Tekken 3D Prime Edition dated for North America

Tekken 3D Prime Edition will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS on February 14th 2012, Namco Bandai Games America has announced.

The King of Iron Fist Tournament is brought truly into the third-dimension for the first time, promising a more immersive and dynamic Tekken experience in which you can choose from a character roster boasting over forty characters.

You’ll be able to enjoy fast-paced dynamic battles online with impressive graphics at 60 frames per second, and exchange collectable Tekken cards with other players through the handheld’s StreetPass functionality.

An industry first, the full-length CG animated feature film Tekken: Blood Vengeance, produced by Digital Frontier (Resident Evil: Degeneration, Death Note, Appleseed) and directed by Youichi Mouri (opening movies for Tekken 5 and Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion), will also be included on the Game Card.

“Tekken has a rich sixteen year legacy, with the franchise first appearing on the Nintendo platforms in 2001 with Tekken Advance for Game Boy Advance”, comments Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing at Namco Bandai Games America.

“With the unique abilities of the Nintendo 3DS, we’re able to show the characters of the epic franchise in a way that has never been seen before, and fans are going to love how Tekken’s return to Nintendo systems has taken the series to new levels.”

Tekken 3D Prime Edition will release across North America on February 14th 2012, and Europe on February 17th 2012.
