Bandai Namco has released a brand new trailer for their Pokémon and Tekken infused brawler, Pokken Tournament, which shows off Pikachu bringing the smack down. Though this isn’t just any old Pikachu, this is Pikachu Libre!

This isn’t the first time we’ve been Pikachu Libre, in fact masked Pikachu was unveiled in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby as Cosplay Pikachu, a new type of Pikachu which could be found in the game and offered special abilities based on how it dressed.

Much like the Cosplay Pikachu, Pikachu Libre also has special abilities and a different move-set from the regular Pikachu which was first unveiled in the game’s Wii U announcement earlier this year.

Bandai Namco and The Pokémon Company announced in August that Pokken Tournament is set to come to the Wii U worldwide in Spring 2016.
