Harada: Pokken Tournament won't feature high/low mix-ups or Tekken guest characters as it's a completely different game

Shortly after his appearance on the Pokken Tournament announcement livestream earlier today, Bandai Namco Games's Katsuhiro Harada took to Twitter to respond to fans' questions and messages.

In his responses to these questions, Harada addressed a number of notable things that I'm sure a good many of us were left wondering about ever since news of the game's announcement broke earlier this morning.

Things such as whether or not there would be Tekken guest characters appearing in Pokken Tournament, or if non-humanoid or non-fighting-type Pokemon would enter the roster as playable characters.

Find out the answer to those questions, and more in our translation of the prompt Q&A on Twitter.

Capcom suing Koei Tecmo for $9.43 million, claims patent infringement in 50 titles

Just on the back of SNK filing a criminal lawsuit against Square Enix, Capcom has now thrown its legal hat in the ring against Tecmo for patent infringement.

According to a report by Sankei, Capcom is suing Tecmo for patent infringement found in Samurai Warriors: Xtreme Legends and 49 other titles. The company is looking to acquire a total of about 980 million yen (roughly $9.43 million USD) from the lawsuit.

The exact nature of the patent is a bit vague. It seems as though Capcom is actually referring to the concept of expansion packs. Apparently, the suit was filed in 2002 for a function that allows you to add new content by combining an existing game with another piece of software.

Fully grasp the nature of unblockables using Hitbox Viewer – Another RyuApprentice video that dives deep into the mechanics of USF4

While everyone has an opinion on unblockables, do they know how and why they exist? Fortunately, RyuApprentice saves the day with another excellent video, this time showing how unblockables as a bi-product of the space a character occupies on the screen to avoid phasing.

Check below to watch RyuApprentice's explanation.

Pokken Tournament fighting game announced, developed by Bandai Namco under Katsuhiro Harada's supervision, slated for 2015

The new Pokemon game that The Pokemon Company has been teasing is a new fighting game developed by Bandai Namco Games, it was announced on a livestream this morning (night time in Japan).

Pokken Tournament is said to be developed under the supervision of Tekken Project series director Katsuhiro Harada and Soulcalibur series producer and main programmer Masaaki Hoshino.

Not much else is known for now, except that Pokken Tournament will head to Japanese arcades sometime in 2015.

A teaser trailer for the game was also released today. Although the game appears to be a 3D fighter in the same vein as Tekken, we find it very interesting that Pokken Tournament's gameplay will feature projectiles (Lucario's fireball) and jump attacks.

Check out the video below.

When it comes to fighting games, often times the most highly debated topic you will ever encounter is: who are the best characters in the game?

In order to calculate this average score we simply took the raw tier score for each character and divided that by the number of characters on their respective game's roster.

Below you will find a list of the four worst characters, with both raw tier score / average tier score, and a few statistics showing how much these characters are used.

SNK Playmore registers trademarks for The Last Blade, The King of Fighters, Maximum Impact, Athena Asamiya - hints of new titles?

20 years ago, on August 25, 1994, the fighting game genre was irrevocably changed when SNK released The King of Fighters '94 for its MVS arcade system.

KOF94 was the first fighting game ever to feature characters from various different titles crossing over into the same universe for an epic dream battle -- an idea that would later make its way into other major fighting games franchises, including Capcom's Vs. series, Super Smash Bros., and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

Today marks the 20th anniversary of SNK Playmore's KOF franchise. Unfortunately, it looks like the fighting games maker has nothing to announce on this momentous occasion.

But it isn't complete radio silence on the SNK fighting games' front; today the trademark_bot Twitter account has uncovered a number of noteworthy trademark registration filings that SNK Playmore has recently made.

Earlier this morning we posted some videos that lend a lot of credence to the leaked roster list and info for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS rumors -- but that's not all.

This rabbit hole just keeps getting deeper. The leakers have now also posted a giant gallery of off-screen images showing numerous different aspects of the game: menus, modes of play, stills of characters and even trophies.

At this point it's hard to believe that someone would go through all this trouble to doctor up a bunch of images and videos for the purpose of perpetuating a fake list.

But until they've been 100% confirmed, we're marking these leaked images and info as rumors for now.
