Tekken 3D's Multiplayer Mode is 2D Only
Posted by James Newton
Tekken 3D Prime Edition's bulging cart of 41 characters and a full-length 3D movie is nothing to be trifled with, and the latest Iwata Asks reveals plenty of interesting nuggets — and, indeed, noodles — about next week's scrapper. One such fact is that the stereoscopic display isn't available in wireless multiplayer.
A footnote to director Katsuhiro Harada's comment has this to say:
60 frames per second (fps): Animation using 60 image frames per second. The more frames there are, the smoother the animation. In Tekken 3D: Prime Edition, the game supports 60 frames per second during wireless play, but stereoscopic 3D display is not supported.
Multiplayer mode runs at a full 60fps but at the expense of stereoscopic 3D graphics. Are you happy with the trade-off, or wouldn't you mind a frame rate bump if it meant seeing your opponent's battered face in glorious 3D?
We'll publish our Tekken 3D Prime Edition review on Tuesday.
