Tekken 3 - On This Day

Tekken 3 - On This Day

Whenever we talk about the games that marked the PlayStation console, we must mention Tekken 3. This tobacco came out in Japan on this day exactly 24 years ago, a year after the version for the arcade machine Namco System 12. Tekken 3 quickly became the best fighting game on Sony's console, a game that every neighborhood playroom had to have at the time.

The third part, compared to its predecessors, brought a bunch of novelties to the Tekken series. In the first row, he introduced as many as 15 new fighters, including Eddy, Hwoaranga, and Jin Kazama. With his capoeira fighting style, Eddy was often the first choice of many players, so the saying "Pizza * chooses Eddy" could be heard.

In the third part, the fighters were able to move in 3D, ie to avoid attacks by moving in space. The jump was nerfing, but new ground attacks were added. The graphics were great at the time, the animations were top-notch, the music was invigorating, and it all made one great package.

But Tekken 3 had more than a classic fight. For the first time in the series, the Tekken Force mode was presented, in which players walked the streets and fought with several enemies at once. There was also a mini-game called Tekken Ball in which volleyball players had to hit a big ball to keep it from falling into their court.

Tekken 3 was the second best-rated game on PlayStation, just behind Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2. With total sales of 8.3 million copies, it became the best-selling fighting game on Sony’s platform or second-best tobacco after the Super Smash Bros. series.

The game has remained exclusive to the first PlayStation in the 24 years of its existence, although the arcade version appeared as part of Tekken 5 for the PS2. In 2018, Tekken 3 was also listed among the 20 games for the PlayStation Classic console.
