Tekken 6 gets UK release date

Namco Bandai has announced an October 30 launch date for its hotly anticipated brawler Tekken 6 in UK territories.

In addition, the company also priced up both the Arcade Stick and Collector’s Edition bundles, which will be available for £149.99 and £69.99 each, respectively. The former includes a fighting stick, 100 page art-book and a copy of the game, while the latter features the game, art book, exclusive poster and a snazzy sweatshirt designed by the game’s art team.

Having triumphed in the previous tournament, Tekken 6 sees devil-infused Jin Kazama as the unscrupulous leader of the Mishima Zaibatsu, and decides to host the sixth King of the Iron Fist tournament in an effort to lure out his estranged father, Kazuya. The world’s most tenacious grandpa, Heihachi, also joins the brawl in an effort to reclaim the family business in what promises to be the most comprehensive entry in the franchise to date.

The game will be available for PlayStation 3, PSP and Xbox 360.
