The Pokemon Company is gearing up to release a new title, called “Pokken Tournament," which is different from any other “Pokemon” game. The upcoming title sports a wide roster featuring series favourites, and a new video posted online shows a new Pokemon not yet present in other games.

The video, which was first spotted by NeoGAF, sees a new version of series favourite Mewtwo. The new Mewtwo is simply named Dark Mewtwo and is an iteration of the Pokemon that hasn’t been seen in any other game, manga or show. The video seen below showcases Dark Mewtwo in a battle against "Pokken Tournament" character Gengar in what looks to be an arena from the game.

The Pokemon Company has yet to confirm whether or not Dark Mewtwo is a playable title in the upcoming Wii U fighting game. Reports suggest that he could serve as an end-game boss for players. It’s also possible that Dark Mewtwo could be made available in the rumoured “Pokemon Z” for the 3DS. As of now, Mewtwo has X and Y Mega Evolutions for “Pokemon X” and “Pokemon Y.”

There are already many characters set to join the roster of “Pokken Tournament” for the Wii U. Some of these include Pikachu, Charizard, Machamp, Blaziken, Suicine, Gardevoir and Lucario. Gamerant reports that players will also be able to summon and assist Pokemons during battles like Lapras, Emolga, Snivy and Fenniken.

“Pokken Tournament ” is a fighting game based on “Tekken.” Instead of the usual human fighters, “Pokken Tournament” is set to use Pokemon in battles. Unlike the other fighting game by Nintendo, “Super Smash Bros.,” the upcoming “Pokken Tournament” will feature a direct one-versus-one playstyle instead of a rumble between several characters.

As of now, “Pokken Tournament” is only available in Japanese arcades. However, rumours suggest that the game will be launching to the Nintendo Wii U sometime soon.
