This guide is for the original 2007 game. For the 2008 update, see Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion.

Tekken 6 is a one-on-one fighting arcade game that was released by Namco on November 26, 2007; it was the first game to run upon the company's then-new System 357 hardware and is the eighth title in the Tekken series. The players must for an eighth time use an 8-way joystick and four buttons (two for left and right punches, and two for left and right kicks), to take control for two of thirty-nine fighters (thirty-four of whom are returning ones from the seven previous titles, but five of whom are new ones: Robert "Bob" Richards, Jack 6, Leo Kliesen, Miguel Caballero Rojo, and Zafina) - and there are also two new bosses (Azazel, and Nancy-MI847J, who are both, much like Jinpachi Mishima, from that previous title, unplayable). In 2008, this game received an update, named Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion; it introduced two more new characters (Alisa Bosconovitch and Lars Alexandersson), along with a gold version of the aforementioned Azazel (who also stayed unplayable in this version), and six new stages When the game was ported to the Sony PlayStation 3 for the US on October 27, 2009 (and later in Japan and the EU two and three days after that day), it added a new mode called Scenario Campaign (that aforementioned Nancy-MI847J had also become playable for its second stage) - and this was also the first time a PlayStation port of a Tekken title was first released for the United States (as opposed to the franchise's home country of Japan, like all the previous PS ports).

One month later, on November 24, 2009, the game was also ported to the Sony PlayStation Portable for the US (and later for the EU on December 11 of that same year, and Japan on January 14, 2010); this version removed the aforementioned Scenario Campaign mode, some "Customization" options, "Achievements" & "Trophies", all the characters' "special outfits" and the "Stage Select" feature. As a result of Scenario Campaign mode being removed, it also made Alisa and Lars playable for Arena Mode, and gave them their own ending sequences - and two of its old stages were made unplayable outside of Arcade, Story, Time Attack and Survival Modes (but several new ones which could only get activated by entering certain cheat codes were added). This was also the last Tekken title whose Japanese version featured Daisuke Gōri (1952-2010) as the voice for Heihachi Mishima, before he died at the age of 57; Unsho Ishizuka, who had also voiced Professor Oak for the original Japanese dub of the Pokémon television show, took over from him in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (which made the original Tekken Tag Tournament into the first game for a sub-series of the same name) in 2011.
