Tekken Hybrid Namco Arcade TE Stick and Extreme Bundle Announced!

by Rip

Wow, just when you thought you couldn’t get any more hype for Tekken Hybrid comes this announcement for the Extreme Bundle! Namco and Madcatz have teamed up to produce 1000 of these limited edition arcade sticks and package it with the Tekken Hybrid Limited Edition set as well. Jet black everything exterior looks sick! Orders available only through ClubNamco for $249! Limit 2 per person! Better order soon because I have a feeling these babies are going to sell out. Also, if you want a preview of these sticks, they’ll be at the Madcatz booth at Devastation this weekend!

1up Interview’s Harada Regarding the Six+ Upcoming Tekken titles

by Rip

This is the first article with Harada in awhile that actually has some good new information. For one, Harada talks about how the Tekken Project development team is currently split up. A good chunk of them are doing motion capture on Tekken x Street Fighter, so its safe to say that game is past the 1% mark now. He also talks a bit about the ORIGINAL version of Tekken 4 which was scrapped and their almost collaboration/crossover with a different 3rd party game developer. Very good read, check it out

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 PROLOGUE Gameplay and Info from TGS

by Rip

Didn’t expect to get gameplay videos of TTT2 Prologue from Namco on the day of Tekken Tag Tournament 2′s arcade release, but surprise surprise! Good strats Namco! Looks like it will be only 4 characters which really sucks. Would’ve really liked to see 8 or 10 characters out of the 40 in the game. Graphics look good though. Dubstep fountain stage is in and the water / dirt effects look great still.

Prologue will include two-player versus but no single-player ladder. Also TTT1 HD, Tekken:Blood Vengeance, and TTT2 Prologue will all be 3D-compatible. As previously announced, TTT2 Prologue will also have a 3D model viewer. Release is scheduled for this holiday, exclusively for Playstation 3.
