Tekken Hybrid Hits Today Exclusively for PS3

+ Posted by "Filthie" Rich Bantegui on Nov 22, 2011 // NAMCO BANDAI Games Community Manager

Hey guys! I wanted to give everyone a quick look at everything you’ll be getting with today’s release of Tekken Hybrid exclusively for PS3. Tekken Hybrid comes with three Tekken experiences: Tekken Tag Tournament HD, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue, and Tekken Blood Vengeance 3D all on one Blu-ray disc! And I hope you brought your 3D glasses, because Tekken Blood Vengeance and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue are both compatible with 3D televisions. Plus, if you buy the Limited Edition you get a special two-disc soundtrack of Tekken Tag and Tekken Tag 2 music, as well as a hardcover art book filled with information and art from all three parts of the Tekken Hybrid package. Now on to the good stuff, the chewy center or this Tekken nougat, here is what you’ll be getting with your copy of Tekken Hybrid.

Tekken Hybrid for PS3

Tekken Tag Tournament HD

This was a game-changer when it was released in 1999 for arcades, and the following year as a PlayStation 2 launch title. Let’s take all the characters In the Tekken franchise for two-on-two tag battles, throw in Tekken Bowl, which ended up being a fan-favorite mini-game, and have players go buck wild in extreme two-on-two matches. Tekken Tag Tournament gave players a new kind of freedom with the Tekken fighting engine. With the introduction of a partner tag system, players gained the ability to set up new combos and play styles, with teams rather than individual characters, enabling you to launch your opponent in the air and tag in your partner to continue the pain. Tekken Tag Tournament HD brings this revolutionary game to PS3 and makes it look even better with high-res graphics. And of course, you also get the fan-favorite Tekken Bowl! You can pick your character and compete against your friends in an intense ten frames at Mishima Lanes.

Tekken Blood Vengeance 3D

Tekken Blood Vengeance 3D takes everything you know and love about the Tekken universe; the characters, action and style, and packs it all into one kickass CG movie filled with legendary talent from the world of anime. You have an epic storyline penned by Dai Sato (Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex), pulse pounding music from Hitoshi Sakimoto (Appleseed), and expertly directed by Yoichi Mouri. Plus, it’s all made possible by Digital Frontier, the animation studio that has created the awesome Tekken 6 and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 CG intros. This is the Tekken you dream about in your sleep. Crazy, off-the-wall choreographed fight scenes, unbelievable visuals and Mokujins… well, I won’t spoil that part.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue

The slice of the game everyone is hyped for! Yes, Western Tekken fans will be able to get their hands on the game that is sweeping Japanese arcades today. The Tekken Team wanted to give fans of the series a special gift to places where the arcade will not be officially available. With Prologue you will get four fighters; Ling Xiaoyu, Alisa Bosconovitch, Devil Jin, and Kazuya in his Devil state, all decked out in exclusive Tekken Blood Vengeance costumes. Rest assured, what you are getting with Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue is not stripped down in terms of gameplay. You are getting the full suite of gameplay features found in the current iteration of the arcade game.

And that’s everything. We made sure to pack as much as we could in there for all the loyal Tekken fans. And be sure to pick up that Limited Edition if you get the chance — that art book is something special and the Tekken Hybrid soundtrack is candy for your ears.

I just got a ton of new games since my bday was over 2 weeks ago, in the middle of playing Zelda: Skyward Sword, need to beat the final boss in Chrono Cross, also playing Sonic Generations on 3DS, and Super Mario 3D Land, will definitely ask for this for the holiday season, then I would need to get a 2nd ps3 controller for when my older brother comes home.

Also i had noticed that the character models in tekken tag 2 are soo much better than tekken 6′s plastic doll look.

    I’m glad you like the model designs! Make sure to check out the “Model Viewer” to get a full feel of the character design.

It looks good, but with no online multi player…the retro appeal and bonus stuff will not win me over. Don’t get me wrong, Tag Tournament was a great game!

Pre-ordered Limited Edition, I can’t wait =)

I started playing Tekken on TTT n being a fan since then, I’m anxious to see it in HD.

And just bought a 3D TV too, so my first 3D movie on it will be Tekken for sure XD

Is the Tekken Blood Vengeance blu-ray also available separately?


     

    + “Filthie” Rich Bantegui on November 23rd, 2011 at 10:30 am said:

    TEKKEN Blood Vengeance is part of the 3-part-package. It’ll be a nice break from the juggle, counters, side-stepping and combos action.

Been a Tekken fan since the original on PS1! Got this today also. Was thrilled when this was first announced, even more hyped when TTT2P was thrown in. Nice Extra!!

Just how much do I love Tekken Tag? Enough that I bought a launch NTSC-J PS2 in preparation for the Japanese launch of TTT. Then got the US version again months later.

And now this.

hey im curious,is tekken tag tournament 2 ps3 exclusive since this bundle is exclusive to ps3 please answer just wanted to know it would be great if it was either way i already played both games and watched the movie and i have to say its my second favorite game this year and ive boughten every major release but KILLZONE stole my life!TEKKEN fan 4 life!


35

+ DCS-Tekken on November 22nd, 2011 at 10:49 pm said:

@33 There hasn’t been anything stated by Namco that Tag 2 wil only be PS3… But i think all Fighting Games should be PS3 all the way… And with HOME Item’s!

@28 yeah i see the store did update and no HOME Costumes today. So most likely since these are Home item’s we’ll have to wait till Thursday’s Home Update then for Home Item’s! Since there not DLC Game item’s that come out on tue…. AWW!

The wait alone is still driving me Insane! LOL!

Would love to get the collectors edition Home Costume Code/s if anyone has them available. Checking eBay and not seeing any at the moment.

Excited to pick this up! I decided to pop in TEKKEN 6 last night and finally came around to earning the platinum trophy for it. I remember playing TEKKEN Tag Tournament as a PS2 launch title and played it for hours with my buddies.

+ halfkimchi on November 26th, 2011 at 8:53 pm said:

I am most likely going to get this, but it would be infinitely better if tekken tag had multiplayer capabilities. Would that be possible with an update or something?
