Namco has officially confirmed details of its arcade update to Tekken 5, subtitled: Dark Resurrection.

After previous suggestions that the game would be a slightly tweaked version of the original, it turns out that Dark Resurrection will actually boast two new (currently unnamed) characters and updated stages. Distribution of the arcade unit will start this winter in Japan, with a public appearance slated for next week's JAMMA 2005 arcade show, near Tokyo. Namco also plans to show off a number of other titles at the event, including new light-gun game Cobra The Arcade. [The first in a series of Snakes-As-Verbs games, presumably also including Viper The Washing, Python The Promenade and Oh I Do Like To Boa Besides The Seaside. - Ed]

Both Namco and Sony were unavailable for comment about the possibility of a PlayStation 2, PS3 or PSP version of Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection, but we - hey, look over there, a licence to print money! How generous.
