Dead or Alive
has always been lauded for its interactive stages
, and it would seem Tekken Tag Tournament 2
is taking a page out of its playbook. A feature in the latest issue of Famitsu (via Andriasang
) gives us word that the environmental interaction is being expanded in Tag 2.
Like the crumbling floors seen in Tekken 6
, players will be able to access entirely new areas of a stage by knocking opposing players through parts of the environment. A specific scenario is documented in the Famitsu piece, where one player knocks another through a wall, causing them to land in an entirely different part of the stage, where the attacker's partner is waiting to resume the assault.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
also brings back items, which has become a staple of the Tekken
series in its most recent iterations. They won't just be cosmetic this time around, however -- two items mentioned are a baseball bat and a goofy hat with a hammer head jutting out from the face of it, both of which can be used in combat.
