Tekken To Tag Onto Nintendo 3DS And Wii U

By Ishaan . June 7, 2011 . 11:04pm

Tekken will finally be making its return to Nintendo platforms. Namco Bandai are developing unnamed Tekken games for both the Nintendo 3DS and for the Wii U.


While Namco haven’t announced any specifics regarding the two games, Tekken on Wii U was displayed at Nintendo’s E3 media briefing. It showed the player customizing Tekken characters’ appearances by drawing over them on the tablet-like Wii U controller. These customized models were then reflected in the game.

  • Oh man, this just keeps getting better and better!^_^

  • And now we must brace for an infinite cascade of “penis faces.”

      Here is one “Like”, not just for the assuredly accurate prediction of “penis faces”, but also for the description of it being an “infinite cascade”. Never have penis faces sounded so majestic.

    If it’s Tekken, I’m pretty much sold already. Tekken on a Ninty console is a done deal for sucking up my moneyz.

    Kinda wondering what this would be.  I can’t see Tekken Tag 2 hitting consoles before fall of 2012, and quite probably 2013, and Tekken 7 is likely years away as well.  Could well be more Tekken 6 or the HD version of Tekken Tag 1 that PS3 is getting.

  • Nice goatee. ^_^

  • I hope the #Tekken game for the #WiiU would be #TTT2 or a Tekken 6 port.  #WishfulThinking, but how about 3?  I would love to pwn everybody with Eddy Gordo in it.

    no one talk about the controller yet? i’m not sold playing on something that heavy ._. then again, this is nintendo we are talking about, probably buy this to play this scenario again.

      The Wii U controller seems to be very light actually, contrary to what many may think based on the size

    • Guest

      Word is the controller is as light as a DS

  • Any word on an arcade stick? 

    Playing Tekken on any kind of pad is not my thing, Wii U or not.

  • Where’s yo curleh mustache at?!

  • Guest

    Gintama Wii did that first

  • PrinceHeir

    so is this a different Tekken or Tekken Tag 2(when the hell is this game coming out?)

  • That’s it, everyone is getting curly moustaches.
