Some new details about Namco Bandai’s Tekken 3D: Prime Edition have surfaced. Most notably, is that when in multiplayer mode, the matches will run at 60 frames-per-second, however, the trade-off is that multiplayer matches will be in 2D only (an example of the difference 3D can make to the frame rate can be seen in Tecmo Koei’s Dead or Alive: Dimensions). Namco Bandai have also detailed some of the game modes:
- Special Survival: With only one life bar, players will have to see how long they can last. Health will be recovered at the end of a stage depending on how quickly your opponent is defeated. If you land a perfect, you’ll start the next match in “Rage” state. At the start, you’ll only have a 5-stage mode, but once completed, you’ll unlock a 10 and then a 20.In the 10th and 20th battles, you can only damage your opponent with aerial combos. Clearing the mode unlocks “Tekken Cards” and CP.
- Versus Battle: Battle other players via local or wireless.
- Quick Battle: Face off against 10 CPU opponents. More CP is awarded according to the difficulty.
- Practice: Exactly what it says on the tin.
- Tekken Card: View your Tekken cards and exchange them with friends via StreetPass. The cards have images and illustrations of characters from past Tekken games (up until Tag Tournament 2) and scenes from the Blood Vengeance movie. You can set 3 cards for StreetPass, which when you pass with another player, can be unlocked by them using CP. There are over 700 cards to collect.
- Profile: Edit your profile and view records. Here you can access the character viewer and change character colour.
- Options: Set things like controls, difficulty, time limit etc.
