by Rip

The Alisa Bosconovitch statue by Kotobukiya has been sculpted! Not quite painted yet, but its looking pretty good. If you didn’t believe she was a robot before, this wedgie they gave her goes the distance to prove it. Check out the image Harada posted on his twitter:

Tekken 3DS Prime Edition – Release Date

by Rip

Tekken 3DS Prime Edition has a release date. February 16, 2012Andriasang reports that this date is listed in the latest Famitsu. Not much has been revealed about the game, but we do know that it will come with the Tekken:Blood Vengeance movie on the cart and that the movie can playback in 3D. The release date is interesting as it puts right firmly between Soul Calibur 5′s January 31 release date and Street Fighter x Tekken’s March 6 release date. It doesn’t look like it will be a tag game, however there are 40 characters, Young Heihachi, new stages, and redesigned old stages so it will be interesting to see what kind of move list they decide to go with. Check out more images from the game here.

DeepTheater Is Back With More Tekken Tag 2 Combo Madness

by Rip

DeepTheater is back showing off some interesting sandwich combo scenarios. I’m not really sure what he means by “the direction to fly over depends on which character you can operate” but things look pretty crazy anyway. Raven really needs to be patched..

Kotobukiya Unveils Asuka Kazama Tekken Concept and Final Yoshimitsu Statue Pictures

by Rip

Update 2011/10/16: Added Harada’s twitpic for size comparison. Also shows Alisa concept art.
Earlier this year Namco showed off the Yoshimitsu statue based off the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 model. Yesterday Kotobukiya revealed the final statue with a base that is ridiculously awesome. Some are claiming it will sell for $300-$500… Right now, the Christie model is up for pre-order at $60. Hopefully the Yoshimitsu ends up being around the same price, however with the amount of detail in it, I think the estimates may be right. Separately, yesterday at New York Comic-Con they also showed off the concept for their Asuka Kazama statue. Maybe one day they’ll make Law.. Check out the rest of the images after the jump.

Tekken Throw Break Trainer Moved To LevelUpYourGame.com

by Rip

Hey everyone. Unbelievably, its been almost 4.5 years since I first created the Tekken Throw Break Trainer.  The reason was simple: I didn’t want to boot up a console and setup practice mode to practice throw breaking every time. So I made a flash program accessible from any computer at any time. Over the years there were minor revisions so people on laptops could set keys (since they may not have a numpad) and I added more characters to it so that you can practice against small arms/medium arms/large arms (check the original TZ thread for more info). The timing is slightly stricter than the game so if you can do it here, you can do it in the game. Since its release, the Throw Break Trainer has been played nearly half a million times by Tekken fans around the world.

Now that all of my time is dedicated here to Level Up Your Game, it only makes sense to bring the original Throw Break Trainer to the site. For those of you wondering, I do plan on updating it once Tekken Hybrid hits. You can find it in the menu bar above. Check it out and tell your friends.
