Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U preview: all about the mushrooms

The Tekken series has always embraced its zanier side. It is a fighting game with a panda and a kangaroo in the roster, after all. The upcoming Wii U release of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 may be the craziest entry in the series ever, thanks to a Nintendo-inspired exclusive mode.

Mushroom Battle mode is exclusive to the Wii U version for obvious reasons. It features a 1v1 fight between two opponents in an arena filled with various power-ups from the Mario universe: mushrooms, super stars, mega mushrooms, and poison mushrooms. It's all about the 'shrooms, man.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 preview

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 preview

It's been 10 years since the original Tekken Tag Tournament first saw the light of day, but the game has retained a cult following amongst fighting game fans. Namco Bandai now had a follow-up ready, with Tekken Tag Tournament 2 bringing the tag mechanics of the first game to the current generation of consoles. They also have some new tricks to roll out, namely in the form of some new online features.

Tekken Tag Tournament was mostly known for throwing the Tekken storyline out the window and the sequel is no different. This allows for the game to use the full roster of Tekken fighters. Players can welcome back characters like Prototype Jack (Tekken 2), Michelle Chang (Tekken 3), and Alex (everyone's favorite dinosaur with boxing gloves from Tekken 2) to join series favorites Heihachi, Kazuya, and Jin. Overall, the roster will launch with over 50 fighters.
