Titled Tekken Card Tournament, the game will be distributed in two phases. First, it will be out as a free-to-play online card battle game "in the next few weeks" for mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, as well as for browsers. The company did not specify the mobile platforms at this point in time.

This will be followed by a physical version complete with booster packs that will be out later this year. The purchased cards can be used on the free-to-play version. Each card has a QR code that can be scanned into the game; either as an additional fighter or an upgrade for existing brawlers in a player's deck.

The games will be out for North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. For more information on Tekken Tag Tournament 2, check out GameSpot's coverage on the title.
