Tekken 3 is the third installment in the Tekken fighting game series. It was the first game released on Namco’s System 12 hardware (an improvement to the original two Tekken games, which used System 11). It was the last installment of Tekken for the PlayStation. It was released for the PlayStation in 1998, and in 2005 for the PlayStation 2 as part of Tekken 5’s Arcade History mode. The PlayStation version became a critical and commercial success, and is still widely regarded as one of the greatest games ever released.
