The title is being developed at Bandai Namco under the stoic gaze of Tekken boss Katsuhiro Harada.

Bandai Namco is already working with Nintendo on the forthcoming 3DS and Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros.

It's not the first we've heard of Pokkén Tournament - a brief clip of the game was shown earlier this year, titled Pokkén Fighters.

New gameplay glimpsed today featured 3D versions of Lucario and Machoke squaring off against a lush, green background.

So far there's no word on a launch for Wii U - or a version which might reach these shores.

We've contacted Nintendo UK for more information on a launch here in Europe.
