Pokkén Tournament soundtrack features Tekken, Pokémon talents

Tomorrow, the crossover fighting title Pokkén Tournament will be released worldwide on the Wii U. Originally released on arcade, the title blends the gameplay of the Tekken series with the characters of the Pokémon series.


For the title, developer Bandai Namco Entertainment appointed relative newcomers Katsuhiko Iwama and Hiroki Hashimoto as sound director and lead composer respectively, both of them having previously contributed to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.

They were joined by a number of co-composers, including Tekken artists such as Hiroyuki Kawada, Rio Hamamoto and Taku Inoue. They were also joined by Shota Kageyama, composer of most of the recent mainline Pokémon titles, who recently left developer Game Freak to form his independent studio Spica Musica. The full game credits are below:

Sound Director: Katsuhiko Iwama
