Tekken Card Tournament fuses real cards with gaming across tablets, smartphones and browser

Appropriate Namco Bandai offspring.

Now it's Namco Bandai fusing video games and toys, with a new game called Tekken Card Tournament.

It's a card battler, it's free and it's coming to tablets, smartphones and browsers in "the next few weeks". The money part comes from physical card booster packs, which can be QR-scanned to bolster your virtual deck, or they can be played as a simple card game like in the olden days.

The card booster packs won't be out in shops until the spring.

Gluing the whole idea together is cross-platform play, so you can fight anyone playing the game on any platform.
