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.

Harada is thinking of including an Arab fighter in Tekken 7, seeks feedback on character design blueprints

Tekken 7 producer and director Katsuhiro Harada has shared with fans on Facebook today one of the character design blueprints that the development is currently considering using for a new character -- an Arab fighter -- in the game.

Do note that at this point, the Tekken 7 development has not yet decided if the Arab fighter shown here will indeed be included in the game's roster. That will depend on the community's feedback.

Check out the character's design blueprint below, along with a note written by Harada himself.
