Next Tekken game: Tekken 5 … again?

Tekken Zaibatsu, who just happen to be the greatest Tekken site on the web, brings us news courtesy of Famitsu that the PlayStation 3 is going to be seeing a Tekken before the often-hinted-at Tekken 6.

Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection is kind of Tekken 5.5. It’s a minor upgrade that showed up in arcades a short while after Tekken 5, and was later ported to the PSP where it reigns as the finest game on the system (and the only reason to own the dumb paperweight). Famitsu states that it’s going to be available for download on the PlayStation 3 in the near future with upgraded graphics and a new playable character not included in the PSP or arcade version.

T5:DR easily eclipses any of the titles out for the PS3 currently, and it would certainly be a valid reason to pick the system up, especially if they implemented proper online play. Namco, you really upset us all when you let the creator of Katamari Damacy get away with only making 3 titles, and if you screw this up, you’ll see me burning Pacman effigies in the streets.
