Tekken 6 has cleared the last hurdle on its long road to release. Having announced the game alongside Sony's PlayStation 3 in 2005, Namco Bandai today said that development has wrapped on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions of Tekken 6, and the fighter has gone gold in advance of its October 27 North American release date.
Namco Bandai's long-awaited competitive arcade fighter will be available in two retail configurations. The standard-edition package will retail for $59.99. Those looking to pick up a new fight stick can opt in to the Tekken 6 Wireless Fight Stick Bundle, which will be available for both the Xbox 360 and PS3 at participating retailers for $149.99. In addition to the game, the limited-edition bundle includes a Hori wireless fight stick, as well as a Tekken 6-themed art book.
Those who preorder Tekken 6 at GameStop will receive the downloadable Penny Arcade Samurai Pack. The downloadable content opens up the Cardboard Tube Samurai costume for the blade-wielding Yoshimitsu, as well as unlocks the limited-edition Samurai Battle Banners that can be applied to each of the game's 40 fighters. GameStop preorderers will also receive a Tekken 6-themed 2009-2010 calendar while supplies last.
In April, Namco Bandai said that Tekken 6 will also be coming to the PSP this fall, though the publisher did not provide an updated release window as part of today's announcement. For more on the console editions, check out GameSpot's previous coverage of Tekken 6.
