Tekken Tag Tournament 2 set for September release


Namco Bandai have announced that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will be released onto the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 from September 2012.

The second tag team instalment of the 3D fighter series has been immensely popular in arcades and at gaming events over the last year, and a console release has been highly anticipated.

Over 50 characters will be playable in TTT2, and players will be able to use them in either 2 vs 2, 2 vs 1 or 1 vs 1 battles when the game is released.

Players will also be able to team up and each control an individual character when taking part in tag team battles.

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 BANDAI GAMES Inc. “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 BANDAI Partners S.A.S. “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.”
