Tekken Tag Tournament 2 – Preorder Incentives Videos

by Rip

The bottom line is that if you plan on getting Tekken Tag Tournament 2 then you REALLY need to pre-order it. To try and clear things up Namco Bandai has released two more videos for those of us in the USA. If you’re unsure of what you get from different retailers in your part of the world, check out the recently updated tekken.com/preorder. It looks like they’ve added EVEN more stuff to the Gamestop pre-order, to the point where its almost like getting a collector/limited edition.

Tekken Tag 2 – USA Pre-Order Roundup

by Rip

The official Tekken site has a list of pre-order options available for the USA. It looks like Gamestop is going to be a heavy favorite as they have all 4 of the DLC characters (Ancient Ogre, Kunimitsu, Michelle Chang, and Angel). Amazon and Best-Buy only have Angel and Michelle. Some interesting text from the Gamestop site though

“Pre-order now and get DLC characters Angel and Michelle Chang on day one & exclusive DLC characters Kunimitsu & Ancient Ogre”

Originally, Zavvi‘s site (retailer in Europe) said that the DLC characters would be available after 90 days, but their site has since been modified to remove this mention. With that in mind, its interesting that Gamestop/Amazon are going to have Angel and Michelle Chang on day one. It makes me wonder if Kunimitsu and Ancient Ogre will be availabe on day one though. No word on the USA collectors edition yet.

Also interesting, the Amazon listing confirms that Pair Play will be available in the game. We already knew it was in arcades, but its nice to have confirmation that it will return to consoles as well.
