Tekken Revolution – Free 2 Play – Fighting Game – PS3 Exclusive – June 11

by Rip

Gamespot has revealed that Namco will be released Tekken Revolution, a free 2 play fighting game, exlusively for the Playstation 3 on June 11th! I was tweeting about this as an idea months ago, so I’m really looking forward to it! The footage at 19m30s mark only shows a few characters (Kazuya, Lars, Paul and Bryan), but nothing is known about the game yet. Stages and graphics look like they are revamped from Tekken Tag Tournament 2. If you guys remember, it was announced a few months ago that patents were filed for Tekken Revolution and Tekken Arena. Now we know what Tekken Revolution is, will we find out what Tekken Arena is at E3 as well!?

Update: Michael Murray has confirmed on twitter that there will be gameplay differences!

Alex the only tekkens on PSN are 1,2, tekken 5 DR, and possibly tekken 6. Dawid I have 3 via PS1 disc so i don't care whether they put it on PSN or not but Tekken 4 had the best soundtrack, story, and presentation out of all the tekkens in my opinion. tekken 3 is still my favorite but there was something about tekken 4 that made me love tekken even more

I don't think it would happen : ( There's still no Tekken 3 on PSN and I believe the audience for T3 would be bigger than for T4.

LUYG is there any way we can suggest to namco/tekken to get tekken 4 on PSN? i don't know how to suggest this idea but i know you guys are somewhat close to namco in someway. I really wanna play that game again it was my favorite tekken. I just don't know how to get it on PSN so i can enjoy it once more. It would pretty cool if i could get my voice heard on this suggestion so i can play it.

Yes, they can do any or all of the above. We'll find out more soon though, the game comes out on Tuesday

Sure it's a great way to promote, but how can they profit from it ? Say outfits ? Stages? Characters ?

There are a lot of ways to implement the pay side of it. There are also a lot of really well done models out there. I understand the free 2 play concept is foreign to a lot of the FGC, but there is huge potential in it to make the scene bigger and stronger

That's what you do with a preview, draw your own conclusions. I don't see how f2p model can work for a fighting game, if Namco proves me wrong then I'll be happy to play.

^I kinda feel like your jumping the gun on judging the game when we haven't even seen it yet.

Then what is the point of releasing such title ? If you want a fighting game you want it to be complete, with access to all the roster. It's like receiving a car without wheels, something that is crucial. I don't see any reason why anyone should stick to this Tekken Revolution when there's TTT2. Sure, a lot of folks will just "check it out" because it's free, but how will Namco make the players support the title ? 5$ for 11 frames EWGF ?

Could be a good way to get new players into the game. I'm guessing it'll either be online only or pay to unlock each character. Maybe it'll just be a more robust customization system that you pay for outfit pieces. We'll see June 11th, I guess.

Only for Ps3. How can it be good for a fighting game, what should they sell to have profit ? Numerous outfits? Who cares? Looks like TTT2 solo mode with different color schema for arenas.
