Think for a moment about fighting games and portable gaming systems. Compared to genres like first-person shooter or action/adventure, fighting games make a great fit for handheld play because they don't need a second analog stick. D-pad input and face buttons let you pull off most of the moves you need to compete and have fun.

It makes sense, then, that Namco Bandai's bringing its long-running martial arts series to the Nintendo 3DS. Hitting on February 14th, Tekken 3D Prime Edition rounds up Heihachi, Yoshimitsu and dozens more of the franchise's brawlers and pit them against each other in 3D. It'll support StreetPass to exchange player cards and will come with the same Tekken: Blood Vengeance CGI 3D movie that came with the PS3 Tekken Hybrid release. It's been a long time since a Tekken game's been on a Nintendo system, so consider this a Valentine's day present for all you King of the Iron Fist fans out there.

SOLD!

I love Tekken. Probably wasn't until Tekken 5 I was sold on the series. Last fighting game before that I enjoyed was DOA Hardcore on the PS2, and before that would have been Toshinden on the Saturn. Didn't get much into SF4, just got MK yesterday... But none of them are Tekken.

I love DOA on the 3DS, but this... This is gonna be pure win for me!
