World Tekken Federation Site Revealed

by Rip

Looks like the World Tekken Federation website will be available from… you guessed it! worldtekkenfederation.com – Pretty interesting in that it uses your banapass account if you have one. So I already had an account! So crazy. I wonder how integrated it actually is for arcade players. I wonder if it will work cross console.. That would be awesome!

They mentioned forum integration in the past, but it looks like there is also twitter integration as well as a worldwide player search feature. Pretty exciting stuff!

Gamespot – In Depth with World Tekken Federation and Online Play

Another great look at the World Tekken Federation feature of Tekken Tag Tournament 2. The more I see it, the more I think it would be a great option for OFFLINE match tracking as well. For commentators at a live event, this would be FANTASTIC for commentators/casters to have access to during a tournament/immediately after a match ends. With all of this statistic tracking its going to be VERY possible for them to do online tournaments. Can’t wait! They also show off an ‘online’ match with people playing a mile apart over MiFi (4g cell phone). Match video after the jump

It was announced today that the PREMIUM online service for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 – the World Tekken Federation, will be completely free. The service keeps track of all of your battle history, hits per character, number of wall uses, number of tags, number of dodges, throw rate, throw break rate, number of counterhits, number of chickens etc. It will also allow you to create teams with your friends and work together to earn ingame currency and get the team ranked worldwide. Overall, should be a great way to measure your progress and help you improve.
