TEKKEN 6: Bloodline Rebellion Revealed!

Namco Bandai has just announced new details and features for its Tekken 6 expansion called Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion in Arcades.

Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion will feature two new characters that include the rebel leader Lars Alexandersson, decked out in almost “dark superhero” fashion, and Alisa Bosconovitch, the cybernetically enhanced daughter of Tekken 3 character Dr. Bosconovitch. The two new fighters will bring the total fighter count to 40, giving Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion one of the largest rosters ever created for a fighting game.

The game will include four new fighting stages, an enhanced character creation mode that gives more flexibility to hair styles, new collectible items for the characters, new moves and combos. New moves will allow players to bounce each other off the floor for bigger juggle combos. Slight revisions to wall juggles and tech rolls also make it easier for players to avoid being trapped in inescapable juggle combos.

The current Tekken 6 is scheduled for release on the PlayStation 3 on December 2008 in Japan.

More about the 2 new characters:

The first character is Alisa Bosconovitch, a pink-haired female fighter who wears a dress that matches her hair color. If you're a follower of the Tekken franchise, the name should ring a bell. One of the key characters in Tekken's background story is Dr. Bosconovitch, a scientist who appeared as an unlockable player character in the PlayStation port of Tekken 3. Namco hasn't officially unveiled the relationship between Alisa and Dr. Bosconovitch yet, but from what we've played, she seems to be one of his ingenious inventions.

Alisa looks like a relatively peaceful female character when she's doing nothing, but once the battle begins, you'll easily figure out that she's actually an android. Aside from her normal set of punches and kicks, Alisa can fight by sticking chainsaws out of her hands, fly around on mechanical wings that pop out of her shoulders, and, as an especially odd move, hand over her head to her opponent and make it explode.

The second character is
Lars Alexandersson, a young spiky-haired guy who is armored with red and black gear and wears a cape. He also has a chest plate shaped like a lion's head. His alternate costume makes him look more casual, with a simple street-style black leather jacket. Lars played in a relatively orthodox manner compared to Alisa, albeit with good range and speed.

Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion is scheduled for release in Japan on December 2008. Tekken fanatics from the Philippines should get updated for the international release of the newest installation of the arcade game series.
