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.

Tekken 2: Kazuya's Revenge movie heads to theaters August 21, stars Kane Kosugi (Ryu Hayabusa from DOA: Dead or Alive)

It's been a while since we've heard anything about the new live-action Tekken film that Crystal Sky announced, supposedly a prequel to the 2010 Tekken movie.

Back in January word of a new Tekken live-action movie coming out this year first surfaced on Kane Kosugi's official blog. The Japanese actor, who played Ryu Hayabusa in the live-action Dead or Alive movie, was said to be the star in "Tekken: The Man Called X".

But this announcement was later refuted by Kosugi's management (according to SGCafe), who said that the movie Kosaugi would be starring in was something tentatively entitled "Agent X", as opposed to a Tekken film, much to the relief of Tekken Project development chief Katsuhiro Harada.

But I suppose somehow Crystal Sky was able to keep the live-action movie-making rights to Tekken in the end, and proceeded with the prequel movie under a slightly different title.

In any case, Tekken 2: Kazuya's Revenge was released on DVD and Blu-ray this week. And the movie will be making its way to theaters on August 21. Check out the laughably cheesy trailers below.

Wednesday Night Fights to play Ultra Street Fighter 4 on PC, Yatagarasu added to The Runback line-up - season 3 and 4 details

Alex Valle over at Level|Up has posted new information on the upcoming seasons of Wednesday Night Fights and The Runback. With the grand re-opening of Super Arcade taking place later this month, both events will return to the arcade for their third and fourth season.

Wednesday Night Fights is undergoing an interesting change for season 3 and 4 -- Ultra Street Fighter 4 will be played on PC instead of Xbox 360. The hardware used will be provided by Alienware, and Level|Up hopes to expand the fighting game community by "competing on a platform that’s accessible and predominately used in championship gaming events world wide."

It was also announced that Wednesday Night Fights has officially been added as a Capcom Pro Tour ranking event. The top 16 Ultra Street Fighter 4 players in season 3 will earn CPT points based on their overall performance.

Additionally, the overall Ultra Street Fighter 4 grand champion of Wednesday Night Fights season 3 will qualify for the Canada Cup Master Series taking place this November. The champ will win flight and lodging accommodations for the event and will compete against RZR|Xian, QANBA|Xiao Hai, and more for $20,000 CDN.

Kuma's fart can KO in 1 hit? Incredulous comebacks, timer scams, shenanigans and gimmicks in Tekken Tag Tournament 2

With so many characters, moves and possibilities, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is an incredibly rich game with plenty of depth -- and also shenanigans.

For instance, if you're not careful, you could be making all the right reads and be winning in most of the round, only to lose the entire round in a single hit to Kuma's fart attack, as seen in the first 23 seconds or so in this TTT2 highlights compilation video.

And that's just the beginning. Other cool and funny moments featured in this video include amazing combos, tricky mix-ups that involve conditioning your opponent through move spamming, and even some incredulous timer scam tactics -- like lying down prone on the ground once you have the health lead to minimize damage.

And you thought playing lame was a legitimate tactic only in Street Fighter!

Harada: 'We're trying to make Tekken 7 easy to approach, a lot of fans skipped over TTT2 because it was too difficult to learn 2 characters'

After Bandai Namco Games's panel at San Diego Comic-Con yesterday, Famitsu.com caught up with Tekken 7 producer and director Katsuhiro Harada in hopes of gleaming more details about the sequel.

While Harada did not provide any concrete details, he did share quite a bit of the team's thinking behind the development of the new Tekken.

"With the previous installment, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, there were a lot more players skipping over the title because it was difficult to learn to use two characters, than we had imagined," Harada said.

"So in contrast to that, since Tekken 7 is a sequel in the mainline series, the expectation here is for us to take the series back to its roots, back to the sort of Tekken that everyone is probably most familiar with. That's the vibe that we're getting from our fans."

To that end, Harada said that the Tekken's series complex wake-up mechanic is currently under review, to potentially get simplified in the new game, but only in a way that core players would also be happy with it.

He also said that more details on the game will be revealed right around the Tokyo Game Show timeframe in mid-September -- that's when Harada is slated to provide fans with the next update on the sequel.

Check out our translation of the interview below.
