Downloadable version of Namco Bandai's fighting game to include optimizations for 1080p, playable final boss.
Late last year, Namco Bandai Games released Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection as a downloadable PlayStation 3 game in Japan and Hong Kong. The download weighed in at 800MB, cost roughly $16 to download, and made Namco Bandai's long-running franchise the first 3D fighting game on the system, beating out the latest installment from long-time rival Sega's Virtua Fighter series.
It appears that Namco Bandai has a chance to beat Sega to the punch (and kick, and elbow strike) in North America as well. Virtua Fighter 5 for the PS3 is currently set for a February 20 release, but Namco Bandai today announced that it is prepping a domestic release of Dark Resurrection for "later this month."
