New Tekken Tag 2 update released

Namco Bandai has released a new update for its flagship fighter Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

The update includes three new brawlers, namely Slim Bob, Miharu Hirano and Sebastian, plus four new stages in the shape of Chile, Poland, Saudi Arabia and Russia.

Tekken series boss Katsuhiro Harada previously commented on his dislike for offering new characters and related bonus content as paid DLC, and pleasingly he has kept his promise by offering the update completely free of charge.

This is in strike contrast to Capcom’s Street Fighter franchise, which has been supported by a wealth of paid DLC over the past couple of years.

Tekken Tag 2 features the most extensive fighter roster in the beat-‘em-up’s lengthy history, with over 50 characters up for grabs in the console version. In addition, the scrapper also includes new Tag-based techniques, such as the ability to attack an opponent simultaneously with your partner.
