll keep you posted if there are any more updates.
