Summary: Tekken isn't what I'd consider a "Nintendo friendly" franchise. No, I'm not referring to the actual content of the games, but the mere existence (lack thereof, rather) of the franchise on Nintendo consoles and portables. In 2001, there was Tekken Advance and earlier this year, Tekken 3D . In the 18 long years of Tekken 's existence, Nintendo has hosted a grand total of two games, both of which had less than savory reception.
Summary: Parents need to know that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is a fighting game with some mild blood. Players beat up on one another using melee moves (kicks, punches, and throws) as well as with weapons and supernatural attacks. It's clearly fantasy, but parent need to know this game is violent. Also, there is sexual imagery, partial nudity, and mature dialogue, along with alcohol references.
Summary: It’s easy to recommend Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition as it’s the only fighting game out right now on Nintendo's new system, but Tekken is also franchise that’s cemented itself as a quality participant in the genre; this instalment is also bursting with content. There’s so much to do and so many characters to try that boredom will never be an issue.
Excerpt: Tekken has long been a series at which Nintendo fans have glared enviously. Since its debut on the PlayStation in 1995 they have had to sit back and watch as a multitude of games have passed them by, with only a mediocre Game Boy Advance version tossed their way a decade ago. This all changed earlier this year when the first 'proper' game, Tekken 3D, arrived on the 3DS, but Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition is a far more important release.
Excerpt: Earlier this month, we were lucky enough to host a fun-packed community event centred around Tekken Tag Tournament 2 . We've told you how the evening went , so now we should really let you know about the game itself! One of Tekken's most endearing traits is its eclectic range of characters.
Pros: Well over 50 Tekken characters, Building tag combos is an art form, The online experience is stable
Cons: Needs more single player content, Uses an Online Pass system, Where's Gon from Tekken 3?
