Tekken Tag 2 Console – September 2012 – Fight Lab and 50+ Characters

by Rip

We reported almost a month ago that the console version of Tekken Tag 2 may arrive as early as September and today Namco made it official. The console version will include 50+ characters (TTT2 Unlimited has 44) and a new Fight Lab to help new players learn the game while giving old players more options for practice against a bot. Basically, it sounds like its going to be an advanced practice mode which everyone has been asking for.

…while in the all new Fight Lab mode, players can customize the moves and appearance of new training character, Combot. Players that clear the innovative Fight Lab will have mastered the complexities of TEKKEN and own their own customized Combot

There is also mention of possible new stages (Brazil has been mentioned). So far everything sounds pretty good, but they still need to focus on the netcode because we all know how Tekken 6′s netcode was. With Soul Calibur 5′s netcode being pretty well accepted the Tekken team will hopefully use that code base or deliver something equally as impressive.
