With the largest player roster in Tekken history, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will feature more than 50 characters with expanded fight arsenals and move sets to do battle in new stages set in different countries from around the world. In addition to the tag-based battle that Tekken pioneered, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will feature both one-on-one fighting and solo fighter vs. a tag-team battle, upending the current fighting game standards and making the game accessible for fans and newcomers alike.
In Pair Play mode, up to four players can each control a character in the ultimate team battle, while in the all new Fight Lab mode, players can customize the moves and appearance of new training character, Combot. Players that clear the innovative Fight Lab will have mastered the complexities of Tekken and own their own customized Combot.
The original Tekken Tag Tournament created the entire tag-based fighting genre when it released in arcades in 1999, and the highly-anticipated sequel will bring unique features to the fighting game community with innovative online functionality that will be revealed in greater detail during E3 in June.
European Tekken fans will also have access to the “We are Tekken” edition of Tekken Tag Tournament 2, a collector’s edition packed in an exclusive metal case including the following content: the original soundtrack of the game and an additional music CD with remixes, an artbook with more than 200 pages, a behind the scene video with Harada San and other special guests giving you their best Tokyo tips.
