E3: Tekken 6 has beat-'em-up campaign

With a story, guns, robots and co-op.

Namco Bandai has unveiled a beat-'em-up campaign mode for Tekken 6 at E3.

Think third-person action but with the characters of Tekken stomping around, battering enemies, unravelling a proper story and even using guns and giant robots as well as their assorted bag of martial arts attacks.

This Scenario Campaign can be tackled alone or online with a friend, and the further characters progress the stronger they will become.

Eurogamer TV has a video of the Scenario Campaign and it looks odd in motion; these characters with their clunky wooden legs and shuffles don't appear well-suited to open levels, exploration and crowd control.

But they are designed to go head-to-head, which they will - in destructible environments where players can be thrown through walls and floors.

Tekken 6 is out on PS3 and Xbox 360 this autumn.
