The Monthly Famitsu feat. 2015 January Edition (月刊ファミ通feat.2015年1月号) aired today on NicoNico and it featured new information on the ポッ拳 POKKÉN TOURNAMENT game.


New Information:

  • Playable Characters: Pikachu, Lucario (Mega Lucario), Sirknight (Mega Sirknight), Suicune and Kairiky
  • Players can have support Pokémon and they can be chosen at a Support Set Select screen before each match
  • Supports Sets showcased are: Emonga/Fokko and Tsutarja/Laplace
  • Unlike traditional arcade fighting games that use a stick, POKKÉN TOURNAMENT has its own controller that uses a D-pad with X, Y, A, B and L and R buttons.
  • Button Controls: D-pad to move, A for Pokémon Skill, B for Jump, X for Weak Attack, Y for Strong Attack, L for Pokémon Support, R for Guard
  • As you fill the gauge, you'll enter Resonance burst (共鳴バースト) mode, where you can fire off a Burst Attack (バーストアタック) capable of dealing great amounts of damage
  • Modes: Inter-Store Play Mode (店内対戦モード) features VS CPU or PvP, National Battle (全国対戦モード) and Inter-Arcade Play Mode (店舗間対戦). A Tutorial mode is also available. Cabinets from different arcades are all connected online, so players can fight people all over Japan rather than just people at the same arcade.

Test Locations

There will be a few locations that people will be able to test the game in Japan at the end of January 2015 and early February 2015. It will cost 100yen per play.


The Namco Umeda (namco梅田店) and Namco Lazona Kawasaki (namcoラゾーナ川崎店) locations will have the game on January 30th, 31st and February 1st, 2015. Children under the age of 16 are unable to participate in the test game. The first 200 people each day to answer a questionnaire will receive a Lucario (January 30th), Sirknight (January 31st) or Pikachu (February 1st) Bana passport card.


At the JAEPO2015 Japan Amusement Expo at Makuhari Messe, the game will also be available and the first 500 people to answer the questionnaire on February 14th, 2015 will receive a Kairiky Bana passport card (バナパスポートカード).
