Stirred by Sega's announcement
of an Xbox 360 version of Virtua Fighter 5
, comes rumor that Tekken 6
is also bound for Microsoft's console. The source of the rumor is the same anonymous "IGN insider" who has been apparently credited with breaking the Virtua Fighter 5
news before Sega confirmed it. If his latest spill proves valid, expect Namco Bandai's next Tekken
on 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year. There is no indication that this multiplatform initiative would extend to the recently released
downloadable version of Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection
, which looks to remain a PS3 exclusive.
While console versions of the Tekken
series have traditionally be reserved for Sony platforms, T
ekken 3 was eventually released for Dreamcast Tekken 3
was emulated on Dreamcast; and Tekken Advance
was specifically designed and released for Game Boy Advance. If Tekken 6
does land on Xbox 360, the move is not unprecedented.
