THE fifth edition of ‘Tekken World’ will take place this weekend in La Nave de Puente Tocinosto promote gaming.

Tekken is a fighting video game franchise created, developed, and published by Namco. Beginning with the original Tekken in December 1994, the series has received several sequels as well as updates and spin-off titles.

As with many fighting games, players choose a character from a line-up and engage in hand-to-hand combat with an opponent. Traditional fighting games are usually played with buttons which correspond to the strength of the attack, such as strong punch or weak kick. Tekken, however, dedicates a button to each of the four limbs of the fighter. The gameplay system includes blocks, throws, escapes, and ground fighting.

Tekken was one of the first fighting games at the time to use 3D animation and the series has also been adapted into three films and other media.

The second game and its sequel were considered breakthrough titles and among the greatest games of all time, the latter also being the second bestselling fighting game to date. The series itself is the bestselling fighting game franchise in history.

There will be with videos, presentations and ‘freeplay’ stalls.

The main prize is €1,500 euros.
