The ‘Big News’ involving the console versions of Tekken 6 being hinted at by Namco-Bandai’s official Tekken 6 Twitter, Tekkenbob, and Tekken fansite SD Tekken have been revealed to be…

AN OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE! October 27, 2009!!! Wow… what a surprise. Oh well. At least it’s official. This is the US release date- Europe, Japan and Asia releases will follow shortly after.

AND..!

The Tekken 6 Limited Edition Bundle. The set includes a Hori Wireless Fight Stick, a collectible Art Book and of course, a copy of the game. The bundle will set you back $149.99.

And that’s not all! NO!


Want Penny Arcade’s CTS to grace your game? Preorder your Tekken 6 from Gamestop.

As for the The Cardboard Tube Samurai costume… well, it’s a special DLC outfit for Yoshimitsu that’s part of a special Samurai Pack which also includes special ‘nobori’ or Japanese war banners as items usable for all characters in the game. You get the Samurai Pack along with a Tekken 6 Calendar when you preorder the game from Gamestop.

All in all… considering the hype built up… pretty underwhelming, and actually USELESS for me and Manila Tekkenites, since this offer is pretty much just for the US. Perhaps Play-Asia will eventually stock the bundle, but I’m not really interested… already have a Hori Stick in my Gaming Sanctum. As for the release date, it’s for the US, but well- I don’t really have to wait for an Asian release since PS3 is region-free… I can just pick up the US game once it drops.

Back to waiting for the game then. October 27, eh? Well. I guess I know what I’ll be doing during Halloween and the holiday break. Heheh…
