The Tekken series is a legendary fighting game saga that-s been going on for over two decades now. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is really special since it's a sequel from the game that introduced the saga into the PS2. We know that up until the PS3 and Xbox 360 generation, the saga has been exclusive to the Sony home consoles. Said exclusivity has been slowly changing, and that goes even further in this game. But we'll discuss that later on.
Launching about 12 years after the original Tekken Tag Tournament game on the PlayStation 2, does Tekken Tag Tournament 2 make the long wait worth it? We'll talk about that now.
About the game
What really makes Tekken Tag Tournament 2 stand out from the rest of the Tekken games on its generation is just what gives it its name. The Tag mechanic in battles allows the player to create teams of two characters in the battles. This is perfect for creating new combos and interesting strategies, spicing up the battles.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 also brings all the characters back, including many popular faces once more into the stage. With around 50 characters in the game, expandable through DLC, it will take you months if not years to get understand them all perfectly. The movements have changed a bit to differentiate some similar characters. Every character has a unique move set, and it becomes even more special when you join two completely different ones into one tag team.
There are plenty of game modes to explore and they're more developed than ever before. The strategy will play a key role here when balancing your team to be the perfect combination.
The customization in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 can't go unnoticed. There are hundreds of different accessories and clothing to add and customize for your characters. Show off your fashion skills in style when choosing different haircuts, clothing, accessories, and items for your favorite characters. Sky's the limit in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
Changing with style
This itineration of Tekken is one of the most innovative in the series. It adds up so much content you wouldn't believe it. But it's even more special since it's the first time a Tekken game releases on a Nintendo home console. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition is a definitive version of the game that includes all the DLC and even more extra content. Which is insane since the Nintendo Wii U is one of the least successful Nintendo consoles ever made.
Still, this game improved a lot from Tekken 6, adding more game modes, customization, characters, levels, and even expanding the arcade mode, and the story.
