Pokkén Tournament - Shadow Mewtwo

The Pokémon Company has released a new trailer for their arcade fighter, Pokkén Tournament. It looked like a fun, but typical, trailer for the fighter. Until the end that is…

Once the standard combatants (including the amazingly awesome Pikachu Libre) had their moment to shine in the trailer, it seemingly ends. Then, after the release date screen pops up which typically signifies the end of most trailers, Shadow Mewtwo shows up.

Little is known about the darker Mewtwo variant in Pokkén Tournament, but he does look considerably more badass. The character is darker and more menacing visually, and has some sort of blade shaped object jutting from its left shoulder. Here is the new trailer in its entirety, be sure to stick around for the end:

Pokkén Tournament is out now in arcades. The title is slated for a worldwide release on Wii U in Spring of 2016.
