Reversible Box Arts for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Revealed
Namco Bandai has revealed today the official (and reversible!) box arts for the upcoming Tekken Tag Tournament 2. The North American box art will feature Heihachi and Jin, and will also feature Anna and Nina Williams on the reverse side.
Fans, particularly Japanese fans, have been very vocal about changes to voice actors in the upcoming Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and took to Twitter to announce their problems. Apparently, all of the hate the longtime producer of the Tekken series, Katsuhiro Harada, has gotten have given him a bit of a migraine, and he took to Twitter through Eurogamer to issue a response.
Here’s something you don’t hear often- Exclusive Free DLC For Tekken Tag Tournament 2!
NAMCO BANDAI has announced that depending on where you preorder TTT2 from, you could recieve certain DLC characters for free. If you preorder through Amazon.com or Best Buy, you will be able to download Michelle Chang and Angel. If you preorder through GameStop, you’ll have access to Chang and Angel, plus the characters Kunimitsu and Ancient Ogre.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will be available starting September 11th on both 360 and PS3 in North America and September 14th in Europe.
Ancient Ogre, Michelle, Angel, and Kunimitsu have all been announced as free DLC characters for Tekken Tag Tournament 2, but Namco Bandai still isn’t sure just how they’ll be distributed. The idea of a pre-order incentive drew their attention, but they also noted that if that was the case, they would not be exclusive forever. The incentive would be “early access” to those characters.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is still slated for September release on the PS3 and 360!
The online in Japan has been highly regarded but also highly criticized, and Namco Bandai promise a complete rework of the feature as well as a ton of additional content when the console versions launch in Holiday 2012.
Whether or not new characters would be added, series producer Katsuhiro Harada tweeted “No comment. Surprise ;P.”
EDIT: The online play mentioned in this post is referring to the arcade version currently out in Japan.
