Latest Atari release schedule spills the beans

The first taste of what life will be like living in a PAL territory now that Namco Bandai has taken over the European wing of Atari has come down the pipeline. Tekken 6, Namco’s flagship series, just appeared on the latest Atari release schedule, and with it a promise that the game will hit Aussie (and by association European) stores in 2009.

The release schedule fingers a Q4 2009 release window for the game on both the Xbox 360, PS3 and PSP formats.

While Atari’s release schedule has made a habit of late for being best described as ‘tentative’ – Damnation was pushed back a month every release schedule for a year, and we’ve just seen Batman Arkham Asylum plummet southwards – given the fact that the arcade version of the fighter hit last year we’re willing to believe that this game will be out in time for Christmas.
