Quotes

Barry O’Neill, President of Namco Bandai Networks Europe

“Tekken Mobile brings one of the all-time great fighting games to the mobile phone for the first time in Europe. It has fantastic replay value which will keep gamers entertained time and again, with a faithfully reproduced combo system, progressive difficulty and unlockable content adding to the long term value of the game. The Bluetooth versus mode means you can battle your friends directly and adds a whole new challenge to gamers.”

“We’ve worked hard to recreate the core Tekken game experience and I’m really happy to see such a strong end result. It’s always difficult to take on the challenge of recreating such a complex game on mobile, and we’re delighted with what we’ve achieved. It’s very important that we’re able to give customers that value for money and we’ve enhanced that by giving people the chance to‘try before you buy’ with Namco Arcade on Facebook.”
