Nintendo UK Launch Pokkén Tournament Countdown Clash


Nearing a fortnight until launch, Nintendo UK is running their own Pokkén Tournament Countdown Clash contest in anticipation.

That sees two of the Wii U exclusive’s fighters pitted head-to-head each week, with fans voting on who they believe will win the bout. The first and second battles pit Pikachu Libre against Chandelure and Lucario taking on Gengar respectively, with the rest of the tournament grid to be revealed as the Countdown Clash continues.

It will be down to fans to decide who wins, encouraged to cast their votes on YouTube and Twitter with the winners announced every Thursday. It isn’t only an effort to introduce you to the playable character roster either, with anyone that places their vote seeing them enter a random draw to win one of four copies of Pokkén Tournament and a Pokkén Tournament Pro Controller.

Pokkén Tournament will launch exclusively for Wii U worldwide on March 18th.
