(August 7, 2009) – NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc., and revered webcomic, Penny Arcade, today announced a limited comic strip series for TEKKEN 6, the latest installment to the blockbuster fighting video game franchise. Launching today, the six-part series is an entertaining take on the mysterious past of one of TEKKEN 6’s exclusive characters.

A must-have for fighting aficionados, TEKKEN 6 sees the return of many familiar faces and new characters to create the largest line-up in franchise history. Adding to the already robust gaming experience, dynamic and destructible environments will enable players to punch their enemies through concrete walls or kick them through floors to open a whole new battleground. Players can also take the battle online for classic match-ups and to compete for world domination. Furthermore, an impressive real-time motion blur effect has been implemented to provide the richest visuals the series has ever seen.
Featuring a new Scenario Campaign mode, players are introduced to a unique hybrid control system that combines conventional fighting game controls with free movement. This system allows them to progress through the story and mow down hordes of enemies while still enjoying fighting game action either alone or cooperatively online. For the first time in the series, players will have an arsenal of staffs, machine guns, flame throwers, and even giant robots at their disposal.
