In a new interview regarding Tekken 6, Katsuhiro Harada, the game’s executive producer, reveals some rather juicy details on the upcoming fighter.
First off, he says that the multiplatform reactions were generally good, receiving comments such as “Wow, finally!” and “It makes sense from a software development viewpoint”. However, there were also many who were against it, but he says most of the feedback towards the announcement went something like: “I don’t care which platform. Just release the game as soon as possible!” You need to remember there are not as many arcades in the States as there are in Japan, so most NA gamers haven’t been able to experience Tekken 6 even in the arcades.
Tekken 6 will have a variety of minigames and modes for the console versions. “Building on that experience, we plan to have a major console mode. In addition to this main mode, other modes that are a staple of the series will be back, along with new and exciting features. In any case, Tekken 6 is not about just the game’s versus mode. There is a lot of console-specific content to enjoy.” Harada explains.
What’s most interesting is a brand new mystery online mode, that is something they “haven’t done before”. Haruda tells us “We’re currently developing an online feature other than online versus [mode]–something that we haven’t done before. It’s going smoothly so far, but I can’t go into any details at this moment.”
Question and answer sessions always leave us with even more questions, don’t they?
