Katsuhiro Harada Shares Who Decides to Continue Pokken Tournament

The key producer of the Tekken series, Katsuhiro Harada, spoke about who the decision to renew the previously popular series with Pokémon battles - Pokken Tournament - depends on.

Unlike other Pokémon games that required you to remember which Pokémon was weak against a certain type of elemental, Pokken Tournament was all about pure one-on-one battles without memorizing extraneous information. 

So, The decision to make a sequel to Pokken is 100% up to Nintendo and the folks over at the Pokémon Company. “We have a good relationship with Nintendo and Pokémon Co., Ltd.,” writes Harada. “POKKÉN has had a great response, so I would like to make it again. But it’s not what we decide; it’s what they decide.”

It's an interesting fact that it lost its popularity after the restart on Nintendo Switch.
