Tekken Card Tournament Is Out Now, Collectable AR Cards Coming This June

Namco Bandai spun the Tekken series off into the ever popular trading card game genre. Tekken Card Tournament is a turn based fighting game. You have three options: focus, strike, and block. Instead of relying on just frames, Tekken Card Tournament is based on rock, paper, and scissors. After you choose an attack Kazuya or whoever you choose as your fighter will execute it. Tekken Card Tournament has a multiplayer mode and in it’s real time.

 

While the game is a free download extra card packs are an in-app purchase. Just like trading card booster packs you don’t know which cards you’ll get. In June, players will be able to buy packs of physical cards. You can scan QR codes on these cards to transfer them into the game. Why should you get physical cards instead? Well, you have a better chance of getting cool cards this way.

Physical cards also have augmented reality capabilities. You take a photo with your iPhone or Android device and a 3D model of a Tekken character will join you in the picture.

    I`d be more inclined to buy the physical cards if the game could be played apart from an electronic device.

  • That guy who hates Spike

    I actually like these “Collectable” game campaigns. Especially done well, like this.

  • Adol Christin

    They just pulled a Square Enix…

  • Spirit Macardi

    This would appeal to me more if it was a card game based off Namco game franchises in-general (I’d run a Klonoa/Tales deck!).

    Also if it had motorcycles.
