The Pokemon arcade fighting game is coming to the Wii U

Pokkén Tournament — a Pokemon-themed fighting game that was previously only available in Japanese arcades — is coming to the Wii U, the Pokemon Company announced today. Though based on the popular Nintendo franchise, the game is being made by Bando Namco, with key producers from the Tekken and Soulcalibur series on board; it's a 3D fighter where various Pokemon battle one-on-one, so you can finally see if Pikachu can beat up Charizard. There's no word on how the new Wii U version differs from its arcade counterpart, but it's expected to arrive on Nintendo's home console next spring.
