Tekken Tag Tournament
The player chooses a tag team of two characters and bowls with them. The first tag team member goes first. If that character doesn't get a strike, the second tag team member must try to knock the remaining pins down to get a spare.
Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection
The player chooses one character and bowls with them. After a strike, the player's character or characters will perform an animation, which is usually a win animation. However if the player hits the highest level on the meter gauge, the characters throw themselves along with the ball to the lane, and it results as a foul.
Free Bowl App
Tekken Bowl was released as a free app in 2011.
The only playable characters are Jin, Xiaoyu, and Panda. All three 9characters have unique skills: Jin is All-Around, Xiaoyu has a high skill of moving the ball but a weak power skill while Panda is the other way around. It has three modes: Basic, Pass & Play, and Puzzle. It supports Game Center Achievement and in-game medals to collect. There are also two Mokujin cameos; they are both seen separately banging on the gong. One of them always disappears during a win animation after a strike, but comes back afterwards.
Tekken 7 will have a version of Tekken Bowl coming along with other customizations and swimsuit DLCs on August 31, 2017.
This version of Tekken Bowl is the same as in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection but more realistic. The mechanics of the game is the same as the real life bowling where it can see the bowling frames.
When the player overcharges, the characters throw themselves along with the ball to the lane, ending in a foul. It also has camera angles to see it from both sides rather than in the center. Therefore when the player got a Spare, the characters will perform their exclusive win animations and their usual win animations. But if the player misses on the last ball, they also have an exclusive lose animation where they either shrugged in disappointment or dismayed from getting a gutter and a miss. Once the game is over or getting a Strike, the characters do their usual pre-fights or win animations. When the player makes more Strike or Turkey the bowling stage will change its color as well as the lighting after the characters perform the win animations.
The only character can lock-on targets using sensors are Alisa, Yoshimitsu and Gigas when they play this game.
This game mode can be played with all characters from the roster with the exception of both the DLC and guest characters (eg. Akuma and Geese) for the game. However in the actual release, the guest characters are revealed to play the game as seen when the player chose Akuma to play this game.
