The Tekken fighting game franchise has been losing ground to the more popular vs. Capcom and Soul Calibur series. The popular Street Fighter IV hasn’t helped either. Still, it’s a fairly fun series with some great characters. What other series out there lets you battle as a giant bear? None that we can think of.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 brings back the the tag-team style of play that Namco tried out in the original. They’ve also added some of the new combo moves from Tekken 6 like the “Bound” combos which allows for ground-stuns that let players string together longer combo moves.
One interesting note that we’ve seen is that all of the characters are supposed to speak in their native languages. You can take that as you will.
For the moment Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is due out during Holiday season 2012 and has only been confirmed for Playstation 3 and an arcade version.
