    I know that both the Wii U and later deluxe Switch versions of Pokkén Tournament had sold over 1 million copies worldwide, making it a million-selling video game. However, I'm not sure about whether or not you think that either version of this game is a commercial success worldwide, and whether not you think it will have a sequel? If not, please let me know why not?

    Until visiting Japan I thought Pokken Tournament was unsucessful at all, in my country it's very rare to find "Tekken players which also like Pokemon" so it was a strange niche. Even national Facebook groups were desert here, so I had no hope this game would have a sequel.

    After visiting Japan my impressions changed, almost every Pokecenter I did visit was full of kids playing together and enjoying at fullest (even some grow ups having fun too). Since Japan cares a lot about their own market, I have my fingers crossed on a sequel of this great game. I've bought both Wii U and Switch versions and all DLCs, even the controller (which's great to play retro fighting games too), so my part's done! :D

    For the story, maybe some "evil organization" would do a nice new story mode with many battles and cool characters. Something like the previous one, "cursed powerful one", but in the hands of really bad guys.

    Why do you think Pokkén Tournament is not actually similar to the Mortal Kombat video games?

    Mortal kombat is on a purely 2d fighting plain tekken which is what pokken is based off of utilizes a 3d fighting area as well as a 2d

    I think Mortal Kombat plays in another niche, it keeps "horizontal" fighting and has a brutal appeal. Tekken goes from sideways to "horizontal" on its game, Pokken made this easier than mastering backdashes and sidestep blocks to get closer, like more friendly Tekken in my opinion.

    Greninja has been considered a fan favorite Pokémon. But why do you think Bandai Namco Studios video game developers didn't include Greninja as a playable character in Pokkén Tournament?

    It's in smash bros so they probably want to be original
