Tekken, the popular fighting game, is finally available on Android and iOS devices. Bandai Namco had announced the launch of the game for mobile devices last year in August 2017. But now, the free-to-play fighting game has come out of the soft launch and has officially been rolled out worldwide.
Following a series of rollouts through various countries, Tekken - aka Tekken Mobile - is now fully available on the Google Play and Apple App Store. It is worth noting that while the game is free to download, it comes with several in-app purchases. Meanwhile, the game features include the ability to choose from over 20 characters, upgrade to more than 20 special moves for each fighter, and various game modes like Story Mode, DOJO Challenge, and Live Events.
Here, users will be able to create a team of three players who will assist the character Kazuya Mishima against an enemy called Revenant. Users will also be able to challenge other players in the DOJO Challenge mode, and the company has plans to host live events that will feature daily, weekly, and monthly new content.
Tekken brings swipe-based fighting experience that is seen is games like Injustice 2, where the gameplay is simplified for smartphones. It involves a number of playable characters who typically compete in King of Iron Fist Tournament. It is a fighting game series that first came into being back in the early 90s for the PlayStation. The franchise has seen a number of sequels and spin-offs, having sold millions of units over the years across multiple platforms including Xbox and Nintendo consoles.
