Tekken Tag Tournament 2
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Trailer Features a Youthful Heihachi
Written By
View author's profile

Namco Bandai has released a new trailer for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 showing Heihachi Mishima after a bath in the fountain of youth it seems, looking like a big beardy version of Kazuya, who he also works alongside in the video. Confusingly, Heihachi is fighting opponents from previous Tekken titles in which he's been a gruff, balding old man, so bear in mind that it doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

But then, when has Tekken ever made any sense? We'll be interested to see how young Heihachi slots into the convoluted Mishima family saga when the game hits the Japanese arcades in 2011. Producer, Katsuhiro Harada has also suggested on his Twitter page that the console version will be landing between the releases of Street Fighter X Tekken and Tekken X Street Fighter.

Check out the trailer to see the game and young Heihachi in action, as well as the reveal of a mysterious female lucha libre fighter too. Stay tuned for hopefully more on a 360 version in the near future.

Hm, this looks like it may be fun. Tekken Tag was a game I didn't get into that well but the trailer alone really sparked my interest.

Cannot wait for this. Played Tekken for years, did well in the Euro tournaments back in the day too. I am willing to bet that female wrestler is King the 2nd's daughter or one of the kids from the orphanage he runs. Now please Namco, put Jun Kazama back in and I can die happy.

Tekken 6 was a great game but once again a game that was ruined by the community. Seriously why do people spam.

Fuck Yes. Tekken Tag is the best in the series and they have waited way to long for part 2. Although I will be buying this on Ps3

Tekken Tag was my favorite fighting game on the PS2. I am a tad nervous about the difficulty curve in this one though, as the boss in T5 was a pain in the ass across any difficulty.

Favorite Character Combos, Anybody?
I would post mine, but I can't remember anyone's name for the life of me.

The only thing which disappointed me about Namco games is that they never make DLC for the fighting games they release... I'll still be picking this up day one. Tekken is by far my favourite fighter. Hopefully there will be customization like in Tekken 6. Cannot wait.

Always thought Tekken Tag was non-canon, so having a young Heihachi would make a bit sense. I want to see Tekken Tag 2 as well on the 360, as long as it didn't have a defeat the giant robot achievement in it. I believe that was the only achievement I didn't get in Tekken 6.

I've been clamoring for this since 4 came out. 4, 5 and 6 were unnecessary I think. Or at least they should have put tag in them as an option. LOOOVE the tag part!! Get in there Bryan and Paul!

Tekken Tag & Tekken 3 were by far the best Tekkens ever (When old Yoshimitsu had his original, and best, costume!), Tekken 6 was great, mostly because it was on 360 :P. But that being said, Namco, please remove that god-awful scenario campaign mode! It was fun, admittedly, but when you tried to add a story, you also added piss-poor voice acting where characters speak to one another in variations of Chinese, Japanese & English. WTFs up with that? Anyway, if Tekken Tag 2 releases on 360, I will jizz in my pants

Love the Tekken series. Loved Tekken Bowl in the first Tekken Tag too. I need to get Tekken 5 to complete my collection. I'll probably get this, but later when the price drops.

I love all the haters on this game....grow up. If you don't like it then don't post and shut the fuck up and go back to your Modern Borefares and your Gaylos. Anyway, I cannot wait for this game to come out, just wondering if any of this will carry over from Tekken 6.

6 was garbageeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. i played a test build at Evo 08 and it was fucking great.

the console release was atrocious, as far as "When has tekken ever made any sense?" Lol good ol' 360a.

anyways, tekken tag is a dream match kinda game, it's not about the story

Tekken Tag isn't about the story. Although, I'll be interested in how young Heihachi's moveset will differ from old Heihachi, if he's in it at all, which he should be.
I enjoyed Tekken Tag back in the day. Probably the best it's ever been so I'm looking forward to this one.

Can't wait for this game, loved the first Tag Tournament, hopefully they dont make the scernario mode an essential in this game, I prefer classic Tekken.

I'll probably end up using the female wrestler a lot, she seems to have a few of Armor King's moves.

P.S Tekken 6 WAS a good game but it was ruined by the pathetic side scrolling shit that made up around 75% of the achievements, Nice one! i'm off to get an upwards scrolling shooter included in the next soul calibur lol

ugh enough with heihachi. youd figure theyd retire him since his japanese voice actor died. but instead lets make a young(more than likely clone) so we can get a new VA and keep him in the game.
