Hands-on with Console Tekken 6
Tekkenzone.net had a recent run-in with the home version of Tekken 6 (Xbox360) and had some comments about this more advanced build of the game.
Apparently they saw what was supposedly the full Opening Intro, and it is unsurprisingly composed of stuff that has been seen before (Zafina opening her temple doors, Bob vs bank robbers, the Tekken Force in the snowfield, etc) along with new animations (Zafina and her camel…?). They remarked though that one of the new stuff was Paul fighting Bryan, which isn’t really new- just stuff they apparently didn’t see in the US trailers.
As the game started up, the text ‘Looking for Downloadable Content’ kept appearing, so there may be indeed DLC in the future, even if at present none are being planned or announced.
The Main Menu has become a lot fuller since the E3 build (unfortunately they do not elaborate on all the items), with stuff divided in categories such as Offline and Online modes. The right side of the screen at the main menu now has a panel showing player rank, gold and achievements to date.
Loading times were, as seen in recent videos, long. However, the Namco-Bandai officials did say that installing the game to the HD will fix this.
Though still unfinished, the final Scenario Campaign mode will comprise of 42 levels.
The wireless stick will apparently require 2 AA batteries. Woohoo.
Apparently you can pretty much ‘create your own character’ with the large amount of customizations- again though… Tekken 6 does NOT have Character Creation ala Soulcalibur IV… it’s just Customization. No word on the actual interface, but I hope they improve this over the arcade version (which didn’t let you see the customizations before you bought them, etc).
Thanks to ZeroX for pointing us to the article, which you can read here. Tekken 6 is set for release on PS3 and Xbox360 this late October 2009.
