Namco Bandai announced that they will be releasing an downloadable add-on for Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection allowing Tekken fans, for the first time in the franchise's history, to play online. The online feature will include ranked matches, custom battles, and online tournaments ...

Updates to the new Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection Online will include Opti Match, Quick Match, Custom Match and Friend Match, making it easy to find opponents to fight with anywhere, anytime. Players will also have the opportunity to study their opponents by viewing battles in the lobby while waiting for their turn to conquer and trash talk each other via voice chat. The online update also includes two new single player modes, including Practice mode, where players can hone their fighting skills before battling online, and Survival mode, where players must use their superior Tekken skills to defeat as many opponents as possible, one after the other, in a fight to the finish.

Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection Online will also allow players to show off their skills with the Online News Ticker that will post the weekly, monthly and overall rank leaders at any given point. Players will fight their way to the deadly Dark Lord to prove that they are worthy of battling it out in the online Tekken ranking.

“It is beyond words how excited we are to finally be bringing our famous fighting franchise, Tekken, online for the first time,” Makoto Iwai, Senior Vice President and COO of Namco Bandai Games America Inc. said. “Not only is Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection Online a great value, but it now features the largest evolution in the franchise to date.”

Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection was released earlier this year for download on the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3. The game features stunning 1080p graphics and classic Tekken gameplay. The online update, Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection Online, will be available later this year for the low price of $9.99. For fans who did not download the original game, it will still be available at the PlayStation Store for $19.99.
