Displayed in astonishing HD detail, a new era begins this fall in the sixth King of the Iron Fist Tournament complete with intense gameplay modes as well as new features and environments.

A must-have for Tekken aficionados, TEKKEN 6 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, sees the return of many familiar faces as well as new characters to create the largest line-up the series has ever seen.  With a growing roster of fighters, each equipped with their own deadly techniques, moves and attack combinations, TEKKEN 6 will be the best “King of Iron Fist Tournament” yet.  Adding to the already rich gaming experience, a deeper character customization feature will only further enhance the incredible fighting intensity as players go mano-y-mano.  Players can also take the battle online for classic match-ups and to compete for world domination.

TEKKEN 6 will also be available for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system this fall. Optimized for the PSP system, TEKKEN 6 will not only contain all the explosive action of its home console brethren but also feature additional stages, content, items, and an ad-hoc multiplayer mode.

    Farhan and tekken lover you do realise that all that has to work for this is the VS mode. Namco still has time to do force/fmvs/online coding in the next few months.
