    The long-anticipated Nintendo debut of Namco's hard-hitting arcade franchise packs more wallop than a boxing glove filled with lead.

    At game's start, you have your choice of nine of Tekken 3's most popular fighters:

    Forest Law
    GunJack
    Hwoarang
    Jin Kazama
    King
    Ling Xiaoyu
    Nina Williams
    Paul Phoenix
    Yoshimitsu

    Because combatants are proficient in fighting styles ranging from tae kwan do to wrestling, Tekken Advance boasts an astounding variety of moves.

    Far from a run-of-the-mill button-masher, Tekken Advance rewards skilled players who can string together complex chains of devastating combos.

    Tekken Advance's one-player modes are Practice, Arcade, Time Attack, Survival and Team Battle. Two GBAs, a GBA Game Link cable and one or two Game Paks are required for multiplayer action.

    Tekken Advance is in stores now.
