In their interview with Harada, VideoGamer has learned that Tekken Tag 2 will be using an improved version of Soul Calibur 5′s netcode. Best news I’ve heard in awhile. In the past Harada had mentioned the internal rivalries between the Tekken and Soul Calibur development teams but its good to see that they’re okay with borrowing/improving from one another. I personally enjoy Soul Calibur’s netcode on 360 (not so much on PS3) so I’m looking forward to an improved version of it for Tekken. More details after the jump
“As you’re aware, Soul Calibur V came out recently. I think everyone was pretty surprised and happy with that. We’re basically going to be borrowing the system. Our technologists have really done a good job on doing more data compression techniques, they’ve helped out with that.
“I think people will be pleasantly surprised.”
