New Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Details
Namco Bandai has revealed that the arcade fighting sequel will be shown in some capacity at next weeks AOU Amusement Expo in Japan. Its unclear if this means playable or video-only, but we can at the very least expect an update of some form. IGN will of course be in attendance to deliver a full report.
Famitsu actually got a few new bits of info about the game in its latest issue. The magazine details a "Stage Gimmick" system where youll be able to send your opponent flying though walls, moving the fight to another area of the battle field. This can apparently lead to tag-based combo opportunities, as when your opponent lands, your partner character will be waiting.
TTT2 will also have an item system, something weve come to expect given past Tekken series developments. Youll be able to dress your character up with items. Some of these can be used for attacks. Famitsu mentions a baseball bat and an item called "hammer head" which looks like a hat with a hammer head sticking out of it.
The games AOU showing will hopefully be accompanied by new screens and video footage, so Tekken fans will want to check back next week! AOUs press day is on the 18th, Tokyo time.
