Online co-op add-on for Tekken 6

Double punch

Cooperative fighting hits Tekken 6 in a free update schedule for release on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.

The patch introduces co-op to the Tekken franchise, allowing you to team up with a buddy online in Scenario Campaign mode. The mode offers a new story and stages expressly for co-op, as well as leaderboards for the new mode.

Oddly enough, the update only supports online co-op; local play on a single console won't be offered. It's hard to complain about online play (in fact, it's great), but we'd really like to see same-system co-op supported too.

Namco Bandai says to expect the free update Monday.
