Everyone's favorite chubby purple ghost will be a playable character in Pokken Tournament.

Pokken Tournament - Nintendo's new Tekken-style Pokemon fighting game - has just had a new fighter revealed: Gengar, everyone's favorite chubby purple ghost. You can see his reveal in the trailer to the right, which shows him throwing down with the likes of Lucario and Pikachu, using his shadowy tricks to gain an advantage.

Nintendo and Bandai Namco announced the new fighter at the NicoNico Chokaigi 2015 event, where more footage and information about the game was also revealed. We now know that the game will launch in Japanese arcades this summer, though we have no further info on if it will make its way to consoles, or even American arcades.

Previously, Nintendo revealed Pikachu, Gardevoir and Suicene as playable fighters for the game, as well as showing off the unique controller the Pokken Tournament arcade machines will use.

It looks like Nintendo is giving us another Super Smash Bros.-style slow-reveal of all the Pokken Touranament fighters, rather than simply reveal them all in one big announcement.
