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!
