The Pokémon fighting game is getting an update

Scizor, the steel/bug type Pokémon (known as Hassam in Japan), is coming to the arcade version of Pokkén Tournament, Bandai Namco revealed this week. A new trailer released today shows Scizor in action.

Scizor will be added to the arcade version of Pokkén Tournament on Oct. 20. After Darkrai, it’s the second Pokémon to be added exclusively to the arcade version. It’s not clear yet if Scizor is coming to the Wii U version of Pokkén Tournament, which shipped in March.

With the addition of Scizor, the Pokkén Tournament roster will consist of 18 playable fighters and 30 support Pokémon.
