on January 15, 2016 7:49 AM

The upcoming spinoff Pokken Tournament already includes plenty of the Pokemon series’ heavy hitters, with the Ghost/Fire-type Chandelure bringing an unusual (but interesting) new dynamic to the Tekken/Pokemon mashup title.

A new post on the official Pokken Tournament website revealed that Chandelure will be the next fighter added to the Wii U title, joining several other newly-revealed characters such as Garchomp, Mewtwo, and Braixen.

A teaser image for Chandelure was provided, though a more detailed trailer with gameplay footage of the Ghost/Fire-type Pokemon will be coming later this month on January 31st.

Pokken Tournament is currently available on Arcade in Japan, with an upcoming Wii U release in Japan on March 18th, 2016. The title will also release on Wii U for the US and Europe in Spring 2016.
