Pokken Tournament International Release is Under Consideration, Says Harada
Katsuhiro Harada has made quite a name for himself through the famous Tekken franchise and now he is working with Bandai Namco and The Pokemon Company to develop a combination of Tekken and Pokemon title called Pokken Tournament.
Since the announcement, the people outside of Japan were wondering if this new title will be making its way outside the country. To answer this question, Harada took to twitter and said that he is considering the international release of the upcoming title.

In another tweet, he answered a question which asked, whether the game is going to feature a 1v1 or tag team matches.

As for now, Pokken Tournament is scheduled to release in Japanese arcades sometime in 2015 and after that we can expect the game to launch in other regions as well, if the developers decided on it.
The game is also expected to make its way to Nintendo’s Wii U, which is when I think the game will be officially released in other regions.
