Tekken Tag Tournament 2 coming to Euro PSN Nov. 21, XBL and eShop later

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will be available digitally through the European PlayStation Network next Wednesday, November 21, thus fulfilling a need for PS3 owners on the not-America side of the planet who require both game-purchasing convenience and a bear with which to punch a dinosaur. Similarly, the game will also be available on Xbox Live Games on Demand sometime in late December.

A digital version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition will be making its way to the Wii U eShop at some point during the new console's "launch window," which Nintendo has said will last until March of next year. If you do plan on downloading TTT2WUE, though, make sure to buy an external storage device of some kind. As we learned last month, the game won't even fit in the basic model's built-in memory.

One of these features is Fight Lab, which allows new and experienced players to learn basic and advanced TEKKEN mechanics through a series of stages while being able to customize their own Combot character by purchasing moves from other characters to mix and match into a deadly combat machine. TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 also introduces Pair Play, which gives players the ability to play four-player TEKKEN matches with each player controlling a tag combatant. TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 also gives players the option of fighting in one-on-one matches and solo fighter vs. a tag-team battle. These new modes provide additional gameplay options for seasoned TEKKEN fans while providing an easier point of access to new players.
