No Tekken 6 For PS3, But Bloodline Rebellion Is Confirmed
Uh-oh...did we just hear the collective screams of frustration from hundreds of thousands of PlayStation 3 owners around the globe? Yep, the cloud of irritation is currently passing our window; it's very dark, and very threatening.
But wait! The skies will rapidly clear when the disgruntled group hears the good news, which should right the wrong. According to breaking news first delivered by IGN during one of their recent podcasts, it seems the original Tekken 6 - released in the arcades in 2007 - will not be coming to the PS3. However, Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion, which is essentially the arcade version with a bunch of extras, is headed to Sony's platform. All of this was taken from Namco Bandai's special pre-TGS press conference yesterday, so although we don't have official clarification, we have to assume this report is accurate. Fighting fans have been patiently waiting for Tekken 6 for quite a long time now, and if Namco didn't plan to deliver the game in some form, the backlash wouldn't have been pretty. But it's certainly good to know the game is indeed coming, although we're not entirely sure just how different Bloodline Rebellion is from the original arcade version. Hopefully, we'll receive more details on that in the very near future.
Now all we're hoping for is a release date to come out of TGS; we've waited long enough, so when will a Tekken installment finally come to the PS3? We're sure this new version should satisfy the fans, but not if they have to wait another year...
