Under the terms of the agreement Nintendo will be responsible for the sales, marketing and distribution of the game throughout European territories and Australia, with Namco Bandai remaining as the publisher. It’s a similar agreement to the one made between Nintendo and Capcom which has already seen the likes of Monster Hunter Tri and Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D hit the Big N’s consoles.
Tekken 3D Prime Edition for Nintendo 3DS will see the famous King of Iron Fist Tournament fought in 3D for the first time, features 40 characters and also a selection of new stages alongside others redesigned especially for Nintendo 3DS.
Fans will also be interested to hear that a full-length CG movie will be available on the game cartridge. Tekken Blood Vengeance is produced by Digital Frontier (Resident Evil: Degeneration, Death Note, Appleseed) and directed by Youichi Mouri (opening movies for Tekken 5 and Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion).
One Piece Unlimited Cruise Special meanwhile is an action-adventure game continuing the RPG series which last hit the Wii. Putting you in the shoes of Monkey D. Luffy and the Straw-Hat Pirates, One Piece allows you to explore four strange islands and features real-time battles and over 50 hours of gameplay.
More on both when we get it.
