It's really a cruel joke to put the words "Tekken" and "Tournament" in the title of a game, and then not deliver what everyone hopes. Well, Tekken Card Tournament has just arrived on Android courtesy of NAMCO BANDAI. Get ready to square off against opponents and do battle with your carefully-assembled deck of cards. Hey, that's... almost as good as fighting. Right?

This title is meant to tie in the the launch of a physical Tekken card game this summer. You'll be able to buy over 190 cards in real life, then take advantage of augmented reality and QR codes to bring the physical cards into the game instantly. Tekken Card Tournament is mostly played online with skill-matched players around the world on various platforms.

Despite being a card game, this title boasts intense visuals and 3D environments. Tekken Card Tournament is free to play, but that means your wallet is far from safe. In-app purchases will probably be prominent.

    Why do card videogames of non-card videogames exist? Why is that a thing?

    • cy_n_ic

      Because its supposed to tie in with the actual card game. Did you even read the article?

      • TheFirstUniverseKing

        Why? The card game is already based upon an established franchise, why do they need a card videogame too?

    *Goes to Android Police*

    Chrome bugs out while loading, so I only see a mostly white page showing this:

    "You can now play Tekken on Android..."


    *clicks the partial article title*

    Page loads up, and I see:

    "as a Card Game"


    Dammit, me and my DualShock were ready.

    It crashed my Nexus 4 twice but overall I enjoyed the game. It's too bad there isn't more characters.

  • NoBullet

    Oh great not compatible with nexus 7 just because it doesn't have a front camera. Thanks Googbama

    • ScottColbert

      The N7 does have a front camera. Good going NoBrains.

      • NoBullet

        Obviously I meant back camera since the N7 doesnt have one. If you couldn't figure that out yourself you shouldn't be calling anyone else "nobrains". idiot.

    Google play seems to be down. Both the Web and app based store fail to load properly for this game. Oh well.

    You can always run Tekken 3 by using a PS1 emulator for Android. I'm enjoying it on my tablet. :D

    This kung fu is weak.

  • facepwn

    this is NOT tekken in any way other than the looks

  • DeadSOL

    I don't understand why some characters are available and that they actually fight! Why couldn't Namco just have given that to us? Why tease us with actual graphics and character fights when all you have to do is play a dumb card game?

  • ChainsawCharlie

    Sounds kind of interesting must admit.

  • rafaelo

    I don't want to play Tekken as a card game. I like Tekken as a normal combat game and I think there are better card games (Duel of Fate, Amber Route or Order and Chaos)
