Back at E3 in June, Namco Bandai announced Tekken Hybrid, a Blu-Ray release that includes not only Namco’s upcoming Tekken: Blood Vengeance CG movie, but also a HD remake of the original Tekken Tag Tournament, all exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
Apparently, that’s not the only thing Namco Bandai has in store for Tekken fans. At San Diego Comic Con over the weekend, Namco announced that Tekken Hybrid will also include a playable demo for Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
Despite confirmation of a demo, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 still wasn’t formally announced to be heading to consoles any time soon. Considering they’re going to be providing a demo, however, it seems likely we’ll at least be hearing something more soon.
Tekken Hybrid still doesn’t have an official release date, but Amazon is currently listing the blu-ray for release on December 27. Tekken: Blood Vengeance is set to be shown in select theaters in the US tomorrow, July 26.
Tekken: Blood Vengeance was directed by Namco Bandai’s Youichi Mouri, the man behind the opening cinematics for Tekken 5 and Tekken 6. The script was penned by Dai Sato, who you anime fans may recognize as the scriptwriter for Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.
