You can earn money in arcade mode. If you play higher ranked CPU opponents, you will be rewarded with a higher amount of G after defeating the opponent. The money earned per fight in arcade mode ranges from 800G to about 4000G. In arcade mode, you will also encounter random roulettes which will multiply your winnings. You can also collect money while playing ‘Devil Within’ and are rewarded an extra 100,000G upon completing the quest. Additionally, the fastest way to get some money in the bank at first is to unlock the endings for all characters by completing story mode with everybody. This will get you 100,000G per character for the first time through only.
Getting expensive items for free
You can get a number of the high priced items for free when you play the Devil Within mini-game a second time after you have already completed the quest. Various expensive items will be scattered around throughout the game.
Gaining ranks quickly
In order to gain ranks quickly you must play opponents of the same rank as you are or higher. When defeating CPU opponents of the same rank as your character, it usually only requires three to five wins to get a promotion. After your fight has ended in arcade mode, you can select one of three opponents with the D-pad. You cannot always select an opponent with the same rank, but do so when one is available; you will have your character rank maxed out quickly.
Tekken Roulette indicator
Although Tekken Roulette occurs randomly, you can still tell which matches will end with it. During the match, look at the top left corner of the screen. If you see a red light pulsing right to left where “Stage xx” is shown, the match will end with Tekken Roulette.
