Tekken 3D Prime Edition 

 

The Nintendo 3DS is starting to show itself as a powerhouse in the hand held realm. I was skeptical about this little hand held at first, which is why I waited close to a year to purchase the system. Gamers know Tekken. This is a fighting game where there are all kinds of interesting characters. If you are not versed on fighting games let me explain. You select one character, and you punch and kick another character. There are human and computer controlled characters that you can play against.

Tekken 3D Prime Edition has broadened my personal horizons in a couple of ways. First off there is an entire computer generated movie included on this cartridge. The 3D movie included is Tekken Blood Vengeance. A movie that fits the rating of PG-13. Which also fits the 'T' for Teen ESRB rating. Keep kids away from Tekken 3D Prime Edition. This is not for them. This is for the adults who can handle seeing that much violence.

Tekken 3D Prime Edition is crisp, clean and very clear looking. I am amazed at how realistic this Nintendo 3DS game looks. The animations of the characters are diverse and alive. The downside to the realistic graphics is how most of the females are dressed. Their breasts are accentuated, and the camera angles like to focus there. There are also some gross things like the Bear that attacks by passing gas. At least that is what that attack looked like to me.

Tekken 3D Prime Edition contains some language issues. Characters will also mock others for losing. Some of the characters can be graceful in losing, but I witnessed a lot more characters throwing tantrums after losing. I thought it would have been a good opportunity to teach good sportsmanship - maybe in a sequel.

There are over forty fighters in Tekken 3D Prime Edition. There are hundreds of Tekken cards that can be unlocked. Or you can obtain them through the Streetpass feature. The oddest thing to me about Tekken 3D Prime Edition is the lack of story mode. I could fight in difficult Survival, or against a human opponent, against a computer opponent, or practice. That is the main modes in Tekken 3D Prime Edition. This is where Namco Bandai limited this hand held title.

The whole concept of the movie in 3D has me very intrigued. Will that become a trend? Will we see more movies being added to cartridges and put into 3D? I hope so. I am excited that Namco Bandai may have started a really cool trend. I would purchase various movies to watch on my Nintendo 3DS. This may be something Nintendo should explore.

Tekken 3D Prime Edition teaches two main lessons. Get them before they get you, and keep getting them until you win. I am not the kind of person who wants to act that way in public. I understand that many will use Tekken 3D Prime Edition to exercise their competitive natures. Namco Bandai was kind enough to offer an online and local way of doing that.
