Tekken 6 is the sixth main installment of the Tekken fighting game series; it was developed by Namco and published by Namco Bandai in 2009 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable.

The story follows from the last game where Jin Kazama has taken control of the Mishima Zaibatsu and seeming spiral out of control as the world goes to war; the fighters must struggle to survive the chaos as a powerful demon named Azazel rises from the negativity that has covered the world.

The aim of the game is to defeat the opponent by lowering their health to 0; this is done by attacking the enemy while also blocking and dodging to avoid taking damage.


There are three main types of gamemodes in Tekken 6: the Scenario Campaign, Online, and Offline. The Scenario Campaign is the story mode for the game and includes unique Arena battles for every character in the game; in addition to this, it can be played solo or with online co-op.

Online mode allows players to battle each other in both Ranked and casual matches; this mode allows players to fight each other online whereas a local PvP option is available in the Offline section.

The Offline type contains four gamemode options to select from; players and battle each other locally with the Versus mode or play quick solo matches against the computer with the Arcade mode. In addition to these, the player can train in the Practice mode or complete different challenges in the Time Attack Mode.

Players have over 30 unique characters to select from; each of them has individual special abilities however they mostly use the same basic attacks. There are also seven new playable characters in the game.

What's New

The game features a new Rage system that allows each character to deal more damage once their HP reaches a certain point; this has some limited customization and players can adjust the Rage Aura with different colors or visual effects.

The Bound system lets players use a heavy account against some airborne enemies; if they are midair and using a juggle combo, it's possible to use various possible moves to slam the opponent into the ground which causes them to become stunned. This system also works with parrying low attacks.

Console versions of the game include a new mode named Scenario Campaign which is a third person RPG style mode; the player has free movement in this mode and can pick up various weapons, items and power-up found throughout the world. When the player fights with a group of enemies, then the game switches back to the classic 2D Tekken fighting screen. Players can fight through this mode solo or with another player using online co-op.
