[Happy Birthday!] Tekken


In a market, that of beat ’em ups, that first saw the dominance of Street fighter and then the success of Mortal Kombat, in the mid 90s rose another competitor, Tekken, which officially debuted 25 years ago in the arcades, on December 9th, 1994. It was one of the first fully-3D franchises together with Virtua Fighter and immediately impose itself as the reference point for beat ’em ups on the PlayStation.


In un mercato, quello dei picchiaduro a incontri, che aveva visto prima il predominio di Street Fighter e poi il successo di Mortal Kombat, si inserì a metà degli anni ’90 un nuovo competitor, Tekken, che debuttò ufficialmente 25 anni fa nel mercato arcade, il 9 Dicembre, 1994. Fu uno dei primi franchise completamente in 3D già dal primo capitolo assieme a Virtua Fighter e si impose da subito su PlayStation come picchiaduro di riferimento.
