Pokken Tournament’s First Run Will Come With Shadow Mewtwo Amiibo Card

by Dean James


Pokken Tournament has been announced for awhile now, though only available in Japanese arcades at this point. However, the game was also announced for Wii U last year for a Spring 2016 release and now we know something special that will be coming with it.

Details started to surface more recently of someone known as Shadow Mewtwo in Pokken Tournament, a special boss that was even confirmed by an official video from The Pokemon Company last week.

The good news is that he is also transitioning to the Wii U version and will not just a boss, but a playable fighter.

The first run of Pokken Tournament will come with a special amiibo card according to the latest Nintendo Direct, similar to how the Animal Crossing amiibo cards have been. This card will allow you to use this Shadow Mewtwo as a playable character, though there is no indication if he is unlockable otherwise in the game.

Pokken Tournament is certainly a very unique style game and will be a lot of fun to finally have a chance to play it next Spring, as the arcade version is so far limited to Japan or a very limited run at Dave & Busters arcades.

Pokken Tournament will launch for Wii U in Spring 2016, with this Shadow Mewtwoamiibo card being a first run exclusive.
