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.
