TGS ’10: Tekken Tag Tournament Returns


The classic Tekken Tag Tournament is returning for a second round, and a fan-favorite pair of fighters from Street Fighter III are coming to Super Street fighter IV.

Assistant Street Fighter IV producer Tomoaki Ayano had dropped some heavy hints on who would fill those two mystery slots in the Super Street Fighter IV arcade machines, now we have confirmation: Yun and Yang are being added to the roster. The addition of the Hong Kong twins was confirmed via a new trailer shown during the tougeki tournament.

Meanwhile, Namco’s Katsuhiro Harada announced a new Tekken title: Tekken Tag Tournament 2. The trailer doesn’t show any in-game footage, but reveals a few of the fighters: Kazuya, Leo, Kazama and Asuka. The game is slated for a Summer 2011 release in the Japanese arcades with consoles to follow later.

TGS 2010 reporting is done jointly by Fintan Monaghan and Lisa Gay.
