Tekken Tag Tournament 2

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Parties To Will Smith Song In New Trailer

In tribute to the game's signature tagging action, this new Tekken Tag Tournament 2 trailer is set to a 2005 Will Smith jam entitled "Switch."

The trailer also claims that Tekken is the best-selling fighting franchise of all time, which surprised me (I would have guessed Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat). Still, it's a nice-looking clip; watch for yourself below.

Namco Bandai recently announced that the game will hit stores in early September of this year and feature more than 50 characters.

  • "Best selling fighting franchise of all time" ....eehhhh, you can lose me on that 1...Tekken is a cool fighting game and was awesome throughout the years but i didn't have as much fun with this as i did with games like Mortal Kombat!! I'm sure this game will be nice but developers and trailer editors seriously need to re-evaluate stuff they'll include (text-wise) before laying them down in the final cut as they often make such bold claims and we all know that ain't the case (as seen in those COD trailers)!! The "Switch" track used is cool and i can see the idea of why it was used so i guess it sorta fits the idea of "Tag Tournament!"
  • Over 50 chars... NICE!

  • Welcome to The King of Iron Fist Tournament!!

  • I may very well get this game, if for no other reason than to buy a non Capcom fighting game.
  • Mod

    hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng

  • Its good to see TT is getting a sequal

  • Dear Tekken, Please come and show all these fair weather fair weather, post Street Fighter 4, easy mode fight fans what a real fighting game is like. Long live the King of the Iron Fist!
  • Great trailer! The gameplay looks top-notch. Tekken has always been my favorite fighting franchise next to Rival Schools (yes more then SF and MK as well). The Will Smith song oddly fits with the trailer quite well.

  • OMG I LOVE WILL SMITH HE IS MY HERO AND INSPIRATION (TOM HANKS FTW) I MUST BUY THIS GAME NOW AND LISTEN TO EVERY SONG CREATED BY SMITH

  • OMG I LOVE WILL SMITH HE IS MY HERO AND INSPIRATION (TOM HANKS FTW) I MUST BUY THIS GAME NOW AND LISTEN TO EVERY SONG CREATED BY SMITH

  • meh...

  • Lets just hope that they include some old school Tekken characters like Kunimitsu,Gun Jack, Jun, Gon, and Ogre (just to name a few) (maybe some special costumes for Lee and Eddy?? nudge nudge)

  • Geez this is 8 years too late IMO. Hope it plays like the original. I have a feeling ill still be wishing for tekken tag HD remake.

    Clearly Japanese devs are in touch with Western audiences... I mean Fresh Prince of Bel Air is HUGE right now! ..uhm..

  • I've been looking forward to this game for a long time. Lili and Asuka are going to be my team...

  • 1:17   Nina you look goooood !

  • Why a sequel took this long I'll never know.

  • Nice! cant wait for this!

  • Tekken is my most favorite fighting game but that must have been a typo on their part saying they're the best selling fighting franchise  of all time. It should have said "Best Selling 3D Fighting Franchise".

  • forgot all about this...between this, AC3 and RE6, going to be broke this fall..nobody better not ask for x-mas gifts...

  • Looks alright, I'll rent it.
