The First Cross Media Project based on the TEKKEN Franchise will be available this Year

 

 

SAN JOSE, Calif., (January 21, 2013) – NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. and Bandai Inc. today announced that TEKKEN CARD TOURNAMENT™ will soon be available in both North America and South America. TEKKEN CARD TOURNAMENT will bring the popular TEKKEN franchise to the card battle genre in two different phases: A free-to-play online card battle game for tablets, smartphones and web browsers will be available in the next few weeks, while physical booster card packs will arrive in stores later in the year.

 

TEKKEN CARD TOURNAMENT seamlessly integrates Namco’s high pedigree of fighting titles with Bandai’s expertise with physical card games by allowing the interactive card battle title to interact with the physical cards.The physical game booster packs available at retailers later this year can be played as a standalone card game, or added in players’ virtual game card deck by QR Code scanning. Scanning the game cards will give upgrades to online game characters or add a new character to the roster. In addition an Augmented Reality feature lets TEKKEN characters populate the real world simply by pointing a smartphone or tablet camera at the game cards.

 

The digital game can also be played as a standalone, allowing players to enter the King of Iron Fist tournament by competing in this unique free-to-play game set in the TEKKEN universe. The digital game will offer a unique gameplay experience but also amazing visuals on all devices. Strategically prepare your card deck and compete against players across all platforms anytime and everywhere.
