New Tekken Trailer Tags In

Team spirit

Namco Bandai has released a new trailer for its upcoming Wii U fighter Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Featuring over 50 fighters, including punchy Panda, wooden man Mokujin and dozens of slightly less absurd characters, it boasts brawling a-plenty and a Snoop Dogg collaboration. At E3 we saw that Mario power-ups are in the Wii U version too.

Up to four players can take to the fighting floor at once, and there are several modes to bash your way through, including the standard arcade option, survival, time attack and ghost battles, in which you go up against CPU fighters that emulate players around the world. There're also online match-ups; opponents can be selected from a World Arena lobby, and there's a Tekken Channel to watch fight replays afterwards. If that's not enough, you can also dress your characters up in a number of bizarre costumes.

Tekken chief producer Katsuhiro Harada recently said that the team wants to keep the game simple when it comes to Wii U GamePad, as a second display may cause distraction in a fast-paced fighting game. The controller screen is likely to be used for move shortcuts or as the primary display away from the television.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is out later this year.

I thought long and hard about getting the 3d edition for my trusty handheld, but I'll probably hold out for this console version. Fighters always seem to be much more at home on a widescreen tv!

It looks nice, I hope the pre-order bonuses, and stage is pre-instaled in the Wii u

What's Snoop got to do with this? I imagine he's in the game too? What is it with Namco and all the surprise guests in their fighters lately?

Questions aside, I can't say I was a Tekken nut or pro, but the times I had with TTT in the past were some fun times. I'm looking forward to this very much.

i hope they put a bit more effort into this, the 3DS tekken was dissapointing at best.

Snoop is in this because he endorses Tekken and has done for ages; he's a celebrity fan, and you know what that does for business.
Anyway, been waiting for this for ages, can't wait to play it!
