Guess What Fight Fans? Its Tekken 3's 19th Anniversary - #GTUSA 1

Besides being Castlevania: Symphony of the Night & Shinning Forces anniversaries, It is also one of my favorite fighting games 19th anniversary. So to pay tribute to one of the most vital games of my gaming history, I made this commemorative anv post, and I took on a 8 Player Team Battle on Hard Mode With 8 Random characters on the PS1 version, in the following video. Check it out to see how I did. Following the video are some facts on Tekken 3 from Wikipedia and a cool piece of art from Deviant Art.

Tekken 3 is the third installment in the popular Tekken fighting game series. It was released in arcades in March 1997, and for the PlayStation in 1998. The original arcade version of the game was released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2 as part of Tekken 5s Arcade History mode.

Tekken 3 was the first game released on Namco System 12 hardware (an improvement over the original two Tekken games, which used System 11). It was also the last installment of the series released for the first PlayStation. The game features largely new cast of characters, including the debut of several now-staple characters such as Jin Kazama, Ling Xiaoyu, Michelle Chang and Hwoarang, with a total of twenty-three characters. The home version included a new beat’em up mode called Tekken Force, as well as the bonus Tekken Ball mode.

Tekken 3 has remained widely considered one of the greatest games of its genre, and of all time. With more than 8.5 million copies sold worldwide, Tekken 3 is the fifth best-selling PlayStation game of all time. A non-canon sequel was released in 1999 and 2000 in arcades and on the PlayStation 2 respectively, titled Tekken Tag Tournament. It was followed by the canon sequel Tekken 4 in arcades and on the PlayStation 2 in 2001 and 2002, respectively.

Happy 19th B-day Tekken 3 !!!
