    why is the pokemon sub-forum still in "ds"

    This ****'s gonna sell like bacon at a meatlover's convention. Fans have been awaitin' a real-time Pokemon game, RPG or fighting, for a very long time. If it's competitively viable, my heart will be filled with Ho-Oh. If it's not, I won't even be mad 'cause twice as much Lucario in fighting games than there was previous.

    now all i want is a gallade confirmation

    Yoshimitsu.

    ... That'd be hilarious, Yoshimitsu fightin' Pokemon.

    Wouldn't be surprised if it was that way for specials or supers.

    Hopefully this'll mean that's all the Pokemon fighters in Smash. Better yet, remove them all and put them in this. Then make it a crossover with the Tekken and Street Fighter cast. Make it 3 versions. Then watch it be terrible.

    this game is for arcades only....so there will be no sales. do they count arcade machines as sales?

    i guess they want it to develop a cult following before releasing it.

    Saving my quarters for this.
    Just you wait, my name's gonna be on the high score list.

    No, but seriously. Wii U version coming in a year or two. I see it. Special edtion with Pikachu Arcade Stick.
    Honestly I don't like the concept, but who knows?

    Releasing an arcade game these days is a stupid move.

    Arcades are dead, what was once filled with games is now driving/shooting/grabbers/slots machines, to make things wosre mobie phone games are now becoming "Arcade machines"

    YES for a quid a go you two can play a game you can get for free off your phone

    While we're proposing these fantastic ideas, why not fill the rest of the Xeno series with FiM ponies as NPCs? Just replace the nopons with them, they were terrible anyway. And make Sora the main character, that would be nice too.

    One happened, the other cannot happen. It's not my fault the 2 SF/Tekken crossovers are a thing and are fated to be terrible. Locked on-disc DLC certainly didn't help. I am merely being realistic based on the series' recent history. As opposed to 'blade, which was received with praise by everyone.

    dat typo
    So hey, not just Fighting-types. No doubt thus Magikarp will enter the fillet.

    Er... fray.

    Speakin' of that, how do developers profit from arcade machines, anyways? Do they get a specific royalty, or is it more complex?

    ^

    Ya don't like the concept of a Pokemon fighting game? Are you mad?

    they collect the quarters every night and get a rental fee to loan out the cabinets.

    largely depends if they include type effectiveness or not, and how potent it ends up being

    Namco fighting game. If Troll Freak doesn't tell 'em to make it a superderpcasual game, it could be competitively viable. And not as in "Smash Bros. accidentally being competitively viable", as in they developed with competitive balance in mind.

    ... Though they could fail miserably even if they did try t' make it competitively viable. Ya can't know if a game is competitive 'til a few months after release.

    Unless it's as bad as PSAll-Stars.
