In what has to go as one of the quickest announcement-to-launch windows in gaming history, Namco Bandai revealed Tekken Revolution to the world just last Saturday and today the free-to-play fighting game makes its debut on the PlayStation 3.

Eight characters will be available in the game, with players able to compete against AI opponents or going online to take the fight to other humans in Ranked and Player matches.

Here’s some more info from Tekken Revolution’s official description:

The game also features new bone-crunching Special Arts and Critical Arts moves designed to help newcomers deliver hard-hitting attacks and advanced players to employ new strategies with their favorite fighters. For the first time in TEKKEN history players will be able to level-up their characters, increasing three key attributes; Strength, Endurance and Vigor, to create a combatant tuned to individual play styles. Develop a defensive tank character with high HP to withstand knockout blows while offense focused players can create a damage-inflicting character with low health but high critical hit rates to devastate opponents with a flurry of attacks.

As for why it’s on the PS3 and not the Xbox 360? Well, Tekken Game Director Katsuhiro Takada has a painfully blunt answer for that.

Have you given Tekken Revolution a shot yet? How’s the cash shop look? We’d love to hear your thoughts!

  1. Problem solved. This time I scrolled down and found the game. Why do we get f2p games on searching but not in the list on the store. I believe this is intentional as dcuo also didnt show up in the list of all ps3 games. very annoying

  2. Where the heaven on psn store is this game available for download . I can’t find . Psn store is very annoying sometimes.

  3. I think this is an amazing idea. I’ve even looked at the cash shop options, and right now there are only premium coins wich are 0.99 for one, 2.49 for 5 or 4.99 for 10. not bad since premium coins only extend the amount of matches you can play/ number of times you can play arcade mode. premium tickets are the exact same but you are given them on occasions and can’t buy them. I would like to see some sort of way to spend premium tickets and coins to unlock specific characters instead of building gift points and hoping to get the one you want. I know alissa is in the game since I have fought her AI and I want to unlock her.

    • They actually have it at 3 for $.99, 10 for $2.49(I believe its 10) and 30 for $4.99. So its really not bad. I haven’t bought any and I went on a long 11 win streak during Ranked matches so i kept getting a Premium ticket back, so thus far I have been enjoying that part of the game. My only real beef with the game is a lack of an actual training mode. It’s been ages since I played Tekken 6 and it would of been nice if there was a training mode(like there is in EVERY other fighting game out there) so I can get back in the swing of things better. I still haven’t dug deep enough into my memory to remember King’s combination throws. I’ll probably have to go on gamefaqs and look up the ones in Tekken 6 since they’re probably the same.

      • Well I found the command list for the moves… >_> solves 98 of the problems but not having a training mode is still bothersome lol.

  4. lol So MicroShaft didn’t want F2P games on their shitty console? Windows 8, XB1 and now this… They really want to bury themselves….

  5. I freaking hate the new store i can’t even search for what I want I type three letters and it doesn’t let my type the rest…..

    • MMOBOMB is a site were you can browse F2P games plus F2P is coming to consoles once PS4 release might as well start now on PS3 and Xbox…
