Bandai Namco and Nintendo are Trying to Make America Great Again
While Donald wanted to build a giant wall at the Mexican border, Bandai Namco and Nintendo are one step ahead and have effectively created a digital wall around the entire North American region. I guess they are too trying to make America great again.
The company released a new update for its Tekken inspired Pokken Tournament that isolated players of the region. The update isolated the region and blocked players from matchmaking with users from other countries. A digital dome or wall is created around America and its Pokken Tournament players.
Pokken Tournament update 1.2 is out now for Wii U and was released to deal with a certain issue but created an entirely new one. So you may be wondering why this has happened.
The patch released to fix an issue with Shadow Mewtwo. However, now Shadow Mewtwo in this region is different from the rest of the world. The Light Pillar move acts different on both sides so the system isn’t able to process the data properly, which locks out players from matchmaking with the rest of the world.
I’m sure Nintendo and Bandai Namco will sort this out with a hotfix soon. However, there doesn’t seem to be a workaround for this problem for the time being.
