Tekken Revolution gets OFLC rating

What on earth is Tekken Revolution? We don't know, but it's been rated by the OFLC. Along with Tekken Arena, it looks like there's some more fun for the brand on its way.


Namco Bandai grabs Tekken Arena trademark

Namco Bandai has grabbed the trademark for Tekken Arena in Europe. No word on what they plan to do with it yet, but I'm guessing it's...Tekken related.


MMA fighter uses Tekken to train, come up with moves

"I’d go into practice mode and have the computer just spar me back and forth like regular training. I would just keep playing until I see something that I'd do or I like, and I would just pick up on it. For me, I don't know, visually it was almost as if my body just adjusted to it, so when it came time to spar moves that I would see would come back, like that! Every time I would see a cool move on Tekken, I would just practice it till I got good at it. When I did it in training people said, ‘what the hell is that!’” - Uriah Hall, MMA fighter

If Hall's opponents start to catch on, they could end up playing the game as well and then learning his moves before he comes out with them!
