If you’re a fan of the Tekken franchise and wouldn’t mind playing the game on your phone, you’ll be pleased to learn that the folks at Bandai Namco have announced a new Tekken mobile game. The game will be available for both iOS and Android gamers, but it seems that at the moment it has been soft-launched only in Canada.
According to the game’s description, “Tekken, the world’s most successful fighting game franchise has been brought to mobile! Join Paul, Kazuya, Xiayou, Law, Panda, Nina, and all other famous fighters to engage in an intuitive, deep combat system featuring fighting techniques from all around the world. Take on the role of the Dojo Master, collecting, upgrading and battling with your favorite fighters from the legendary Tekken franchise!”
There will be over 100 characters to “collect”, and there will also be over 20 unique special moves for each fighter that can be upgraded and unlocked over time. As expected there will be online play so that players can fight against each other. For those who wouldn’t mind single-player, there is also a story mode that will expand on the world of Tekken.
The game is free-to-play but as expected, there will be in-app purchases so that could be worth taking into consideration.
