Sony Details Tekken Hybrid, Now Available on PlayStation 3
Sony European Product Manager Ross Alexander has shared details today on Tekken Hybrid below, which is now available to fans exclusively on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Created by NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc., the TEKKEN fighting game series is one of the world's most popular gaming franchises. And TEKKEN Hybrid brings you some of the very best that TEKKEN has to offer, all on the one Blu-Ray disk:
TEKKEN Tag Tournament HD
Originally released on PlayStation 2, TEKKEN Tag Tournament gave players a new kind of freedom with the TEKKEN fighting engine. With the introduction of a partner tag system, you could now set up new combos and play styles with teams rather than individual characters.
And now you can experience this PlayStation classic remastered in full HD for PS3, and complete with Trophy support. Pair up in the tag-team arena with the likes of King, Jun and Kazuya Mishima, and unlock the classic TEKKEN Bowl mode in this definite title for the fighting genre.
TEKKEN Tag Tournament 2 Prologue
This is the one everyone's waiting for - the chance to get hands-on with the future of TEKKEN. TEKKEN Tag Tournament 2 Prologue is a new stand-alone fighting game vignette in TEKKEN's classic 'Tag Tournament' style, based on TEKKEN Tag Tournament 2 which is currently in Japanese arcades.
It features four playable characters that appear in the movie TEKKEN Blood Vengeance (see below); Ling Xiaoyu, Alisa Bosconovitch, Devil Jin and Devil Kazuya. Plus TEKKEN Tag Tournament 2 Prologue is playable in 3D and features Trophy support.
TEKKEN Blood Vengeance
Set after the events of TEKKEN 5, this brand new feature length 3D CG movie is a must-see for TEKKEN fans. Digging deeper into the corrupt underbelly of the Mishima Zaibatsu, Ling Xiaoyu and Alisa Bosconovitch uncover dark secrets that could destroy the Mishima family forever, but will they survive long enough to reveal all?
Penned by Dai Sato (Cowboy Bebop and Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex) and directed by Yoichi Mouri, the movie was created by Digital Frontier, the animation studio that created the awesome TEKKEN 6 and TEKKEN Tag Tournament 2 CG intros.
Now a word from the man himself, TEKKEN creator and project director Katsuhiro Harada, ""We are very happy to be able to release all of this content on one Blu-Ray disk, and hope that it will be a truly compelling proposition for TEKKEN fans everywhere".
TEKKEN Tag Tournament was the first TEKKEN game I've played, I still think it's better than TEKKEN 5 and 6 . I'm really excited for TEKKEN Tag Tournament 2, but why not just call the prologue "TEKKEN Tag Tournament 2 BETA" and put it on PSN for users to get for free?
I agree with you, TEKKEN TAG Tournament 2 Prologue is only a prologue, there are only four available fighters ( Alisa, Ling Xiaoyu, Devil Jin and "Devil" Kazuya) and four stages to arrive at the end, so why don't they let try this game to all fans releasing it free on PSN? Maybe in future they could do so, it would be a good marketing strategy to promote the full version of game.
