E3: Tekken Wii U has stage editor, frat boy antics


10:00 PM on 06.12.2011



One of the huge bombshells of E3 2011 was the announcement that Tekken was coming to the 3DS and the Wii U. This is the first time that the series has made it to Nintendo consoles, and it looks like they're both off to a great start.

The tentatively titled Tekken Wii U looks to be based off of Tekken 6, but with a multitude of new features that take advantage of the Wii U's unique controller. For instance, you can draw on your opponents face if you beat them in a match, and whatever you draw there may stay on their character for up to a year. In the video above, someone draws a goatee and rosy cheeks on Kazuya. I'm betting that in real life, we'll be seeing a lot fewer goatees, and a lot more cartoon genitalia.

Also of note is the game's stage editor, which looks incredibly robust. Someone here made a badass Pac-Man stage, though it's not clear if it was built from preset objects, or assets created from scratch with the Wii U controller. Either way, you'll be able to upload your stages to the internet so anyone can use them.

It's amazing to me how much more quickly 3rd parties are taking to the Wii U. I just hope that hardcore Nintendo loyalists, who probably aren't used to having all these options, are up for giving these 3rd party offerings a chance.

[Thanks, Nintendaan!]
