Pokkén Tournament, The Pokemon Fighting Game, Coming To Japanese Arcades

Posted by Bob Muir on Aug 27, 2014 in Videogames

Pokken Tournament

The last weird Pokémon crossover we saw was Pokémon Conquest, which mixed the ever-popular critter collector with Nobunaga’s Ambition, a strategy RPG set in feudal Japan. It’s about time for another unexpected mash-up, and this time it’s Pokkén Tournament, a fighting game made by Namco Bandai and overseen by Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada and Soulcalibur producer Masaaki Hoshino. The debut trailer showed Machamp and Lucario (both fighting-type pokémon) fighting each other, with Lucario evolving into Mega Lucario at the end. The announcement confirms hints and leaks from last year’s Tokyo Game Show. Read more…

Oops… Tekken 7 Leaked… Then Announced

Posted by Ben Huber on Jul 14, 2014 in Videogames


EVO is wrapping up but it looks like Tekken 7 leaked a bit early. Again. Tekken 7 hasn’t been much of a secret (it also showed up on a projector that was being tested at EVO), but this IGN video that was accidentally posted early by AOL confirmed the game  earlier (but sadly no gameplay footage). It also will reportedly be powered by Unreal Engine 4 and will release on current gen consoles… so it seems it may not be cross-gen. I’m not much of a Tekken fan, but Tekken-lovers should be very excited about this news, as it should allow for more ease of porting to other systems. Thankfully, a short teaser confirmation trailer has been released. I’ve embedded it below. Read more…



Tekken Tag Tournament 2 On Wii U Looks Pretty Silly

Posted by Bob Muir on Nov 8, 2012 in Videogames

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition

Like most console launches, the Wii U is getting a lot of ports to fill out its launch window. A lot of these are pretty much what you’d expect, but Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition is getting some nice exclusive content to differentiate this version. Besides being able to draw on your characters with the GamePad to customize them, there are further customization options to make the Tekken characters look like Nintendo characters. That’s almost weird enough, but the extra content doesn’t end there.

Tekken Tag 2 Looks and Plays Beautifully

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jul 17, 2012 in Videogames

Last week, during an event at San Diego Comic-Con International, I had the opportunity to sit down with a recent console build of Namco Bandai’s upcoming fighter, Tekken Tag Tournament 2. I have to admit I wasn’t expecting to be stunned by the visuals, and I hadn’t expected any significant improvements in terms of actual gameplay. Much to my surprise, however, the game offers quite a few enhancements over its predecessor, Tekken 6.

Glorious Tekken Tag 2 Fight Lab Screens

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Screen Lee Chaolan 1

I’ve always had a soft spot for Tekken. I know it’s not everyone’s fighting game of choice, but the series has remained successful throughout the years due in large part to its dedicated fan-base, of which I consider myself a member. While I love the gameplay, and even some of the zany story elements, I’ll be the first to admit that that the plot can be incredibly confusing. Thankfully the upcoming Tekken Tag Tournament 2 won’t be adding to that. Instead, the game is considered non-cannon, allowing gamers to simply have fun with the Tekken universe. One of the modes to be included in the upcoming console release is the “Fight Lab Mode” — what’s that, you ask? Find out after the jump.

Street Fighter X Tekken Bonus PS3/Vita Characters Are… Interesting

Posted by Ben Huber on Jan 28, 2012 in Videogames


Capcom and Namco recently announced that the PS3 and Vita versions of Street Fighter X Tekken would feature several exclusive characters. We already knew about Cole from Infamous, but let’s just say the rest of the bonus characters are very, uh, unique. Mega Man, Pac-Man, and Kuro and Toro (the Japanese Sony mascots). And it’s not the usual Mega Man, it’s the cheesy American boxart Mega Man – which is either hilariously awesome or incredibly disappointing, depending on your point of view. Read more…

New Street Fighter x Tekken Screens Aim to Confuse

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Nov 23, 2011 in Videogames

Street Fighter x Tekken Costumes 1

I don’t know how many of you play Street Fighter or Tekken, but I’m sure you’re probably aware of how over-the-top some of these characters look already. Now, thanks to the ability to customize the character with costumes and props, they’ve taken it even further. A batch of recently released screenshots gives us a glimpse of just how zany things can get. Why anyone would ever want to dress a bear like a female luchador is beyond me, but guess what? You can. I just hope, given Capcom’s penchant for microtransactions, we’re not stuck footing any additional fees for the “privilege” of playing dress up. That’d be annoying.

Japanese Xbox 360 Commercial for Tekken 6

Posted by Michael Pinto on Sep 14, 2009 in Videogames

Tekken 6 will appear on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in Japan, however Microsoft would rather you buy it on the Xbox 360 of course! This latest version of Tekken includes a “rage” system which kicks in when the energy on characters is low (I wish I had that in the real world). Read more…
