Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Unlimited – Date for Arcade Update Revealed

by Rip

The official Tekken-Net site has revealed that the update for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Unlimited will go live on March 27th, 2012. Thats right, only 4 more days before Japan gets it. While this isn’t necessarily the date that all regions will get it, I would expect that all regions will have it relatively soon after. If you’ve been keeping up with recent posts and our Youtube channel, then you know that there is a good chance the USA will also have an arcade release for the game as well. Fingers crossed that it isn’t too far out!

Tekken Tag 2 Unlimited – Solo Mode Single Player Runs

by Rip

Here are a couple more videos of Tekken Tag 2 Unlimited I took from the Amusement Expo in Las Vegas last week. As I explained previously, there weren’t many competitive players around, so I ended up playing against the computer a bit. Ran through the game with Paul then Law in solo mode. Check out the matches below, Paul and a bunch of deathfists after the jump:

The official Tekken website has a bunch of new information on the new 3DS version of Tekken due out for the Nintendo 3DS next month. The game looks to be Tekken 6 with young Heihachi and 8 stages exclusive to the 3DS. It also features a card collecting/trading system, online play, and touch screen shortcuts for combos. The Prime Edition also contains the Tekken Blood Vengeance movie. If you haven’t played much Tekken 6, have a 3DS, and are looking forward to Tekken Tag 2 later this year, then this is a must buy. They also released a new video trailer:

Gamasutra Interview with Harada about Tekken’s Future

by Rip

Nice short interview with Harada where he shares his thoughts on the future of the Tekken series. With so many games coming out on so many platforms in the next year its a pretty interesting read. Of particular instance is a reference he makes to Tekken x Street Fighter being open to next-generation consoles if the opportunity arises. Obviously the game is still early in development, but if the situation presents itself then it seems they are still open to the idea. Check out the full article here and the blurb about TxSF here:

For example, [Capcom producer Yoshinori] Ono-san’s team is working on Street Fighter X Tekken. We have our Tekken X Street Fighter that we will be doing here. Currently I’m thinking of that for PlayStation 3 hardware, and this is just a “for instance” — I mean, it’s not like we have any kind of info that you don’t — but if Sony were to say, “Okay, we have the next PlayStation hardware available,” then obviously we would put that into consideration.
