E3 2012: Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Stands Alone on Wii U
Posted by James Newton
Waiting for a new challenger
When 3DS was announced, it seemed like publishers rushed to announce their fighting games for the system, but Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is something of a lone wolf on Wii U.
While Warner Bros.' Injustice: Gods Among Us takes a serious look at DC Comics characters, TTT2 went a bit tongue-in-cheek with its trailer, showing Heihachi Mishima eat a Mega Mushroom and lay the smack down (people still say that, right?) on Jin Kazama. Last year's video showed the Wii U GamePad used to draw on characters with a 'mark of shame'; here's hoping that survives in TTT2.
Namco Bandai tells us it'll have exclusive Wii U content, but we don't know what it is yet.
