Tekken 6 Set to Knockout Your Wallet


NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. announced today two TEKKEN® 6 pre-order campaigns that are sure to entice every video game enthusiast.

Available at retailers nationwide, a TEKKEN 6 Wireless Fight Stick Bundle will provide a complete home arcade experience.  As a GameStop pre-order exclusive, customers will receive a 2009-2010 TEKKEN 6 collectable calendar as well as downloadable content designed by revered webcomic, Penny Arcade.  Both pre-order offerings will only be available while supplies last. TEKKEN 6 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system will be released throughout North America on October 27, 2009 with the Europe, Japan and Asia release to follow shortly thereafter.

The premium TEKKEN 6 fight stick bundle for Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 will provide even more pulse-pounding experiences with every bone jarring punch.  Each set, retailing for $149.99, will include a copy of the game, a HORI wireless fight stick and a detailed art book.

Inspired by the alter-ego of the Penny Arcade character Jonathan ‘Gabe’ Gabriel, the downloadable Penny Arcade “Samurai Pack” will allow the legendary warrior Yoshimitsu to don the iconic outfit of the “Cardboard Tube Samurai.”  The pack also contains limited edition Samurai Battle Banners which can be used to customize each of the 40 unique fighters in the game.

A must-have for fighting aficionados, TEKKEN 6 sees the return of many familiar faces and new characters to create the largest line-up in franchise history.  Adding to the already robust gaming experience, dynamic and destructible environments will enable players to punch their enemies through concrete walls or kick them through floors to open a whole new battleground. Players can also take the battle online for classic match-ups and to compete for world domination.  Furthermore, an impressive real-time motion blur effect has been implemented to provide the richest visuals the series has ever seen.

Featuring a new Scenario Campaign mode, players are introduced to a unique hybrid control system that combines conventional fighting game controls with free movement.  This system allows them to progress through the story and mow down hordes of enemies while still enjoying fighting game action either alone or cooperatively online. For the first time in the series, players will have an arsenal of staffs, machine guns, flame throwers, and even giant robots at their disposal.

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