As everyone knows… The previously announced Street Fighter X TEKKEN and TEKKEN X Street Fighter titles are part of an overall “Fighting Game Festival.” But, the first title in the “festival” is announced today (at TOUGEKI)… TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2. Tentatively scheduled for a Summer 2011 arcade release in Japan.
TEKKEN fans are in for a real treat as the order of releases for games will be:
1. TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2
2. Street Fighter X TEKKEN
3. TEKKEN X Street Fighter
Today’s teaser trailer is in-game footage, not CG. It might look similar to TEKKEN 6, but the graphics engine has been tweaked/improved to support up to 4 characters on screen at once. The character models were redone from TEKKEN 6 moving onward to TTT2.
TTT2 will follow the same control scheme as the original Tekken Tag Tournament: One stick for movement and 5 action buttons. As seen in the teaser, there will be tag combos involving both characters tagging in and out-in succession to complete multi-hit combos/juggles. Walled stages remain and breakable walls/floors are still in the game. New mechanics and stage features will also be implemented. As seen in the trailer, there are some possible unique attacks depending on the character teams that are chosen (Ex. Jin & Asuka).
Several characters are featured in the trailer, but the character lineup will not be announced for some time
Baek x Raven - Say goodbye to the floor, little bitch.
Lili x Christie - Have button-mashing, will flip the fuck out!
Lei x Yoshimitsu - "FUUUUUUUCK DID YOU SEE THAT!?!"
Is it counting the tag button as an action button? That's the only way I can get it to 5.
I can play em both!
Why quote yourself? o_O
Presumably he realised that could also be a pun and came back to replace it with tekken.
Also antihippy you should stick that link with the youtube trailer in the op. It's a lot easier to just load it in the page. If they want the HD they can go to the first link.
That was so lame I totally missed it. :P
It's amazing how fighting games have been the one consistently great genre this current gen.
As a fan, here's hoping. As a cynic, I doubt it.
Hopefully Namco will make it slightly less juggle dependant this time around. I know juggling is Tekkens thing but still
What was wrong with 6 exactly?
I'm not really a big Tekken person, but it seemed pretty Tekken-y to me.
Either way, I never played the original TTT so I'll probably try this.
Cannot wait. Looking forward to playing as Kunimitsu and Devil again. And that trailer looks like it's got some young Heihachi clone at the beggining and end judging by the hair.
But maining Hwaorang and Lee to the top, maybe peppering in some Kazuya or Xiaoyu along the way.
Other people don't like juggling for some reason. Though the game doesn't really revolve around them contrary to popular belief and most of them come from fuck ups in footsie and spacing games. They're just combos.
People don't like the bound system though I don't really know why. Just another way to combo for me.
Also, the graphics aren't too hot but people got to remember that it was made in 2007.
I personally hope he makes it back.
Also, I want jun just so I don't have to learn anyone too different from asuka because I'm lazy. :P
Jack-2, Prototype-Jack, Gun-Jack, Jack-5, Jack-6. ALL TOGETHER!
My favorite & most powerful teams in the original were a mish-mash of J-2, P-J & G-J.
Such as "Be In the Mirror" playing on the cathedral stage.
Also, I hope they keep on with customizing costumes and junk.
Also, the engines for the more recent Tekken games were not optimized for having 4 characters in one battle, as there were significant load times for just loading in the stages and 2 characters. I think it was just a matter of developing a better engine that can handle 4 characters (with a HUGE amount of custom outfits and clothing) and 1 arena for the current gen, and I'd imagine that takes some time.
Tekken Tag games were not canon.
As long as Zafina makes it in, I think Day 1 purchase.

I'd bet everything on everyone, PLUS a few extra. I wouldn't be suprised if goddamn Naruto made it in.
Except Gon, because he's terrible.
but really if he's in the game at all that would be awesome
I want my kung fu Velociraptor back
Largest character roster ever.
Actually, that doesn't have the information I just mentioned.
Fuck I can't find where I saw that now. I did see it somewhere!
New footage from MLG, GET IT WHILE IT"S STILL UP!
King + armour king team moves are fucking beastly.
T6 on left and TTT2 on right.
Also, I didn't notice that Jin's hair had been downgraded in T6.
