A limited TEKKEN 6 premium fight stick bundle is also available to provide players with even more pulse-pounding experiences with every bone- jarring punch.
TEKKEN 6 sees the return of many familiar faces and new characters to create the largest line-up in franchise history. Recreate the arcade experience at home by battling friends or AI-controlled opponents while amassing a wealth of items for customizing and strengthening characters in different modes including Versus, Time Attack, and Survival. Featuring dynamic and destructible environments, players will be able to test their virtual might by punching their enemies through concrete walls or kicking them through floors to open a whole new battleground. New to the series, the Scenario Campaign mode will allow players to progress through the story and mow down hordes of enemies while still enjoying fighting game action.
With full support via the PlayStationNetwork and Xbox Live online entertainment network, TEKKEN 6 includes a multitude of online features. Players can vie for global domination or just improve their fighting skills by battling opponents worldwide in online versus mode. Create and upload customized ghost characters, which replicate a player's fight style, so any competitor from around the world can download them for one-on-one battles. Also an online co-op update for the game's Scenario Campaign will be available this winter as a free post-launch downloadable content. In this mode, two players can jump into intense campaigns against AI controlled enemies and experience the dramatic large-scale action with friends around the world.
