One of the many things that Nintendo fans have been asking to see for years is a Pokémon game on a major Nintendo home console. The Pokémon Company has been adamant that the series is best played on Nintendo’s handheld systems, but that hasn’t stopped them from releasing games like Pokémon Snap and Pokémon Colosseum, which is a GameCube title we’d like to see on Wii U.
Now, it looks like something similar could be happening, as The Pokémon Company has registered two new trademarks in Europe, named Pokkén Fighters and Pokkén Tournament. Trademarks for these titles were filed in the US last year, when a rumored image surfaced of Lucario fighting another Pokémon.
At the time, The Pokémon Company said the image was merely conceptual, but perhaps it is tied to the trademarks. There’s no clarification about the trademarks, but with E3 around the corner now seems like the best time ever to announce a new Pokémon game, either for Wii U or Nintendo 3DS.
