Tekken 3 PSX

TEkken 3 PSX
Cheats & Codes

Tekken 3 released for the PlayStation 1 (after its Arcade release earlier) back in March 1998 honestly, has to be considered one of the greatest fighting games of all time. It was developed and published by Namco who lets be honest was the top of gaming in the late ninties.

If you have been living under a rock and don’t know the game’s storyline it  follows the King of the Iron Fist Tournament 3, a worldwide martial arts competition. Involves several characters, including Jin Kazama, who seeks to avenge the death of his mother and defeat his evil grandfather, Heihachi Mishima. Other characters include the cyborg ninja Yoshimitsu, the capoeira fighter Eddy Gordo, and the wrestler King. We wil dive into character traits and moves a little later.

From a gameplay point of view, each character in Tekken 3 has their own unique moves and fighting style. By default, the console version of the game has only 10 playable characters, with the remaining ones being unlocked upon fulfilling certain conditions.

Tekken 3 Cheats & Secrets

While Tekken 3 is not the cheat filled game that other fighting games are such as Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 was, there is still plenty of neat little alternates that make it worth tinkering especially if you love seeing what developers have snuck into the game.

Alternate Winning Poses
Perfect example of this is differnt winning poses put into the game. Simply, hold down LEFT KICK or RIGHT KICK during the replay of your win. If you wanted to see the original poses, hold down LEFT PUNCH or RIGHT PUNCH during the replay of your win. Make sure you hold the button down during all of the replay.

There are only a handful of alternate poses.

Tekken and Tekken 2 Videos
Not so much a cheat but great for those Tekken heads, if you’re in Theatre mode and have save data from Tekken or Tekken 2 on your memory card you can view any unlocked FMVs from either game. Cool little bonus.

Play As Tiger
Fun one here to play as Tiger, highlight Eddy at the character select screen and press Triangle and the name will change to Tiger. Then press X to choose him. When you finish the game beat the roster you will unlock his  FMV which is a classic 70’s video of Tiger dancing at a disco.

We love our bugs and glitches for all retro games and Tekken 3 is no different. We’ve seen the game breaking and annoying glitches on PSX games like Motor Toon Grand Prix 2. But Tekken is a little different there are some glitches and bugs that quite annoying for people your playing against. Especially the Law bug which we listed below the infinite kick bug is great LMAO.
