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.
