Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U trailer is heavy on strange


5:15 PM on 11.16.2012



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 ESRB rating promises adult themes and sexual situations, but instead pulls a fast one and opens with silly costumes and big noses, and continues with beach ball battles and huge 1UP mushrooms. I think the Bowser costume takes it over the top. The costumes are so prominent (and weird) that you stop caring about what character you originally picked. Now it's all about seeing a huge Mario fist up in Luigi's face.

My launch day lineup isn't fully decided yet. I may pick this up just for how crazy it'll be for group play.
