Pokkén Tournament

A new trademark has been discovered for Pokkén Tournament. This trademark was registered in Europe on August 18th 2015, just two days ago and follows the original trademark added last year in Europe but now also includes the logo. This shows further likelihood of the arcade game getting a release outside of Japan following interest by chains in North America and the original North American trademarks discovered last year. We'll bring more as it comes.
