Feel like playing Tekken 3 on an HD2? Well, now you can.

Smartphones are inching closer and closer to replacing computers in our daily routine. Some would argue this or claim to still prefer a bigger monitor and such. For that, I’d say ok, at the very least, smartphones are starting to encroach on netbook territory. There, happy?

Emulators are a geeks best friend. They allow us to play games/ROMs of our favorite games on devices that the console manufacturers/developers won’t allow us to or are too ill equipped to support the necessary changes. As far as smartphone emulators, the field is still in it’s infancy more or less due to smartphones only becoming of age within the last couple of years. For WinMo/HTC HD2 users, mobile gaming via ROMs just became a bit more interesting.

The FPSECE emulator works and works well on HTC’s current flagship HD2. Naturally, an emulator that is popular and has a loyal following that it’s built up over the last couple of years means actual games should be fairly robust. And so it is. As the video below shows, Tekken 3 — which is a graphically demanding game for the PS One and mobile devices — runs pretty darn smooth.

Word has it that a few recent updates to FPSECE even allow for Bluetooth controllers to pair up giving you full touchscreen and physical gaming. I don’t know about you, but touchscreen gaming still has a long way to go before it will get me to bury the controller.

If I had an HD2, I would be playing this right now. Instead, I’m telling you to go enjoy it while I sit here with my loved keyboard doing what it is that I do best…
