Pokkén Creators Wanted To Make Pokémon Look 'Really Realistic' For Their Fighting Game

Yesterday, Kotaku published part of an interview with Katsuhiro Harada and Masaaki Hoshino, producers of Pokkén Tournament. Masaaki Hoshino reveals that he wanted from the start that the Pokémon looked realistic. He had to convince not only the staff working on the game, but also The Pokémon Company.

As for Katsuhiro Harada, he was surprised to see that some of the Tekken signature moves actually fit the Pokémon pretty well, which is why there’s a few of them hidden in the game. Since Pokémon and human have totally different bone structures, he didn’t think they would fit at all… but they did!

It's a shame this is only on Wii u. It'll be a very long time before I purchase another Nintendo product.

It's a Pokemon game. What else do you expect it to be on except Wii U or 3DS?

Ninty needs to adapt this type of battle for Sun&Moon.

nah. Mainline Pokemon game won't change the formula but they do need to change how the battle area look or at least show the trainer in the background.
