User hacked Tekken Revolution to give himself max stats, resulting in 1 hit kills & seemingly unlimited health - Harada says he'll be banned

A user figured out how to hack Tekken Revolution's stat system, giving himself seemingly unlimited health and resulting in 1 hit kills when he attacked his opponent.

The player, who goes by the name of BUTBUTWHYY, showed up in an online match with a power rating of 99,999 and both his endurance and vigor set to 9,999.

Another player was able to hit him continuously in the 2nd round, draining about 7 life bars total, but still ended up losing the set due to time over, and having less health.

Bandai Namco's Katsuhiro Harada said that they would ban this player who hacked the system.

You can also see in the clip that one touch from this player who hacked the system resulted in a K.O. Hit the jump to view the video.

Harada says revealing Tekken frame data is possible, but he wouldn't do it; feels doing so will impact the game's lifespan

Many modern day fighting titles have attack frame data floating around the internet, and some even have it openly available in-game. One company that has generally avoided revealing frame data to the masses is Namco Bandai.

Recently, a Twitter user asked Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada why it is that Tekken frame data is not displayed for players to study. Harada posted an extensive reply that discusses their decision to hold this information back, and gives a few examples to further explain.

"It is of course possible to display the frame data within the game but I wouldn't do it," Harada says. "Including the entire frame data (the time and range of an attack's data) into the game, there are things to consider when you give the player access to this data."
