Tekken 6 is here, and for fans the wait has been a long one. If you don’t know the Tekken series, that’s one hell of a rock you’ve been under. Its claim to be the premiere fighting series has been shaken a good few times over the years – and there are plenty out there who have never recognised its charms – but the long standing popularity of the game is impossible to dispute or ignore. It’s time, then, to once again compete in the King of Iron Fist Tournament.
Those who don’t follow the arcade scene may not know it, but Tekken 6 on PS3 and 360 is actually the home release of Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion (BR), the latest arcade release. This means that since Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection (DR), the cast has grown dramatically – six brand new characters to be exact. From the original Tekken 6 we have Bob, Miguel, Leo and Zafina. With BR came two more: Alisa and Lars.
