Pokken Tournament finally announces the Japan release date for the highly anticipated arcade machine, which will hit Japanese arcades on 16th July, and they have added Charizard and Weavile to the fighting roster just in time for the release!
The launch will be covered by a Nico Nico live stream, filmed from Lazona Kawasaki Plaza (6pm-8:30pm Tokyo Time), the same mall that held an event for the game earlier this year. With this, it announced the two new fighters (Charizard and Weavile) and two new support characters as well - Jirachi and Whimsicott - who will be available as support characters for those who use their Bandai Namco Passport Card before July 31.
