February 26, 2007 - While Tekken 6 made a surprise appearance at the AOU arcade expo in Japan a couple of weeks back, missing from the trailer footage and brief developer interview aired at the show was specific information on when we'd be able to get our hands on the title. In fact, aside from a promise of a 2007 arcade release, Bandai Namco failed to make a clear timeframe public.
But the folks at Japan's number one arcade magazine were privy to some extra details, it seems. A major arcade website has obtained the April issue of the monthly Arcadia magazine and posted all the key details. Included is one little bit that's sure to get Tekken fans excited. Tekken 6 development staff revealed to the magazine in an interview that they hope to put their latest creation on location test before the weather gets hot.
Depending on exactly how hot they mean by hot, this could imply a location test as early as May. We'll let you know if we hear anything more specific.
