E3 2011: Tekken Hybrid Emerges
Well, this isn't a bad idea at all.
Namco Bandai Games America has announced Tekken Hybrid exclusively for the PlayStation 3. It's a collection featuring the new full-length 3D feature film, "Tekken Blood Vengeance 3D," and the remastered Tekken Tag Tournament HD.
The package also includes "additional content yet to be announced," but for more info, that slick movie will be presented as a special NCM Fathom event for one night only in over 375 theaters across North America on July 26. The home entertainment release of the film will come on Blu-Ray and DVD, but with full CG and the option of 3D, why pass on the Blu-Ray?
The screenplay was penned by Dai Sato ("Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex," "Cowboy Bebop") and the score has been composed by Hitoshi Sakimoto (Ogre Battle, Final Fantasy Tactics, Tekken 6). Handling the directing reigns is Youichi Mouri, who directed the opening cinemas for both Tekken 5 and Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion. said Carlson Choi, vice president of marketing at Namco Bandai Games America:
"Tekken Tag Tournament is considered one of the best titles in the Tekken franchise, and one of the greatest fighting video games of all time, so we’re thrilled to be bringing this property into HD for current generation gamers. Including the remake as part of TEKKEN Hybrid alongside TEKKEN Blood Vengeance 3D allows our passionate fans to immerse themselves in the storied histories of the Tekken characters on their path to the King of Iron Fist Tournament."
Oh man, do I remember Tekken Tag Tournament. So freakin' huge for the PS2 when that system launched.
