The daddy of fighting games comes to PSP

Historic moment for classic PlayStation series

Packed with exclusive new features
 

17th February 2006 - The wait is over, the battle has been won and victory is complete. TekkenTM, the legendary fighting franchise, is to make its debut this Summer on PlayStationPortable (PSP). Having launched ten years ago on the original PlayStation, Tekken joins the lofty heights of franchises such as WipEoutTM and Ridge RacerTM which have now appeared on every generation of PlayStation hardware.

TekkenTM Dark Resurrection for PSP takes all the top elements from the latest arcade version of the world's best-loved fighting game and introduces a host of new, PSP-exclusive features to deliver great mobile gaming.

As you would expect from any Tekken game, the graphics are razor sharp, pushing the PSP to its limits. Two new characters from the arcade version, Dragunov and Lili, allow PSP owners the chance to try out some new moves. With the return of classic fighter, Armor King, the list of combatants goes up to a jaw-shattering 30 characters, each ready to fight across 19 ass-kicking stages. In addition to the conventional arcade set-up, a variety of new game modes deliver a "play anytime, anywhere" experience, perfect for gaming on the go, and the inclusion of wireless two-player, head-to-head combat means that you'll be able to stuff your mates any time, any place.

With extra items to customise your fighter and new movie sequences, exclusive to the PSP, Tekken: Dark Resurrection is the ultimate beat'em-up experience. You'll need to fight harder than ever before to rise through the ranks and beat down all opposition. With competition this intense, it's a good thing you can take the PSP anywhere to help hone your fighting skills...

Have you got what it takes to be crowned the King of Iron Fist?
