Who has the better figure: Street Fighter 4 'bishoujo' Juri Han, or Kasumi from Dead or Alive 5?

This week, pre-orders have started for not one, but two new character figures that are based on fighting game franchises.

First up, Street Fighter 4's Juri Han is the latest character to receive Kotobikiya's 'Bishoujo' figure series treatment, which features designs from famed Japanese illustrator Shunya Yamashita. He also did the box art for Tekken Hybrid, and some of the character art panels in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

5 Pokémon that should be playable in Pokkén Tournament

Earlier this week Bandai Namco announced a new Pokemon-themed fighting game called Pokkén Tournament. So far, the 3D title's confirmed characters consist of Lucario, Machamp, and Blaziken.

Although the aforementioned pocket monsters are all fighting types, Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada -- who is overseeing the new project -- confirmed that we can expect to see Pokemon of varying types in the upcoming fighter. He also stated that with the current capabilities of the development team, theoretically, they could create any Pokémon from the franchise, even those that are not bipedal.

With that in mind, we have taken it upon ourselves to create a top 5 list of characters we'd like to see playable in Pokkén Tournament. Based on what Mr. Harada said, all Pokémon are fair game. We definitely have some interesting choices for you here today.

You'll find our choices below.

Pokken Tournament will not feature only Fighting-type Pokémon, Katsuhiro Harada confirms

With the announcement of Pokken Tournament yesterday, and the only three Pokémon being officially confirmed (Lucario, Machamp and Blaziken) all being of the Fighting typing, voices of concern were raised that non-Fighting Pokémon might not make it into the roster.

Those fears have been quelled by the ever-reassuring Katsuhiro Harada himself, however, today on Twitter. To see exactly what one of our favourite fighting game producers wrote, look below.

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.

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.
