Pretty girls fighting seems to be a great way to pander to testosterone-laden guys, especially if you throw them into bikinis. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is taking cues from Dead or Alive 5 by offering a "big bikini bundle" for pre-orders.

At San Diego Comic-Con, Namco Bandai teased that a "big bikini bundle with over 100 swimsuits" for the characters would be available to people pre-ordering the game from GameStop, Best Buy and Amazon. The game is coming out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 11.

      Pandering? Yes. Bad? No.

      I read this as throwing "testosterone-laden guys" into bikinis the first time I read it...and thought that would be hilariously awesome...but sadly no.

        There's still time! Inundate Namco with emails demanding bikinis for the guys! If a female character appears in a bikini in any stage, all characters should be in bikinis for that stage.

      at first i thought it was actual bikinis and didnt think it was a great marketing move - the live action trailer was also kinda bad

        Live-Action trailers are ALWAYS bad... I don't quite understand why anyone thinks it's a good idea these days...
