Tekken 6 E3 2005 Preshow Impressions

We check out Namco's teaser trailer for the previously unannounced PS3 fighter, Tekken 6.

by

Although the teaser trailer for Tekken 6 shown at today's Sony Computer Entertainment conference was only 30 seconds long, and even though it didn't show anything resembling gameplay, there's no denying the fact that Jin Kazama has never looked better. As Jin shows off some of the traditional karate moves that became a part of his repertoire when he ditched the Mishima-ryu fighting style, you can see sweat running down his face and flying off his arms when he throws a particularly violent-looking punch. At one point the camera zooms in for a close-up of Jin's shoulder, and you can even see a very subtle haze effect as if some of the perspiration is evaporating.

Whether or not the teaser footage of Jin is in any way representative of what we can expect to see in the game remains to be seen. Based on some of the other PS3 footage that we've seen, we certainly aren't ready to rule it out. But can we really expect the in-game characters of 2006 to look better than the rendered characters of 2005? Only time will tell.

We'll bring you more information on Tekken 6 as soon as it becomes available. "A new reality awaits," apparently.

I don't think that Tekken 6 can beat Oblivion as my favorite game, but I do think it can finally rule out Tekken 3. It's a shame that TTT, T4 and T5 couldn't defeat the great T3. Tekken 6 will, probably.
