Tekken Tag Tournament is getting a sequel dubbed... Tekken Tag Tournament 2!

The game was just made public at the Tokyo Game Show by Tekken team leader Katsuhiro Harada. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is a totally new title. It is slated first for arcades, but is bound for consoles after that. The game's debut trailer shows fighters Jin Kazama, Kazuya, Leo and Asuka.

In the last ten years, the Tekken series has featured stages with walls that can be knocked down. The developers are aiming to make the stages for Tag 2 even more dynamic.

The previous Tag Tournament title came out in 1999. "It's been ten years," says Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada. "Tekken has evolved and changed." The sequel looks poised to respond and incorporate those changes as well as push the franchise forward.


Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will be out summer 2011 in Japan. Other regions will be announced at a later date.
