Yesterday The Pokémon Company International and Bandai Namco Entertainment revealed that Pokkén Tournament–an odd mash-up of the titular monsters from Pokémon and beloved fighting franchise Tekken that had previously been limited to a Japanese arcade release–is coming to living rooms everywhere via Nintendo’s Wii U. While details are currently scarce, we do know that this Wii U version will launch worldwide in Spring of 2016.

Check out the trailer below to help get your head around the concept of a Pokémon fighting game, and check out the game’s official site for more information. You can also keep current on all things Pokémon throughout the weekend by following this year’s Pokémon World Championships in Boston.
