Tekken Revolution is a possibility for PS Vita
What's potentially better than a free-to-play fighter that's now established with a decent following of people to play with online? Obviously, you can't improve on the price, and you don't have to worry about people that break the bank to upgrade the character. Seems like the only way to make it better is to bring the game with you. That's what Tekken creator and director Katsuhiro Harada is hoping for with Tekken Revolution.
Despite being shot down by Microsoft to bring the game to the Xboxes, he still has plans for Revolution's future. When asked by a fan about the possibility for the pugilist becoming available for a bit of gaming on the go, Harada told his followers via Twitter that if there's enough interest, he'll bring the fighter onto Sony's PS Vita for some mobile bashing. A port isn't confirmed, but remains a possibility.
"If the number of downloads of PS3 becomes large, I'll port to Vita," were Harada's exact words.
If you haven't tried it, and you consider yourself a fighter fan, do give it a try. At least once the PSN maintenance is all said and done with. It's a humble game, and a nice trip down memory lane for people who actually remember jaunts to the local arcade.
If you're a Tekken regular, you'll easily be able to jump right in. And for newbies, an arcade mode offers the best practice you can get before you join in with the veterans, and all for 100% less than a used copy of Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Thankfully, the spammers and juggle heavy fighters are few and far between, but like with any game you play online, there's still some bad apples in the bunch.
It looks that for the time being, this fighter is staying a PlayStation 3 exclusive. As for the future of Revolution, Harada certainly has his ideas, but he's not sharing all of 'em. Personally, I know that while beggars can't be choosers, I'd certainly love a few more characters here and there, just to keep things interesting. Sound off with some of your own ideas below.
