Bandai Namco has recently updated the Japanese website for Pokkén Tournament with new information about the arcade game’s Wii U release, including a Wii U-exclusive campaign mode as well as other game modes and features. The single player campaign is called the Ferrum League, and it takes place in the brand new Ferrum region, a place where trainers and their Pokémon are linked by items called Resonance Stones. In this mode, you can beat stages in one of four ranks (the Green, Blue, Red, and Chrome Leagues) to unlock new support Pokémon and battle areas.

The Wii U version of the game also features exclusive trainers to battle who are tougher to beat than other trainers, such as Travis and his Garchomp, Keith and his Suicune, and Erin with her Braixen. The game also features at least four other game modes in addition to the Ferrum League. In Practice Mode, you can hone your fighting skills without having to worry about any time limits or health; in Free Training mode you can “freely train” for battles, and Combo Dojo mode will teach you how to use various combos for your Pokémon. There is also the My Town mode, which allows players to customize their character’s appearance and clothing by spending an in-game currency called PokéGold. In
Pokkén, players can customize their character by changing their gender, skin color, hair, and more.

The update also included a fresh set of screenshots for the game, which you can check out in the gallery below!

Our Verdict

Elijah Holt
Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
