The arenas are set, the fighters are warmed up, the cyborgs have greased their joints and the animals have had their annual check ups. The King of the Iron Fist Tournament is ready to get underway! Today Namco Bandai announced that the 6th edition of the popular Tekken series has gone gold!
For those who have no idea what I mean by “gone gold”, it means that the development of the game is completely done and all that is left is putting the information onto discs, shipping the game to stores, and waiting for Tekken’s October 27th release date. Check out some of the cool new features that will be in Tekken 6.
