Wii U Tekken still in pre-production

Namco hasn't really begun development of a planned Wii U outing for Tekken.

Apparently speaking at an event in France, as reported by Gamekyo, series producer Katsuhiro Harada said the core Tekken development team hasn't started on the project.

Rather, the project is in the hands of a separate team devoted to checking out new technology, currently evaluating the new console. The game will be the first Tekken title to grace Nintendo's home console range.

"Once this assessment and the various research projects completed, they send us these results and we can look more specifically above. But we are not at this stage today," Harada said.

"The project is still in its infancy."

Harada asked Nintendo fans to focus on Tekken 3D: Prime Edition in the meantime; the portable incarnation is due in February.

No release date has been set for the Wii U, although it is expected in northern summer 2012.
