Portable madness with Tekken 6 & Soul Calibur B.D.

Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny

Unlike Tekken 6, which is essentially a port of the home console versions, Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny will be a PSP original. It will feature a roster of more than 20 characters, including mainstays Voldo, Mitsurugi, Ivy, and Cassandra along with a new character called Dampierre. That's him looking campy up top. No Yoda though. Same with Darth Vader.

One cool feature in particular is a lighting system that lets stages have different times of day. An enhanced character creation system will also be included along with local ad-hoc multiplayer. There's also a single-player campaign that's designed to teach players the intricacies of the game. Think of it as a long, detailed tutorial, if you will.

Soul Calibur: Broken Destiny will be officially unveiled at E3 09. You know, with all these new ad-hoc games coming out Sony really should start setting up the Ad-hoc Party service outside Japan. Just a thought. Maybe they'll have something for us at E3.

Tekken 6

PlayStation Portable users will be getting an iron fist straight up their you-know-whats when Tekken 6 hits the PSP, which will be right alongside the game's PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions. Namco Bandai is shooting for a Q4 launch for the home console versions but we don't have a clear-cut release date yet.

The PSP version will feature additional content, stages, and items as well as an ad-hoc multiplayer mode using "original" and "fan favorite" characters. It'll also have a "Ghost" infrastructure mode that will let players upload their characters' data and download that of others.

Here are a few screenshots.
