Wonderfully Excessive Tekken 6 Trailer Released
The Tekken series, initially released in 1994 as an arcade game, is a well-established 3D fighting game. The last few instalments have made the shift out of the traditional arcade setting and onto the PlayStation console.
In a first for the series, Tekken 6 will also be available for XBox 360, which will very likely widen its popularity and ensure solid sales.
Though I’m not a hardcore fan of fighting games and usually wouldn’t be too excited about the release of one, I make an exception for Tekken. Growing up, me and my friends lived as arcade nomads, travelling from arcade to arcade looking for new Tekken players to challenge. Memories of wasting enormous amounts of quarters have a permanent place in my heart, so news of a new home version on XBox 360 piques my interest.
The new trailer showcases plenty of in-game footage, showing off some new characters, including a really fat guy, which I’m sure most Tekken fans are excited about.
And for anyone who isn’t familiar with Tekken, the trailer is chock full of over the top cinematic action that anyone can enjoy. It views like a summer blockbuster movie trailer, complete with glimpses at some of the game’s campy but entertaining cut scenes. These scenes include stuff like explosions and a character driving around on a motorcycle for no apparent reason then shattering an entire glass building with one punch.
