Four new characters for the Pokemon themed arcade fighter have been announced in recent days.
The new characters come from all different generations of Pokemon: Garchomp, from the fourth generation, Braixen, from the sixth generation, Mewtwo, the famed clone is joining the group from the first generation, and revealed early this morning, Chandelure, the fifth generation fire/ghost type that is shaped like a chandelier.
The inclusion of Chandelure is another example of what appears to be a traditional fighting game including characters that don’t fit molds set forth by genre pillars such as Tekken.
The new group joins a cast already featuring Charizard, Pikachu, Weavile, Lucario, and others. The game is scheduled for a Mar. 18 release, and it is likely that even more characters will appear before the game’s final console release.
