TEKKEN Tag Tournament HD
Originally released on PlayStation 2, TEKKEN Tag Tournament gave players a new kind of freedom with the TEKKEN fighting engine. With the introduction of a partner tag system, you could now set up new combos and play styles with teams rather than individual characters.
And now you can experience this PlayStation classic remastered in full HD for PS3, and complete with Trophy support. Pair up in the tag-team arena with the likes of King, Jun and Kazuya Mishima, and unlock the classic TEKKEN Bowl mode in this definite title for the fighting genre.

123w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has shared an EVO 2K update today, with details on both Tekken Hybrid and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue as follows:
I spent the weekend at the EVO Championship Series, a mecca for fighting-game competitors and home to the biggest Street Fighter IV, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Tekken 6, Mortal Kombat tournaments in the world.
This year, I'm told, EVO attendance spiked sharply to nearly 8,000 attendees – enough to strain the confines of the biggest ballroom in one of Las Vegas's larger resort hotels.
With EVO's popularity soaring in recent years, it's become common to see legendary figures in fighting game design prowling the demo stations, studying player reactions and answering questions.
At EVO I caught up with Katsuhiro Harada, the outgoing game director for Tekken since its inception on the PSone. I particularly wanted to discuss this November's PS3-exclusive Tekken Hybrid, the upcoming Blu-ray compilation that will include CG film Tekken: Blood Vengeance 3D, an enhanced version of the seminal PS2 fighter Tekken Tag Tournament, and an appetizer in the form of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue.
