Previously available only in arcade and PSP formats, Namco Bandai's Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection has been released overseas as a fully digitally distributed PS3 title over Sony's PlayStation Store.

First hinted at in a Weekly Famitsu report in early December without a release date or price point, the PS3 version of Dark Resurrection has quietly been added to both the Japan and Hong Kong local PlayStation Stores.

Running at full HD (in up to 720p or 1080p) at a promised 60 frames per second, the new version of the 7th iteration in the long-running Tekken series makes boss character Jinpachi Mishima playable for the first time.

Apart from the standard arcade battle mode, the downloadable version includes ghost battle, a mode in which players fight a never-ending series of characters to rise through ranks, a standard multiplayer versus mode, and a gallery mode in which players can unlock Tekken artwork and videos with in-game 'fight money.'

The Dark Resurrection download weighs in at 830MB, and is available for 2000 yen ($16.80) on Sony's Japan store, and $125HK ($16.07) on the Hong Kong store. The U.S. will likely see its own version of the game appearing stateside in due time, but no announcements have yet been made.

Dark Resurrection also marks the first true fully digitally distributed title for Sony's service, following the recent 'concept' release of Gran Turismo HD, a free 10-car, 1-course demo showcasing Polyphony Digital Inc's technology for its upcoming works in the Gran Turismo series.
