Tucked away inside last week’s Tekken 6 “gone gold” press release, Namco Bandai also detailed the game’s full suite of online features in handy, easy-to-digest list form. Looking over the list, Tekken 6 appears to have a wealth of online options for PSN and Xbox Live competitors to play with, including ranked and player matches supporting voice chat, the ability to upload/download ghost character data and battle replays, and a leaderboard system tracking offline and online versus rankings, earned Battle Points, and rankings in side modes like Scenario Campaign, Time Attack and Survival. Additionally, sometime after the game ships, online co-op will be patched in for the beat-’em-up-style Scenario Campaign as free post-launch DLC. That sure sounds like a robust online offering to me!
