Tekken creator interested in PS Vita possibilities
Katsuhiro Harada, the father of Tekken, doesn’t have anything in the works for PS Vita, but he’s intrigued by the possibility of GPS-based features for the fighter.
“We have so much Tekken at the moment … Even though there’s a list of things I would like to do, and Vita is one of them, it’s hard to do that at this point. But I’m interested in the hardware,” the producer told Eurogamer.
“… There are some ideas that interest me, such as the GPS feature.
“There’s a thing in Tekken called ghosts where a certain CPU character will have a player-like name and will perform in a way a human opponent might. They have a ranking and everything.
“So these ghosts, if you could perhaps leave your own ghost on a certain coordinate based on your GPS location, and another player, if they come to that location, they can battle your ghost or collect it or something.
“That would make it interesting to go to different locations and meet different ghosts and collect them. That’s one thing that interests me.”
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 arrives in Japanese arcade this summer, while the Capcom-developed Street Fighter x Tekken is the next cab off the ranks.
