Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Does it pack a punch?

Just days after its release on Xbox 360 and PS3, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is already proving a huge hit with players and reviewers alike.

The beat ‘em up game has been dubbed the title that ‘reinvents gameplay’ by players, while some reviewers have gone further and argued that the game is the strongest console entry in the franchise.

Among the features that are garnering so much praise are the superb roster of characters, improved online play in comparison to Tekken 6 and great tag mechanics. Here’s what we know about the team player game.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Features

The second instalment in the Tekken Tag Tournament series offers players the chance to pit themselves against others in a variety of multiplayer match settings, including a 2-on-2 tag-team battle, 1-on-1 or 1-on-2.

Gamers also have the option of pairing up so that a maximum of four players can each control a character, to create the ultimate team battle.

The all new Fight Lab mode allows customisable appearance as well as giving players the opportunity to customise moves for the first time ever.

The addition of Environmental FX also means that clothing will change in real-time to reveal the effects of dirt and water.

Players can also select from a staggering 50 characters, boasting an explosive range of new tag-throws and tag-combos.

New stages mean that players can fight it out in a number of countries around the world. Offline battle modes include classic arcade mode and first-class practice mode.

More characters and stages coming soon

Namco has revealed that players will be able to take advantage of additional characters via free DLC from October 9.

This will add the following characters: Dr Bosconovitch, Unknown, Slim Bob, Miharu, Sebastian and Violet, as well as the following four stages: Russia, Chile, Saudi Arabia and Magic Show.

With Namco said to be preparing to release the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for the Wii U, gamers will have yet another instalment and style of gameplay to look forward to.
