Review: Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition
by Chris Carter

Tekken isn't what I'd consider a "Nintendo friendly" franchise. No, I'm not referring to the actual content of the games, but the mere existence (lack thereof, rather) of the franchise on Nintendo consoles and portables.

In 2001, there was Tekken Advance and earlier this year, Tekken 3D. In the 18 long years of Tekken's existence, Nintendo has hosted a grand total of two games, both of which had less than savory reception.

Now, it looks like Namco is finally doing it right with Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition.

What is 'Tekken Card Tournament'?

Whatever it is, I'm in. I love Tekken, and I love card-based games. The combination of the two could be great. It's too bad that we have no idea what 'Tekken Card Tournament' really is, though. Siliconera found that Namco Bandai filed a trademark for the name in Europe. They're guessing it could be a mobile or social game. Fair guess. What's your guess?

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U trailer is heavy on strange

I love how silly Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition is. This serious fighter turns into a Nintendo-themed Tekken playground. Costumes, minigames, oversized noses, Mario bears -- it's all here.  This launch trailer's ...

Review: Street Fighter X Tekken (Vita)
by Brett Zeidler

Launching just seven months ago on consoles, it seems that Street Fighter X Tekken never really caught on in the fighting game community. Some would argue this was a result of the quality of the game itself, but a bit of controversy surrounding the on-disc DLC and confusion about which characters would appear where certainly didn't help matters.

Having said that, back in February, we told you that with Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on the Vita, portable fighting has never looked so good or played so well. It appears that Capcom has outdone themselves again in making the most beautiful, playable portable fighting experience out there.

Get your paint on in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for Wii U

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition has added some pretty weird modes and features. We've already talked about the goofy Nintendo-themed costumes the game adds, and new screenshots today show off the game's Paint ...

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for Wii U is so weird

I love all the extra crazy sh*t they're throwing into Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition, which will be available at launch for the Wii U on November 18. All the new costumes and modes are a nice (and weird) bonus on ...

Dress up a bear as Mario in Tekken Tag 2 Wii U

This Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U trailer is reminding me of all the horrific cosplay I've seen at conventions like PAX and San Diego Comic-Con. Not horrific in the sense that their outfit was bad, but rather they don't hav...

TGS: Kuma in a Princess Zelda dress makes Tekken better
by Allistair Pinsof

You might not think of Nintendo when you think Tekken, but there is a good reason for this: The series has never appeared on a Nintendo console before. While this may be a point of concern for fighting fans who plan to adopt the Wii U early, Namco plans to do this port right for both Nintendo fans and those looking for a fast, smooth fighting game experience.

Heihachi in Mario overalls, Bob so big that Alisa only comes up to his knee, and stars that make you temporarily invincible. These are things you’ll only find on the Wii U version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Namco is embracing Nintendo’s sense of whimsy which fits perfectly with Tekken’s offbeat humor, best displayed in the ridiculous costumes available on 360 and PS3. Once you see familiar series characters dressed as Link and Mario (sorry, no Kirby), all those other outfits don’t seem so silly.

Tekken producer on Wii U online: 'I don't understand it'

One unanswered question has been lingering in the air since Nintendo’s big coming out party for the Wii U last week: How will the online infrastructure be an improvement over past Nintendo consoles (if at all)? Develope...

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 looks nice on the Wii U

I got a quick look Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on the Wii U and it looked like... Tekken Tag Tournament 2. With that established, I went hunting for news! There was no confirmation that the game would support a dedicated "off-TV...

Dress up as Nintendo characters in Tekken Tag 2 on Wii U

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is heading to the Wii U and it's going to have a bunch of extras for the Nintendo fans. You'll be able to get mushroom that make you big or small during fights, plus you can dress up as Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Fox, Zero Suit Samus, Link, Zelda, and possibly more. Nothing weirder than seeing Heihachi in a Mario costume. It's the stuff of nightmares!

Review: Tekken Tag Tournament 2
by Chris Carter

I'm what you call and "on again off again" Tekken fan. I religiously played the series for hundreds of hours per iteration all the way up until Tekken 4, then I just kind of...stopped. For years to come, I would dabble in the Tekken universe, but nothing ever really caught my interest for more than a few months.

Naturally, considering the original Tekken Tag Tournament was my favorite pick of the franchise, I was extremely excited for the upcoming sequel. Join me on my adventure through Tekken Tag Tournament 2, as I try and decide whether or not to take up the Tekken flag once again.

Preview: World Tekken Federation is free and awesome
by Abel Girmay

Not unlike Battlefield Premium or Call of Duty Elite, World Tekken Federation (WTF) mode is a premium online community service that will act as a hub for a host of features including stat tracking, clans, and social networking integration.

At PAX Prime 2012, we got a look at all the goodies on offer, and they are shaping up nicely to please Tekken fans. Better yet, all of this stuff is free of charge.
