342w ago - If there is one 3D fighting game that I must buy, it's always the Tekken series, Tekken in chinese sounds much cooler than Virtua Fighter and I thought the character design was awesome as well. Katsuhiro Harada, series producer including latest entry, Tekken 6, was at Taipei Game Show 2008 last weekend on SCET's (SCE Taiwan) invitation and talk to visitors about life and the game itself.

While there is no further news on Tekken 6, it's good to know that the developers are quite deep into porting the arcade version to the PS3 and the online mechanisms being worked on. Harada also shared the story behind developing the series, saying Sega's Virtua Fighter is the main inspiration for the game back in 1994.

On to the content of the subsequent games in the series, Harada says that most of them are feedbacks from players. And yes, Roger Jr., the kingaroo and panda are all requests by fans of the series. All the characters from the previous games in the series will be making their PS3 debut, this is because every characters appears to have their very own fans and the developers are terrified that a girl threatened to kill herself after news of her favorite character being dropped.

As for the online modes, the experience of Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection Online has given them enough knowledge to make 60fps online fight a possibility. The producer also mention possible downloadable content like new characters and data download. On future, Harada hopes there is a chance to do some crossover with other fighting series, something along the line of "Tekken vs Virtua Fighter vs CAPCOM vs SNK". Finally, Harada says while fans of respective series may see it as fierce rivalry, the developers behind these fighting games are actually very close together

Harada also revealed that 15 of the current developers including himself have lost their girl friends due their dedication in making the game. Here's hoping they can finally have one after Tekken 6 is done.
