SAN JOSE, Calif., (February 14, 2012) – Leading video game publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., today announced TEKKEN® 3D PRIME EDITION is now available in North America for the Nintendo 3DS™ system. The unique functionality of the Nintendo 3DS takes the famous King of Iron Fist Tournament into the third-dimension for the first time, delivering a more immersive and dynamic TEKKEN® experience with more than 40 characters.
TEKKEN 3D PRIME EDITION will make the most of the Wi-Fi functionality of the Nintendo 3DS, delivering fast-paced dynamic battles with impressive graphics at 60fps. And with the Nintendo 3DS system’s StreetPass™ feature, nearby players can obtain TEKKEN Cards even when their systems are asleep.
TEKKEN 3D PRIME EDITION takes the hard-hitting and explosive fighting engine from the TEKKEN arcade and console games, and gives players the fiercest fights to ever land on a portable gaming system. Fight against a continuous stream of opponents with minimal health regeneration between rounds in Special Survival, beat up A.I. brawlers in Quick Battle, or show your supremacy against others either locally or Wi-Fi through Versus Battle. Choose from a huge roster of TEKKEN characters including Young Heihachi’s first appearance on a home console system.
As an industry first, the Game Card will also include the full-length CG animated feature film TEKKEN: Blood Vengeance™, produced by Digital Frontier (Resident Evil: Degeneration, Death Note, Appleseed) and directed by Youichi Mouri (opening movies for TEKKEN 5 and TEKKEN 6: Bloodline Rebellion).
TEKKEN 3D PRIME EDITION is rated “T” for teen by the ESRB with a MSRP of $39.99. For more information on TEKKEN 3D PRIME EDITION, please visit: www.namcobandaigames.com; http://www.facebook.com/tekken; http://www.twitter.com/Harada_TEKKEN; or http://www.twitter.com/FilthieRich.
