Tekken Tag Tournament 2 looks nice on the Wii U


1:30 PM on 09.15.2012



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" mode to free the TV for other uses. That said, the GamePad displays the game at all times regardless, so if you want to watch something else on the TV, you'd just need to leave the Wii U running and change the input on the set. There may be a dedicated "off-TV" option by the time the game launched on Nov. 18th, so we'll see. 

There was also talk that the game would be getting additional touch screen options, but this demo didn't contain any of that. It also lacked the special new Nintendo costumes, but that's OK. We got a good look at them a few days ago. 

As for mushroom mode, it's totally stupid. If you want to play a more randomized version of Tekken where luck is just as responsible as skill in determining who wins, then you just might love it.

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...more

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!more

Review: Tekken Tag Tournament 2

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 i...more

Tekken 7 extended trailer is twice as overdramatic

I can't believe Liam Neeson has already made seven of these. There was a trailer for this recently, but this Comic-Con trailer is twice and long, therefore twice as good. You can say, "It's not about the length of the trailer, it's how you use it" all you like, but it's a half truth.  Also, please never say Heihachi again.more

Marie's persona in Persona 4 Ultimax is so pretty

Beating on people with your handbag is less cool than beating on people with a folding chair, but it's still pretty cool. Also, throwing presents at them. Very sweet. Marie will be paid DLC for Persona 4 Ultimax. And can we talk about that music? So fun. more

You got Tomodachi Life in my Smash Bros.
