Arcades but not Wii U? Why? Nintendo better announce a wii u port of some sorts they really need a big pokemon title on consoles. Really disappointed with there decision at this point.

@mikel1015 Yes I understand and I think this May be true but this is Pokemon one of nintendo's most cherished properties. They should have announced a simultaneous release. Smash is bieng developed by the same developer and it's not going to arcades.

I think they are trying to test the waters with a new idea. But I agree that there should have been a Wii U version. Hopefully they will announce one for all regions.

There have been Pokemon arcade games in the past including "Pokemon Batterio" this is nothing new. I understand that the arcades are popular in japan but at this point Nintendo really needs to support there console now more then ever.

It's a Namco fighting game. It always, always, always goes to arcade first, then consoles later. Look at Tekken 6

The question is how long will it take to go from arcades to consoles Tekken 6 took two years..yes 2 YEARS. to hit consoles.

Game looks cool though, need to get the roster right and hopefully have some move customisation in. Could be epic for once everyone is bored of Smash. (I know this will never happen)

The king of the Poke-Fist tournament.

Namco games always hit arcades in Japan first, a Wii U version is inevitable. It's not a question of "if", but instead "when?".

I think a Wii U version will be here within a year after the arcade version.
