Tekken goes another round with PSP

Namco Bandai confirms sixth King of Iron Fist tournament will be appearing on Sony's handheld in addition to previously known 360, PS3 versions.


Last year, Sony lost one of its long-time exclusive franchises when Namco Bandai revealed that Tekken 6 would be arriving on the Xbox 360 as well as the PlayStation 3. Today, Sony received a consolation prize of sorts when Namco expanded the list of platforms for the fighting game to include the PlayStation Portable.

Kid n' Play have been lost to the sands of time, but Paul remains.

As with its console counterparts, Tekken 6 for the PSP is set for release this fall. However, Namco is promising a handful of features unique to the handheld edition. The PSP version of the game will include extra stages and customization items, as well as additional unspecified content.

Tekken 6 players on the go will also be able to upload their character data so that other players can download and fight against artificial-intelligence "ghosts" based on their own tendencies.

Tekken 6 will be the series' second appearance on the PSP. Tekken: Dark Resurrection was released on the portable to much acclaim in July of 2006, and remains GameSpot's highest-rated PSP game of all time.
