Last chance for wishes.  I just looked outside and saw a falling star.  It streaked across the sky in a faint flash of light like the fleeting promise of a lover lost.  It gave me the chance to reflect on what my life has been, what it will be.  I thought of my childhood, that fateful Christmas morning when I awoke to find a yellow box with Pikachu on it poking out from within a red stocking.  "At last," I thought, "the children at school will taunt me no longer.  I will know what it means to be a Pokemon master, and I will do whatever it takes to be the very best."  

 

The years passed, and my days were oft filled with the familiar beeps and trills of the gameboy, gameboy color, gameboy advance, Nintendo DS, and as I sit here on my lunch break at work, my 3DS is in sleep mode in my locker.  Waiting to be awakened for the chance to continue a journey I first began those years ago.  In my youth I've found sad days and glory both wrapped up in the busy and harsh realities that we all experience, and even as I lay in bed weeping the tears of the forgotten I know I can turn over and my precious Ferrothorn will be there waiting to offer me comfort.  These friends I keep in my mind will always be there to carry me through the day in a world where mortal life fails and neglects me.  

 

There are no promises, no futures, no glorious days after the morrow's dawn to await for me.  There is only the now and what I do with it.  So I really hope it's not Pokemon Art Academy 2.

 

That, wishing star, is my request.

It's Pokken.  Pokken Tournament to be exact.  It's slated for Japanese arcades at this time with no word on future ports.  Since normally arcade games in Japan needs a half-a-year to a year for console ports, we wouldn't see anything in the west until 2016 at best.  That is if NCL/The Pokemon Company even considers sending this westward for localization.  This seems quirky enough to stay in Japan like the Mario Kart Arcade games.  =/

 

English trailer:

So yeah, Lucario's model seems to be an updated SSB Brawl model.  Mega Lucario is in the fray too.

Why do people keep saying Mario Kart Arcade stays in Japan?

 

Also, yeah it looks fun.  I don't follow the arcade market as much so I don't know who this is really for and how it will turn out, but I'd try it at least.

Anyone else find it stupid that we got an English trailer on the US Pokemon Youtube Channel, but the trailer still says at the end that it's only going to be released in Japan? Either they are planning a US release after all, or they are being bigger trolls then Sakurai on Miiverse. "Ya see this awesome game? Well tough shit, ya ain't getting it!"

Yeah, I thought that was a little weird too. I know English is somewhat common language in Japan but I figured an announcement pertaining exclusively to Japan it would include kanji(?) as well.

 

My initial reaction to this trailer was "meh," but then I started to think about Tekken's ridiculously awesome character story bits and how great it would be to apply that level of absurdity to Pokemon. Imagine Mewtwo is out for revenge for being thrown into a volcano by Giovanni; it would be fucking amazing.

Yeah... this reveal was even less "stunning" than the already non-conductive expectations I had for this announcement. We only saw 2 pokémon throughout the entire trailer--Lucario and Machamp (3 if you count Mega Luke separately). Sure, you don't have to show off the whole roster, but at least 2 more pokes wouldn't have been too bad. I mean, for fuck's sake, at least show Blaziken! They showed in the original teaser. :| The gameplay doesn't look at all interesting, either; bland as dry shit.

^This. We definitely have Mario Kart Arcade GP. I've seen them around quite a few times. I just looked it up, and apparently we also got a Mario Kart Arcade GP 2, though I don't even think I've heard of the sequel until now.

 

We also got F-Zero AX, which is quite possibly my favorite arcade game of all time. Unfortunately, a few years back, the only site I knew of which had the game had since gotten rid of it. Damnit, I even wanted to buy that shit off of them if it wasn't too retardedly expensive (which it probably is, considering how big it is; I also feared that a piece would break or malfunction [such as the simulator seat] and then I'd have an impossible time finding the necessary parts and/or repair services).

 

Anyway, I take it back. Pokken looks lame as hell, but if I'm at an arcade hall, I'll definitely be excited to play this game in arcade form. Why? Because it'll prolly be better than most of the rest of the arcade shit on the floor. That, and it'll be something new that I had heard of beforehand.

*Raises hand* Yep. My thoughts exactly. What the hell is the point? In ENGLISH, it says "PLANNED FOR ARCADE RELEASE IN JAPAN IN 2015." Okay, sound's great. LEMME BOOK MY FUCKIN' FLIGHT!

Just now got to watch the trailer. Wow. Honestly, the graphics in this game are beautiful. I love it. This seems like I would be willing to buy this game right away.

Not sure what crossover I like better--Pokken or Hyrule Warriors...

I started thinking about the roster and my mind went crazy.  There are a lot of cool fighting type Pokemon.  It'd be so much fun to finally control a Hitmonlee or see a Mienshao dance across the screen with a flurry of blows.  

 

This might be a gimmicky dumb arcade game that just sort of comes and goes, but if it turned into something bigger and worthwhile I'd really look forward to getting a copy printed on the WiiU.

These are all of them, both pure fighters and half-types. The Lopunny is only part-fighting in Mega form. That's also a Mega Medicham.. I don't recall knowing about that mega evolution, though apparently it's no secret. Lol, I might even have my own Medichamite.
