Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition is slated to arrive on retail shelves tomorrow (November 18), according to Cinema Blend. In an effort to get people excited about the forthcoming brawler, a new launch trailer has been released.
For those who aren’t fond of arcade fighters, Tekken Tag Tournament was the fourth installment of the popular franchise. Although it was originally released in arcades back in 1999, it wasn’t ported to consoles until 2000. Nearly a dozen years later, the sequel has finally been released.
Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 owners have been slugging it out in epic two-on-two battles since September. Now early adopters of Nintendo’s Wii U will be able to smack each other around with the best of them. What’s more, they’ll be able to do it dressed as Mario and Luigi.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition comes packaged with a few modes exclusive to this particular version of the popular fighter. Nintendo fans will be able to participate in something called Mushroom Battle, which finds players throwing down while power-up dance around the screen. If you can imagine Super Mario Bros. combined with tag fighting then you’re just about there.
Wii U owners will also be able to play “Tekken Ball,” which finds players knocking a circular object back and forth as they battle. If the ball hits the ground on your side of the screen, then your character will suffer damage.
Just a few days ago, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 owners received the last character update to the game’s roster of playable fighters. According to Shack News, the update also included characters that were previously available to those who pre-ordered the game.
North American fight fans will be able to pick up their copy of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition on November 18. European brawlers will have to wait until November 30 to get their hands on a copy of the game. The launch trailer has been embedded below.
