Tekken Hybrid is a collection of the film Tekken: Blood Vengeance, with a remastered version of Tekken Tag Tournament and a demo version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 called Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue released exclusively for the PlayStation 3 in November 2011. Tekken: Blood Vengeance is accessible if the disc is loaded onto any Blu-ray player. Tekken Tag Tournament HD is based on the PlayStation 2 version and features updated HD visuals, similar to the God of War Collection or The Sly Collection, and includes Trophy support.


Gameplay in Tekken Tag Tournament HD was virtually unchanged from the original game, however there was a bump in visual quality as the aspect ratio was changed to fit 16:9, and ran in full 1080p HD, running at 60 frames per second.


Both Tekken Tag Tournament and its sequel are non-canon entries of the series, however all characters have a real-time ending shown over the credits, for the first character chosen when selecting the two fighters. Unknown's ending, is a FMV.


All 34 characters from the original game are present in the HD version. However, all the characters are available from the start, a contrast to characters being locked in the arcades and PlayStation 2 versions of the game. Four characters from the sequel were available in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue.
