Namco Bandai's Tekken Tag Tournament 2 has officially released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game has received a ton of positive press due to having an overloaded amount of content, character customization, online modes and pair-play that works right out of the box without any of that awful, awful DLC where 30% of the content is disc-locked.
Fighting fans have been waiting for a solid, mainstream fighting game this year and while Street Fighter X Tekken from Capcom could have been a big hit, the main problem was the game's disc-locked content.
Nevertheless, Namco producer Katsuhiro Harada wants to restore some integrity to the mainstream fighting arena with Tekken Tag Tournament 2. The game has a massive roster of over 50 characters complete with customization, alternate outfits and multiple colors that aren't locked away on the disc behind a pay-wall.
Katsuhiro Harada, the head honcho on Tekken Tag 2 stated that...
“We are very excited for our fans in the western market to play TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 and experience first-hand all of the improvements we made to the series, many of which were a result of their feedback to previous TEKKEN installments,” ... “The development team has gone to great lengths to ensure our fans have a completely new experience with TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 by adding innovative new features like pair play, a vastly improved online experience, and the largest fighter roster ever. We hope that our fans enjoy the game as much as we have and are looking forward to watching the best fighters from around the world compete in the ultimate battle.”
The game also sports a very special guest appearance by former famous rapper Snoop Dogg as his alter-ego Snoop Lion. The game also features the special bonus track made exclusive for Tekken Tag 2 called “Knocc E'm Down”.
Namco's latest fighter also introduces a new mode called Fight Lab that enables players to train, practice, learn new moves, combos and take on a sort of mission-mode where they can improve their in-game fighting abilities. It's a neat concept and a welcomed addition to an otherwise jam-packed game that nearly has more content than a handful of AAA titles combined.
According to most reviews (assuming we can still use them as an accurate gauge in which to tell if a game is good or not) Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is doing fairly well, scoring average to high marks from most sites. Then again, so did Street Fighter X Tekken...so take reviews with a grain of salt.
You can pick up the primetime fighter right now for the Xbox 360 or PS3 for $59.99. For more information feel free to visit the Official Website.
