Pokkén Tournament, a fighting game featuring Pokemon, will launch on Wii U on March 18, 2016.

The game, which is a port of the same title that is currently available in Japanese arcades, will see Pokemon characters duke it out in Tekken-style fighting action.

Nintendo and The Pokemon Company revealed that those who pre-order the game will receive a Shadow MewTwo Amiibo card. When the card is tapped to the Wii U gamepad, players will be able to use Shadow MewTwo as a character in the game.

The game currently features 16 characters, with more playable characters planned to be added over time.

Pokkén Tournament is just one part of the celebration of Pokemon’s 20th anniversary during 2016, which also includes a very special 3DS release that is coming in February.
