"We are pleased to continue our relationship with Hori and are confident this limited edition bundle set offers gamers the most complete and definitive TEKKEN 5 game play experience," said Garry Cole, Executive Vice President at Namco Hometek Inc.
The TEKKEN 5 limited edition peripheral offers highly accurate controls replicating the arcade game play experience currently found on the coin-op version of TEKKEN 5.
Partnering again for release in the United States, Namco and Hori previously collaborated on the release of a limited edition Flightstick 2 bundle set for ACE COMBAT 5: The Unsung War in 2004.
"With so many peripherals in existence, we are committed at Hori to delivering the most unique and highest quality products available for gamers," said Ray Hiyoshi at Hori (U.S.A.), Inc. "Our newest peripheral was designed for TEKKEN 5 and those who love the best fighting game franchise of all time."
The TEKKEN 5 premium bundle set will be available at a limited quantity of 20,000 at specialty retailers beginning on the launch day of the software. As part of the pre-order program at Electronics Boutique, GameStop and Game Crazy, players will receive a collector¹s edition art book that features the art of TEKKEN spanning the 10-year history of the franchise. The book is available while supplies last and delivered upon purchase of the game.
Renowned for its variety of characters, amazing graphics and lightning-paced game play, TEKKEN 5 promises to deliver the ultimate, most visually stunning fighting game experience ever seen in a TEKKEN game. TEKKEN 5 brings back the popular cast of characters from the previous TEKKEN games, along with
three new characters, for a total of 20 default characters to start and more to unlock as players progress in the game. TEKKEN 5 allows players to use their fight money to customize their characters with various accessories such as hats, glasses and an assortment of different costumes. Each of the new characters is equipped with a variety of deadly techniques, and the returning characters have been updated with new moves and attack combinations.
Developed exclusively for the PlayStation2, both TEKKEN 5 and its limited edition premium bundle will be available in stores in Q1 2005.
