tekken51: MAME ROM Information.


Tekken 5 (c) 2004 Namco.

Tekken 5 returns with a total of 31 characters (including the unplayable Boss, Jinpachi), including some absentees from "Tekken 4"'s character roster returning with lots of new moves. Tekken 5 has mesmerizing graphics and special moves. It has a card reading system in which players can save their record as well as other data. Players can earn cash by winning from opponents equal or higher in level. They can then equip their characters with lots of goodies like chains, helmets, watches, different color clothes and even hand-cuffs.


The dedicated cabinet for Tekken 5 is quite unique for its feature that allows players to plug in their Sony PlayStation 2 controllers into the cabinet which gives the feeling of playing Tekken 5 on the Sony PlayStation 2 home console.

Released in November 2004.

Some of Tekken 5's levels are thematically unique to the series. To name but two, there's a mountain area surrounded by large dragon statues, and a space-ship themed area, where one can see the planets outside in the vast space.

The game is so much detailed this time that when a character hits the ground, cracks appear in the ground / wall / glass. The effect appears to be merely cosmetic, as it does not impact the environment.

In the Sony PlayStation 2 version, previous cracks in the ground / wall / glass disappear the instant the character hits the ground again.

The juggling system has been revised; long juggles, akin to those in "Tekken 3", are now possible again.

The wall system (started from "Tekken 4") still exists in the game but doesn't have that much impact on one's gameplay this time.


Tekken 5.1 : Updated in 2005, this version of the game makes many changes to the game, such as : character move lists, the core mechanics to the game itself (adjusting of the wall system), and many cosmetic changes to the game (such as adjusting the life bar colors). The update was made primarily to help balance the game play.
