‘Pokken Tournament’ Testing in the U.S. at Dave & Buster’s

Like its current test run in Japan at various locations, the Senior Vice President of Entertainment and Game Strategy at Dave & Buster’s has revealed on Reddit that Pokken Tournament will be tested at the restaurant’s locations in the United States. No other information was revealed by him, but it’s likely more than a few locations will host the arcade game for Americans to try. When that will be is unknown.

Q: You guys are on good terms with Nintendo/Namco, right? Pokken Fighters would be likely to at least get a location test if they offered it, right?

Kevin Bachus: Yes. We will be testing Pokken. Candidly both NAMCO and I are more optimistic about that title and our typical guests than Tekken.

    Just a heads up for people that want to try this out, if you are under the age of 21 you may need to be accompanied by an older adult. This all depends on location of course but worth checking out before making the trip.

    I have a Dave and Busters location around 20 miles from my house. It is one of my favorite places to eat, but I just don't go often because of the distance. The next time I go, I plan on trying the game out.

    Was hoping for Round 1, but this works.

    Just... hope it succeeds enough to make it into Round 1.
