[IMGW]http://media.1up.com/media?id=3187458[/IMGW] Namco Bandai announced that Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection is coming to the PlayStation store for the PlayStation 3 later this month. Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection was released in Japan late last year and rumors pointed to the game's delay being related to additional content and possibly an online versus mode. Yet, now that doesn't appear to be the case.
We asked Namco Bandai if online play was an undocumented feature in the North American release of Tekken 5, representatives from the company told 1UP the following: "Online play will not be available in this download."
Call it nitpicky, but the phrase "this download" certainly implies future downloads. Is it possible that this version of Tekken 5 is a "base pack" and is laying the foundation for additional digital content to augment the Dark Resurrection experience? Will one of those future content packs be online play? We're guessing "Yes." But, if Namco Bandai is planning to support Tekken 5 via downloadable content, does that mean Tekken 6 is further off than we originally thought it was?
