Pokkén Tournament and Teen Tournament DX have opened for a second season in North America.
The tournaments will feature up to 12 teams, with the final set to take place on Saturday, September 16.
In a video posted on the Pokkén Twitch channel, Pokkens head coach Takashi Kishimoto announced the two tournaments would be streamed on Twitch starting on September 14.
Kishimoto said the teams had received positive feedback from the fans, who have expressed their desire to see more female players in the game.
“As long as there are female players, there is always a possibility for more players to participate in the games,” Kishimura said.
“We believe that female players have an equal opportunity to compete in the competitive scene.”
He said that, while the tournaments would feature only male players, “we will strive to have the best women players in both tournaments.”
The first Pokken Tournament DX will take place at The Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on September 8, with tournaments running at other hotels and resorts across the country, as well as the Pokémon Centre in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Lakers Basketball Arena, the New Orleans Saints Superdome and the Miami Dolphins Stadium.
