AK from the Philippines just turned 13 years old and took 3rd place at the TTT2 Global Championship! Using one of my personal favorite teams, Law and Paul, he rocked the Tekken world and proved that he had the skill necessary to take out top Korean players. The tournament was one of the most exciting Tekken tournament’s to watch in the past few years and everyone should take a look at it when they have a chance. HUUUUGGGGE shoutout to Markman and Spooky for commentating the event and CafeID for streaming the event! Another huge shoutout to Namco Bandai for putting together and hosting the event for Tekken fans worldwide. Be sure to follow and subscribe to all of these guys and check out the archives:
This is an unlisted taunt for Forest Law in Tekken Tag 2. It is performed by 1,1,1,1,1~b on CH (aka LP,LP,LP,LP,LP followed immediately by back). It does not work for Marshall. On hit the move is -17, meaning it is launch punishable. I tried mashing to see if there was a way to cancel it or do anything else from it but there doesn’t seem to be any other options. Perhaps there is a just frame input though. Credit to BattleJitni for the find.
When it comes to combo videos I’ve always enjoyed the ones that have seen more time in the editing room. They may not have the best combos and you may not learn the most from them, but they’re fun to watch regardless. This vid comes from Nilopilo (who I’m pretty sure has made some combo videos in previous Tekken games as well) so if you like it be sure to search out his older stuff:
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 japanese Street Fighter x Tekken website has been updated. Under the system page there is now a section for Quick Combos. Basically you can assign a combo to be executed by LP + HK, however it costs 1 meter of the Cross Gauge to use. It mentions that there is a consequence to using them, however it isn’t clear if that’s the meter usage or if there is something additional. Also, they have revealed the Super and Cross Arts for Law, Paul, Vega, and Balrog. Law has no legend kick or flip kicks in his Super/Cross Art?! Not cool
As promised, Capcom has revealed a bunch of new characters for Street Fighter x Tekken! I LOVE these CGI trailers. And I also love how people keep getting their faces stepped on! As for the 2 surprises that were promised, it may be the very end of the gameplay trailers (looks like Pacman and Megaman for PS Vita). The game is only and things are looking up. Look forward to more reveals leading up to its release. Screenshots after the jump
