Namco’s announced that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will be released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this September.
The game is said to feature more than 50 characters with expanded fight arsenals and move sets. It’ll also include all new stages set in different countries from around the world, as well as one-on-one fighting and solo fighter vs. a tag-team battle.
One of the new modes, Pair Play, will allow up to four players to control a character in a team battle, while the all new Fight Lab mode will see players customising the moves and appearance of new training character.
“Tekken Tag Tournament is one of the most beloved entries in the Tekken series – not just among fans but also for myself and the entire development team, so crafting the sequel has been a labour of love for everyone here,” said Katsuhiro Harada, Tekken Project Director at Namco. “To truly make this game stand up to the high benchmark set by the original, we have injected some exciting features and modes that will revolutionize the online fighting game community and allow new players to enjoy and master the game – so there will be something for everyone.”
“There is so much packed into Tekken Tag Tournament 2 that we can’t wait to reveal to fans of both fighting games and fans of all games,” said Olivier Comte, Senior Vice President, Namco. “The latest entry into the iconic series will have the level of depth expected of the highest-selling fighting game franchise of all time, but also the accessibility for new fans and gaming noobs alike.”
