What is Tekken (series)?
Tekken is a competitive fighting game created and published by Namco. Originally an arcade game, versions exist for Windows, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wonder Swan, and Game Boy Advance. The story in each game in the series (with the exception of the non-canon game Tekken Tag Tournament) documents the events of the fictional martial arts tournament, The King of Iron Fist Tournament, with the game's chronological number corresponding with the current iteration of the tournament.The tournament is always hosted by a financial corporation called the "Mishima Zaibatsu", with the tournament prize generally being control of the company offered to the victor (who then is free to host the next King of Iron Fist tournament). The arcade versions are known to traditionally use PlayStation based hardware for each installment, and subsequently each arcade version was eventually made for its respective PlayStation.There are currently six main installments in the Tekken series. New Tekken games have been confirmed, one is a sequel to Tekken Tag Tournament, entitled Tekken Tag Tournament 2. It is currently in the development stages and it is planned to be released Summer 2011 in Japan. Other countries' planned release dates are yet unknown. Another upcoming Tekken game is Tekken X Street Fighter, which will be a Tekken vs. Street Fighter cross-over game using the Tekken style of game play, as opposed to Street Fighter X Tekken which will use the Street Fighter style of game play.
