Tekken Tag Tournament 2 to feature Snoop Dogg song, appearance

Namco Bandai has announced that Snoop Dog is performing an original song for the game, and will appear in a special stage for pre-orders.


Tekken is getting an injection of rhythmic rhymes, with an original song and cameo by Snoop Dogg. Namco Bandai has announced that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will feature an original song from Snoop called "Knocc 'Em Down." It will be featured in the game and in the original soundtrack.

Pre-orders will also receive a special "Snoop Dogg Stage" featuring a cameo of the rapper watching the match. Presumably, his song would play during the stage too. He's not a playable character, sad to say, but his stage should be interesting. We'd expect it to be extremely... uh, let's call it "foggy."

"We are big fans of Snoop Dogg and are proud to welcome him to the Tekken franchise," said project director Katsuhiro Harada, in the announcement. "The content we created with Snoop Dogg and the song he made for the game allow Tekken fans to experience the legendary hip-hop star in a unique way and blend both Eastern and Western cultures like never before."
