Happy birthday, Tekken!

Galaga: Tekken Edition is out now on iOS and Android, and not just in Japan

We knew that Galaga: Tekken Edition would be coming to iOS and Android in Japan today. What we wasn't sure of was whether it would be available anywhere else.

Turns out that Bandai Namco has released it outside of Japan too. Yep, you should be able to download it for free right now, at least, you can in the US and Europe.

As we mentioned before, Galaga: Tekken Edition was made to celebrate the fighting game's 20th anniversary.

It replaces the classic arcade shooter Galaga with characters from Tekken. Rather than a spaceship, you can play as Heihachi Mishima, Lili, or Tekken 7 newbie Claudio Serafino.

And rather than shooting insects, you go up against King and his army of wrestlers. There are also triple threats to take on comprised of Bob, Ganryu and, Jack, as well as Xiaoyu, Panda, and Alisa, and more.

The characters you're able to play as each have slightly different shooting styles: Lili fires rapidly, Claudio has piercing shots, while Heihachi throws a headbutt.

As you beat stages, you'll unlock more playable characters that, presumably, also have their own unique attacks.

Last thing to note is that it's possible to perform tag team attacks as well as call upon Pac-Man, who eats all of the enemies on the screen.

You can download Galaga: Tekken Edition for free on the App Store and Google Play.
