Namco Bandai’s Tekken Card Tournament always had something that interested me a little more than the actual mobile game itself. Sure the mobile game was fun but I really liked the idea of the physical cards which accompanied the game.
Now available in UK stores nationwide these cards allowed you to play the actual game in real life as well as digitally as each card comes with it’s own QR for you to scan and use in game. There are a total of 191 collectable cards sold in booster packs of five cards each. The physical cards bring bonus in-game features including valuable power ups, collectible art, new cards via the card fusion system, augmented reality characters, plus extra chances to get super rare powers for Heihachi.
“The support of the Tekken fans for Tekken Card Tournament has been incredible, and with the launch of the physical cards we’re giving them even more exciting possibilities to enjoy the game,” said Olivier Comte, Senior Vice President, NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe. “These cards bring so many extra features, not least of all is the ability to take the mighty Heihachi and its rare powers into battle.”
