“There is no better collection of the TEKKEN™ experience than TEKKEN Hybrid, with a full-length 3D CG movie, bonus video content, plus the acclaimed classic, TEKKEN Tag Tournament HD, which of course includes the fan favorite TEKKEN Bowl,” said Tekken creator and project director Katsuhiro Harada. “Furthermore, TEKKEN Tag Tournament 2 Prologue includes character modeling and costume design that is not included in the arcade version of TEKKEN Tag Tournament 2. Bringing together a movie, bonus video content, a full HD remake, and a special prologue of the latest TEKKEN arcade title all in one disc has been challenging, but has resulted in a truly innovative and unique product in the PlayStation 3 system’s history.”
