TEKKEN shattered fighting game genre barriers when it unveiled tag-based combat with the release of TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENTTM in 1999. TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 continues to break boundaries with the introduction of the new Fight Lab mode, where players can customise 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 customised Combot, which can be used in offline and non-ranked online play.
In addition to this, one-on-one fighting and solo fighter vs. tag-team battles have been added to enhance the range of gameplay options for seasoned TEKKEN fans while providing an easier point of access to new players. TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENTTM 2 also includes Pair Play, where up to four players can each control a character in the ultimate team battle.
TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENTTM 2 will be available for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 the week of September 10, 2012 and hits stores across North America on September 11, 2012, and in Europe on September 14, 2012.
