Namco Bandai has revealed plans to release Tekken 6 for PSP alongside the Xbox 360 and PS3 editions. Spanning a fourteen year legacy, the Tekken franchise has sold more than 33 million units to date. A new King of Iron Fist Tournament is about to begin, complete with intense gameplay modes as well as new features and environments.
Optimized for the PSP system, the game will not only contain all the explosive action of its home console brethren but also feature additional stages, content, items, and an ad-hoc multiplayer mode. Fighting amongst friends is encouraged as players can battle wirelessly against each other using original or fan favourite characters.
Rounding out its list of features is the return of the “Ghost” Infrastructure mode, which allows players to upload their “ghost” character data and download others’ from the Internet onto their PSP. When players have reached the height of their Tekken fighting skills, they will be able to see how they stack up against others through the game’s network support.
All versions of the game will be released later this year.
