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 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.
