The King of Iron Fist Tournament has returned to a Nintendo console after a decade long absence in the form of Tekken 3D Prime Edition for the 3DS. The entire ensemble of characters from Tekken 6 is playable and the game is a visual feast of gorgeous graphics that can fit in your pocket. Local and online multiplayer, as well as the inclusion of the feature film Tekken: Blood Vengeance, round out the package. Few gameplay options and rough controls, however, make what could have been a flawless portable fighter another title that loses much of its quality in the console-to-handheld transition.
Another portable Tekken title is among us. Was anyone really asking for this game? I mean, don’t get me wrong, I am a huge fan of the series, but I just don’t see why this game needs to exist. Well, other than being on the 3DS, in case you don’t have a PSP in which you can play Tekken 6 on that. Nonetheless, 3D Prime Edition is still a solid game ofTekken, but offers nothing to advance the franchise.
