The lights are on
After a brief teaser and the announcement of a June 11 launch date yesterday, more details have emerged for Tekken Revolution.
You can check out an expanded trailer for the game below, which featured what was shown yesterday, plus some added footage.
Initially, the game will feature eight "iconic" Tekken characters. There will be the option to take on AI in arcade matches, but considering the free to play nature of the game, the meat of the experience will be in the multiplayer. There will be new Special Arts and Critical Arts moves designed to help newcomers. You will also be able to level up your fighter for the first time increasing Strength, Endurance, and Vigor attributes for your character.
Tekken Revolution is coming exclusively to PlayStation 3 on June 11.

I am happy about this news. I love a good no ranged bs fighting game.
Tekken is my favorite fighting series.
I'm a little bummed cuz none of my mains are in(Bryan, Lee, And Feng Wei). But hey its free! Also why was Jack 6 in there? Will he be playable. The stage Moonlit Wilderness is in! so epic. Looking forward to this game.
Actually, I didn't ask for it, but it was a pleasant surprise.
as long as King is in the 8 i won't have to spend a dime.
Nice, can't wait to download that on my birthday! And hopefully Bob gets added with the other characters!
It's been a long time, but I'm up for some Tekken:)
My guess is that Tekken is planning on adding new features, but would like to test some out with the audience before adding them to the series permanently. Tekken has been kind of stagnant since 5, and they want to add some new elements to keep their huge core audience satisfied while growing their fanbase. This is more of an experiment than a gift...
I'll download this. I just took Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection Online off my PS3 (in favor of Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, which was on sale for $4.99 last week). Wanna see what new features they play around with and how this is structured as a Free-to-Play game... Tekken is famous (infamous?) for thousands of cosmetic items. Not hard to imagine attaching some microtransactions to those.
Really waiting for Ridge Racer Driftopia though.
