Free-To-Play Tekken Revolution Revealed

It's about time for a revolution, wouldn't you say?

Namco Bandai has officially unveiled Tekken Revolution , which will be a free-to-play fighter launching exclusively on the PlayStation 3 on June 11. Yep, Tuesday.

The game will let players spar against AI players in its Arcade Mode, and you can throw down against human opponents in online ranked and non-ranked matches. Also, for the very first time in franchise history, individual characters can earn new skills. The fighters will each have Strength, Endurance and Vigor attributes, and we'll also get new Special Arts and Critical Arts moves as well. We don't have all the microtransaction specifics but you have to assume they'll play a significant role. Love 'em or hate 'em, they're here to stay.

As for the roster, it will start with eight characters: Paul, King, Marshall Law, Steve, Lili, Asuka, Alisa and Lars. It's a safe bet that more will become available in due time.
