Tekken Tag Tournament 2 set for holiday 2012

Namco Bandai's fighting franchise confirmed to hit consoles late next year, platforms not yet specified.

PlayStation 3 gamers got their first taste of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 last month when Namco Bandai released a four-character demo of the game as part of Tekken Hybrid. Unfortunately, they will have to be patient for a second helping of the two-on-two fighter.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 should be out by this time next year.

At the Spike Video Game Awards tonight, Namco Bandai revealed a holiday 2012 console release window for Tekken Tag Tournament 2. A trailer for the game showed Lili and Asuka pairing off against Kazuya and Bryan in silhouette. No platforms were mentioned.

The sequel will arrive on consoles a dozen years after the original Tekken Tag Tournament helped launch the PlayStation 2. Like the original Tekken Tag Tournament, the sequel brings characters from across the series together to fight in two-on-two matches, with the ability to tag in and out mid-match and even mid-combo.

@kh2gamer, Well we'll just have to make sure we all get our copies before the world blows up, right?? :P I kid (partly), but seriously I'm just glad to know Jun Kazama gonna be back in it! Man, that was my fight game homegirl for Tekken (well her and later Xiaoyu). Damn, I've missed her!

@ferrarimanf355: Because Soul Calibur V is coming out before February 1st next year (January 31st, to be exact), while we'll have to wait for about another year from now for this title (which could come out for either November or very likely, next December). That's of time between SC V & TTT2.

its really annoying how long we have to wait for this especially since it has already been released in arcades in Japan. It is also already starting to be featured in tournaments and on streams. I just dont see why we have to wait a whole year and no i dont think localization for a fighting games demands a whole year.
