It’s been over two months since the Pokémon fighting game Pokkén Tournament launched on Wii U, and almost a year since the game released in Japanese arcades. In a recent interview with Famitsu, the game’s developers stated that they have received mostly positive reactions about Pokkén from gamers in Japan and other parts of the world since launch, with only a few negative reactions. They also stated that many players have asked them to “keep raising the franchise,” which game director and producer Katsuhiro Harada took to mean that players want them to add more Pokémon to the game; he stated that players also want them to continue managing the user base and holding events.

Here’s the full translated summary:

About one month has passed since Pokken Tournament was released for Wii U. Reactions from inside and outside Japan have been mostly positive with only a few negatives.

Many of the comments from players are along the lines of “please keep raising this franchise”, which according to Harada has two meanings. The first is to add more Pokemon (which Harada laughed at), while the second one is to continue managing the user base and hold events in the long term.

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]
