For those looking for an early taste of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TT2), the upcoming special entertainment package, Tekken Hybrid, has got you covered.
Namco-Bandai will include a special prologue of the title in the Hybrid. The prologue will feature Alisa, Xiayou, Devil Kazuya and an unnamed fourth fighter in the playable sample. Each character will have two costumes: one special to Tekken Hybrid and another from TT2.
TT2 doesn’t even have a console release date yet, but this could be an indicator that a concrete time is on the horizon. Besides the prologue, Hybrid will include a HD remake of the PlayStation 2 version of the first Tekken Tag Tournament and Tekken Blood Vengance, a special CG feature film.
Try to not to get too tongue tied with that headline.
The AOU 2011 show took place over the weekend in Japan, with Namco Bandai deciding to reveal a new trailer for the upcoming King of Iron Fist Tournament.
The trailer reveals some gameplay bits—notably that players can tag a character out and chain a combo or potentially attack an opponent with both characters simultaneously.
TT2 will also feature character customization options, and player data as well as your customized character are saved on a Bana Passport card. The trailers also reveals a few more characters including the return of Jun Kazama and Jinpachi Mishima. There will also be stage gimmicks or stages where you can smash opponents through walls.
No word on a release date for consoles, but the game should be released this summer for Arcades.

The above video also seems to show that your able to combo up hits with your tag partner.

I played the previous Tekken Tag Tournament and had a blast with it, so to say this news isn’t exciting for me, would be a lie.
