Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion Gets A Worldwide Release Next Fall

t6 The reason why Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion wasn’t playable at Namco Bandai’s Tokyo Game Show booth is it won’t be coming out until fall of next year. Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion also won’t be a PlayStation 3 exclusive since it’s being developed as an Xbox 360 game too. This will be the first game in the Tekken series to get released on the Xbox 360 unless Namco Bandai releases Tekken 3 for Xbox Live Arcade a few months before Tekken 6 comes out a la Soulcalibur.

    If the 360 version is the cause of this longer wait then I simply aint cool with that. Most of us expected a console release about now. Heck, January/February would have been cool but Fall 2009? First FFXIII gets it’s delay now this. Anywho, now that there’s plenty of time left, get rid of that horrible bound system!

    FFXIII’s delay has nothing to do with the 360 port… I doubt this does either honestly, Namco likely wants to give Blood Rebellion a nice AC window and it’s not like the PS3 rev ever had a date anyway.

    That said, how long until the last holdout (MGS4) makes it way over?

    The long wait does seem a bit odd but then again, Tekken ports always seem to take forever. Hopefully by then I’ll have a PS3 since I much prefer its controller for fighting games.

    Umm, FFXIII’s delay IS down to the 360. SE have stated already the Japanese PS3 version will get released as normal but the western release will be held until the 360 version is complete for a simultaneous release. Namco are most likely doing the same thing with Tekken 6.

    Tekken 5 on PS2 actually came out pretty quickly. Was only a mere few months…then DR came out in arcades and made people angry.

    The only info in regards to a launch date was “after SCIV” but I don’t think anyone expected it to be so far after.

    There’s no delay, work on the 360 port won’t start until the PS3 version is finished. Localization and porting will happen simultaneously, but honestly, when was the last time we had a FF localization ready anywhere even close to JP release? If we get the international release 9 months to a year later… well that’s more or less standard for the series anyway.

    Tekken’s different, we got T1/4/5 relatively quick (like a few months quick) but there was about a year between AC and home releases for T2/Tag/5DR and nearly two years for T3. T6 will be about average for the series, about a year based after Bloodline Rebellion (which is what the PS3/360 ports are based off). Even if it was still exclusive, it’s possible we’d see this sort of window for the home release as that’s not at all unusual.

    tekken 6 bloodline rebellion will be the best tekken game ever , but putting it on microsoft xbox 360 is just plain wrong .
