Pikachu is a cuddly, deadly luchador in 'Pokkén Tournament'

If you aren't already excited for the release of Bandai Namco's Pokkén Tournament next spring on Wii U, you undoubtedly will be after watching this trailer in which adorable Pikachu is a mask- and singlet-wearing luchador who's here to take names and kick ass. Only he she doesn't actually give a damn about names.

Released to Japanese arcades in July, Pokkén Tournament is pretty much what you see below: a fighting game in which two players battle it out with Pokémon. Of course the first fight will be over who gets to play Masked Pikachu.
