Namco has confirmed that it is bringing the classic arcade fighting game Tekken to iPhone, and it’s in the final stages of development.
Tekken was one of the earliest 3D fighting games, released back in 1994, and now it’s coming to iPhone. Could this be a reaction to Capcom’s Street Fighter IV? We think it is.
Namco hasn’t told us any more about the game, and Tekken won’t make an appearance at this week’s Game Developers Conference either, so we’ll have to keep on guessing for now. Will it be a port of the original? An iPhone version of the recent PSP edition of Tekken 6? Both are certainly feasible, but the latter would be more in-line with the standard set by Capcom.
With the game approaching the end of development, we should hopefully find out within the next month or so. Which would you prefer? The classic Tekken or a version of Tekken 6? Let us know in the comment section below.
