Tekken 3D Prime Edition gets Australian release date

Australia enters King of The Iron Fist Tournament in February

Namco Bandai Australia has confirmed February 23rd for the release of Tekken 3D Prime Edition.


Almost a year after the release of the 3DS console, Tekken 3D Prime Edition will launch in Australia on February 23rd. Tekken looks set to challenge Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition, with the former running at a silky 60 frames per second in both 2D and 3D.

Tekken 3D has also squeezed a mammoth selection of 40 characters to choose from, along with all new stages to do battle in. Classic Tekken stages have also been redesigned for the 3DS and the gameplay is said to be more dynamic and realistic with the functionality that the 3DS console delivers.

To make the most of the 3DS features a Tekken trading card mini-game is included for use with the Street Pass. Another added bonus included with the game is the animated movie, Tekken: Blood Vengeance. Originally released with Tekken Hybrid for PlayStation 3, the story takes place between Tekken 5 and 6, and will be presented in full 3D.

Tekken 3D Prime Edition is the first Nintendo outing for the franchise since the Game Boy Advance's Tekken Advanced, back in 2002. Seems a lifetime ago doesn't it?
