Tekken 6 for PlayStation Portable is another installment in one of the most popular series of fighting games of all time. It is the second edition of King of Iron Fist Tournament for the PSP console. This version features all the elements of the regular editions for home consoles. This applies also to the additional contents brought by the Bloodline Rebellion expansion released for the slot machine version. The game was developed by Namco Bandai.

Plot

Created by Katsuhiro Harada, the plot in Tekken 6 for PlayStation Portable has its roots in the fifth installment. Jin Kazama took the title of his great-grandfather Jinpachi Mishima (the main boss in the previous installment), getting in charge of Mishima Zaibatsu. G Corporation are the only ones standing in his way to absolute power. It is led by Kazuya Mishima, who is Jin's father. As could be expected, the sixth edition of King of Iron Fist Tournament is soon announced.

Mechanics

The portable version of Tekken 6 allows to play as any of the characters included in the regular version for home consoles. Thus the game offers many well-known fighters suprising the players with their skills for years already. For instance, one can play as Jin Kazama, Kazuya, King, Christie Monteiro, Dragunov, Hwoarang, Marduk or Nina Williams. A set of new characters was also included. Among them, the player can find Bob, Leo, Miguel Caballero Rojo, Zafina, Alisa Bosconovitch, Lars Alexandersson, Azazel (the main boss) and NANCY-MI847J.

Tekken 6 for PlayStation Portable contains a few exclusive elements. According to the creators, one can find new arenas, as well as new items (such as clothes) in this version. The game offers an Ad-Hoc multiplayer mode allowing to play against friends within the closest area. It is also possible to send the so-called ghost containing data on the player's character to a special server. Once another player has downloaded the data, it imitates a living opponent.

Technical aspects

Tekken 6 for PlayStation Portable was remodeled in order to fit into the specifics of this platform. Fortunately, it does not mean the PSP version is deficient in any important aspect. The visuals were deprived of unique special effects and high-quality textures however, the graphics are still more than satisfactory, making an even better impression than the PSP version of Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection.

Tekken 6 for PlayStation 3 is another edition of a popular fighting game and the first installment to be released beyond the PlayStation consoles. As usual, the game was first released on slot machines, receiving the Bloodline Rebellion expansion. Although the console version has no such subtitle, it contains all the additions brought by that expansion.

Plot

Created by Katsuhiro Harada, the plot in Tekken 6 for PlayStation 3 has its roots in the fifth installment. Jin Kazama took the title of his great-grandfather Jinpachi Mishima (the main boss in the previous installment), getting in charge of Mishima Zaibatsu. G Corporation are the only ones standing in his way to absolute power. It is led by Kazuya Mishima, who is Jin's father. As could be expected, the sixth edition of King of Iron Fist Tournament is soon announced.

Mechanics

The creators delivered an impressively large number of controllable characters in this installment greater than ever before, for the game offers over forty fighters, including nearly all the characters from Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection (excluding Jinpachi Mishima). However, apart from the well-known warriors, the game features eight new ones, including Bob, Leo, Miguel Caballero Rojo, Zafina, Alisa Bosconovitch, Lars Alexandersson, Azazel (the main boss) and NANCY-MI847J. Obviously, each character has their own fighting style based on real-existing martial arts, such as karate, kung fu, judo, taekwondo, capoeira or kick-boxing. Thus the player is required to apply different tactics. The game features several innovative elements as well. These include mainly an ability to block aerial attacks or the so-called Rage System which is enabled when the player's character has less than 5 per cent of their total health. The fighter rages against the enemy and deals significantly greater damage as a result. Furthermore, the player is capable of using different items allowing to perform additional special attacks.

Technical aspects

Tekken 6 for PlayStation 3 offers amazing visuals fighter models are very detailed and the player is capable of changing their clothes, haircuts and equipment. Also, the arenas the fighting takes place on were created with great care and each represents a different atmosphere. For example, it can be a Japanese temple on the background of sunset or a city ruined by war. Additionally, the arenas are destructible and different elements of them can be crushed, including even walls and floors.
