The warriors of Tekken 6

Would you believe it’s time for another King of Iron Fist tournament? It’s that special time where humans (young and old) tussle with bears for a shot at glory… or to take down a large corporation run by the devil. We can’t tell anymore what the Tekken series is about, but we have a damn good time playing.

Set for release this fall on the 360 and PS3 is Tekken 6, the biggest Tekken yet. With a rumored cast of 42 (yowza!) and newer features like item moves and completely redone animations, Tekken 6 could very well outclass console classics like Soulcalibur IV and Street Fighter IV. We’ve got some exclusive screens for y’all below and in-depth looks at some of the returning fighters. Behold!

Anna Williams

The sexy, sultry and voluptuous (curvy) Anna has been locked in an eternal battle with her equally sexy sis, Nina for some damn reason. After getting her ass kicked in the last tournament (presumably Tekken 5), Anna seeks revenge yet again on her sister. Apparently this means joining up with the G Corporation to get closer to her brethren for one more battle. Along the way, we hope Ms. Williams will learn a little something about herself. And then she’ll find her sister and they’ll hug. And we’ll slowly clap along with the rest of the cast of Tekken 6. That would be a good ending.

Asuka Kazama

The Tekken series has always been known as a fashion trendsetter and part 6 is no different. Cute Kazama (we changed her name) is bringing back jean shorts, motorcycle gloves and rollerblade elbow protectors. Even though her thighs are left unprotected, her shin guards will protect portions of her legs (as any soccer player can attest). Oh yeah, Cute joined this year’s tournament to defeat close relative Jin Kazama, who’s apparently behind a global war. Details, details…

Wang Jinrei

Seems like everyone’s out to destroy Jin Kazama. This old guy tried once before and met with disastrous results, but any dummy could’ve told you why (hint: he’s really old). We bet Wang’s one of those guys that drinks tea slowly and says things like “You’re only as old as you feel” and “It’s not the years, it’s the mileage.” And then everyone politely laughs because he’s really just super old and has no way of destroying the Kazama bloodline. Keep reaching for the stars!


Panda is Ling Xiaoyu’s bodyguard. Panda is also a bear. The cuddliest of fighters, Panda returns to the Iron Fist tournament to protect Xiaoyu… and eat leaves. We bet every battle goes like this: someone enters the battle dome (where they fight) and in walks a panda bear. That person starts laughing, because c’mon, pandas are super cute. Panda just mauls them, but not because Panda was laughed at. It’s because Panda’s a bear.

    the only reason why soul caliber took characters from other games because of SC2, was multi-platform,spawn-xbox, link-gamecube,the reason why 2 tekken people were in playstion:1 couldn't find any other good fighting game for playstation, 2 spawn was already taken, 3 tekken was their other game. they did really well with Mishima giving him no weapons respectivly leaving him be...a fighter. (Sorry this stuff irks me)

    Sorry about the double post, but it stuck me that Elpork may be the most immature person i've encountered on this site.
  • Oxfordcomma4 - February 15, 2009 1:52 a.m.

    I love fighters like these. @sakboy97: Your right, soulcalibur takes fighters from too many other games. They even stole Heihachi. D-Bags.
  • CCSchott - February 13, 2009 9:35 p.m.

    Panda is awesome.
  • sakboy97 - February 13, 2009 5:25 a.m.

    @Corsair89 Wait you think*giggles*soul calibur *giggles some more* and street fighter *oh f**k it im dying over here*are better than tekken HA! no competition tekken has original cahacters and soul calibur has characters from other games(link,yoshimitsu,darth vader,etc.)and street fighter is a wannabe 3d fighter game and SF4 is going to blow.

    Tekken's awesome! But I dunno if Tekken 6 will be able to hold it's own with Street Fighter IV...
  • Gahmah - February 13, 2009 1:14 a.m.

    ... eh, that doesn't add up.

    Tekken outclassing Soulcalibur and Street Fighter? I doubt it. But still, it looks impressive. @DontPanic: I dont get it either. It makes about as much sense as people shooting fireballs with their bare hands... Wait...
  • DontPanic - February 12, 2009 11:18 p.m.

    I still cant understand the whole bear thing... Oh well, nice article.
  • P0ck3tC1am - February 23, 2009 2:12 p.m.

    Never realy played any street fighter so i can't say a thing about it, except it looks fun. Soul Calibur and Tekken are made by the same company so they are equal, and each of these games have been out for ever! I still remeber when I was 3 when tekken came out, then soul blade(the first soul calibur before Dreamcast) good times goooood times....
  • Wuddle - February 14, 2009 12:23 a.m.

    You would be an idiot to try and compare Tekken/Soul Caliber/Street Fighter. If anything, you should compare this Tekken to it's previous generations, which from the looks of it is going to be much superior overall. Always been a fan of this game, and I'm looking forward to it.

    Man, I used to love Tekken back in the day, but it's just *old* now. The mechanics just don't grab me, and the character designs are just boring compared to SC4 or SF4 (except for the silly ones, which are just silly).
  • SkullSplitter - February 13, 2009 9:44 a.m.

    You forgot so many character! As you said in this article there are 42 characters and you talked about 8. Tell me you're going to make a part 2 :/ Oh, and I can't wait for this game.
  • J-spit - February 13, 2009 8:50 a.m.

    I'm a fighter junkie. Tekken, SF4, and MK vs DCU are on my list. They can keep SC4.
  • adk323 - February 13, 2009 4:47 a.m.

    Looks pimp, dont see Christie.
  • ELpork - February 13, 2009 4:07 a.m.
