Aside from DOA Ultimate and Mortal Kombat Deception heating up home systems next month, gamers will also be able to take on the latest King of Iron Fist Tournament. Tekken 5 has finally been announced for general arcade release by Namco in October. Following the release will be various tournaments to promote the game, as Namco has always been aggressive in supporting the arcade crowd with their releases.
What does this mean for us here in the 'ol RP? There are really few, if any, arcades here in Metro Manila that still update their games (though there really haven't been any new games anyway), but a new Tekken is BIG. I'm sure there will be a presence here, hopefully sooner rather than later. As for a home version, a PS2 release for the game is expected in 2005.
