So, Namco is working on TWO NIntendo fighting games

Huh. Pokken, which looks to be connected in some way with Tekken (Similar logo, basic mechanics, the pun) and Smash.

That's an interesting development. I wonder why specifically fighting games with NIntendo characters?

When is the last time you heard anything about "pokken" from Namco or Nintendo? Do you have any source that states namco is even working on a second Nintendo game at the moment? Just curious cause so far all I've seen is wild speculation and folks building hype for a game that may not even exist.

You're, like, five whole minutes behind.

apparently katsuhiro harada is working with it directly... he'd have his plate full having just announced tekken 7 too.

Also I'm pretty sure this means Tekken x SF is finally outright dead.

By Grabthar's Hammer, what a savings.

They keep insisting it's still in dev.

But with how SF X Tekken was recieved, I think it may be given a low priority until people forget that it happened.

The negativity surrounding SFxT Probably killed the game from Namco's side.

Not changing this sig until F-Zero comes out. Been waiting since E3 2007.

The last thing we heard about Starcraft: Ghost, a bit before Wings was released, was that it's still coming along, and we've heard "still in dev" about Beyond Good and Evil 2 and Last Guardian within this last year.

Just sayin'.
