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.

Tekken 3 is the second best-selling fighting game of all time, sold 8.3 million copies on Playstation according to Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada

Tekken is one of the biggest fighting game franchises in the world, and if we're talking purely about sales, it's reportedly number one.

Adding another notch to the list of sales accomplishments, Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada noted that Tekken 3 sold 8.3 million copies during its initial release on the original Playstation console. This makes it the second-best selling fighting game of all time, second only to Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

We checked with Level|Up to find out what the early registration numbers are for the SoCal Regionals 2014, by game. With 20 titles in the lineup, we thought it'd be interesting to see which games have attracted the most players so far.

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."
