A different kind of Tekken.

Okay, let me say this right up front- I am NOT a card game kind of person. When I first heard (and saw) Tekken Card Tournament (iOS/Android) several weeks ago, I just slapped my forehead in exasperation. I’ve been waiting for Tekken X Streetfighter or any hint of Tekken 7, and we get… THIS. Well, it’s a way of reaching a new crowd with a new direction or genre that should grow the franchise I guess. And to be fair, the game isn’t something like Yugioh or even Pokemon. It seems more like a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors where you choose your moves and see how they match up. Physical cards you can buy will let you setup a deck to use, and AR functions look neat. I just wish this game had incorporated Character Customization- that would have gotten me into it more.

As it is, I will try it this at least, but I can’t see myself buying the physical cards (not even sure they’ll be available in my neck of the woods). But hey, if you like card games why not give this a try? I’ll be playing Tekken 6 or Tekken Tag 2 in the meantime though, as I await a fighting game Tekken.

Time to deck your opponent.

Fighting Youtube gamer BuildingtheMeter posted quite a bit of footage of Namco-Bandai’s upcoming Tekken spinoff, Tekken Card Tournament. The game will be playable on browsers and smartphones when it comes out ‘soon’. TCT is a free-to-play game that features 3D models, AR (Augmented Reality) card support and cross-platform online play.
Judging from the footage, this is something more akin to rock-paper-scissors in a way, with cards corresponding to various moves. The graphics look like assets from Tekken 3DS, but I actually appreciate the game having at least new KO animations and lose poses. Hah.

More Card Battlin’ Action.

Really though- while I do like the animated parts, this isn’t for me. If I wanna pass the time till the next Tekken, I’ll play a Tekken game- a REAL Tekken game. Card battles… nope. Still, since it’s free I may check it out and put it on my iPad or Android phone when it comes out. Still hoping that Harada isn’t concentrating too much on this, and is really actually working on something with more real-time action. More as we get it then.
