Almost two months have passed since the release of Tekken 7: Fated Retribution in Japanese and Korean arcades, but there remains to be no signs of the game being released for arcades here in South East Asia. To pass the time and also to allow players some form of advance hands-on experience for the game, a team of Filipino modders namely: Mikko Isorena, Reginal Cosme, and Egab Zepol took the Tekken 7: FR’s  predecessor on PlayStation Portable “Tekken 6”, and modified it to play somehow just like it.

Straight from Tekken Philippines PPSSPP, the team created two mods. The first is Tekken Hybrid which is based on the Free-to-Play game on PS3 “Tekken Revolution” which has no bound mechanic. The second mod is Tekken 7: FR Alpha Demo which is based on the mechanics of both Tekken 7.0 and Tekken 7: FR.  It features customized menus, character select screens, practice stages, life bars, and of course gameplay. The team put together this mod with the help of sh2288, sadamitsu (screw codes), and other coders from Tekken Zaibatsu.

Not only does the mod give the old characters screw moves, it also lets players use the new characters from Tekken 7: FR such as Gigas, Josie and Katarina.

As seen in the footage, it isn’t a hundred percent Tekken 7: FR. Some in game properties like float distance, hit stuns and the like are different but it’s still a decent replica of the original. Definitely a nice choice if you want to put some combo practice in before Tekken 7: FR hits the local arcades or consoles.

The team is still working on the game and trying to keep it as identical as possible to the current build in arcades. If you want to try the mod or learn more about it, you can find it on the Tekken Philippines PPSSPP website and on their Facebook page as well.
