Tekken 3D Prime Edition: UK Release date on Nintendo 3DS hints

By Updated on

If you have a Nintendo 3DS and have been keeping an eye on developments for Tekken 3D Prime Edition, we have some good news for you. Namco Bandai are yet to announce an official release date for the upcoming fighter, but a UK date may have been leaked already.

Footage shown for the game so far has been very impressive, easily making it one of the most anticipated 3DS titles to date. It will come with 3D visuals of course, and also constant 60FPS gameplay, which is going to be a big factor as gamers decide whether or not to pick up the 3DS title rather than say a similar version for the upcoming PS Vita.

For those of you that don’t know, Tekken 3D Prime Edition will also come bundled with Tekken: Blood Vengeance, the 3D movie that Namco has been parading around at recent gaming events, such as the Eurogamer Expo back in September for example.

On to the release date news though, as a listing by the BBFC has revealed that the game could be releasing in the UK on February 17 – meaning that it could be releasing in the US on Tuesday February 14th – how’s that for some Tekken loving?

There is expected to be 40 characters in the game at launch, as reported from Eurogamer, and you can bet that most of the characters from Tekken 6 will be present here. We have included a trailer below showing a recent build of the game – it looks fantastic for a handheld, comparable with PS2 at least? Don’t forget that if you have a 3DS, you can watch this in 3D on your handheld for much better viewing.

If that is the case, let us know your thoughts on the game after watching in 3D. Is Tekken Prime 3D Edition on your wishlist of titles for the 3DS, or are you still too busy playing Ocarina of Time 3D to care about this one?
