The USA location test for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is now over. Kane went ahead and released some of the combos he recorded from the arcade. That Paul/Jack combo is gross. Not sure if Namco will be selling the game later, but I’m glad we got the opportunity to have it and play it for awhile. Otherwise we’ll be waiting on its console release like everyone else.
Huge news on the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 USA Location Test! First of all, New York location test announcement previously made was in error. New York will NOT be receiving a location test. Also, for those of you looking to get ready for the test, go register your banapass and signup for Tekken-Net now! Secondly, the tests will start this week and end January 17th. Here’s the info:
Its official. Announced earlier today on the NEC stream, the USA will be getting Tekken Tag Tournament 2 arcade location tests around the country. Not sure what they’re testing as the game has been out awhile, but I’ll definitely be out there supporting as much as I can. Dates have not been announced, but word on the street is that its much sooner than later. No word yet on the length of these location tests, but indefinite would sound good to me! The five locations around the USA that will be receiving the location tests are as follows:
Fun Works – Honolulu, HI
Super Arcade – Walnut, CA
Round One Entertainment – City of Industry, CA
Arcade UFO – Austin, TX
Next Level Arcade – New York, NY
Update: Super Arcade has received their server testing equipment as well
Received word on twitter yesterday that an arcade in Hawaii has received PC’s for a 1 month test to test the network connection with Japan. Apparently the Namco representative said that the test would be to see if they could sell Tekken Tag Tournament 2 to the USA.
Harada tweeted awhile back that they were planning on a location test for USA in October, so this adds some credibility to the messenger. The fact that its near the end of October and none of our arcades in SoCal have definitively stated that they were getting a location test, it makes this server test even more probable. Maybe this server setup was the first step in having machines coming for a location test in Los Angeles, Texas, New York (these are the places Harada tweeted as possibilities)? Of course, don’t trust everything you hear on twitter right?
But we can always hope! What do you guys think?
