Since then it has been heralded as a success by the company with more than four million free downloads. To mark this milestone Namco Bandai Games Europe confirmed the launch of physical Game Cards at EB Games stores across Australia.

The support of the Tekken fans for Tekken Card Tournament has been incredible, and with the launch of the physical cards we’re giving them even more exciting possibilities to enjoy the game. These cards bring so many extra features, not least of all is the ability to take the mighty Heihachi and its rare powers into battle.
