The Tekken and fighting-genre community has been eagerly awaiting the release of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for quite some time, and they certainly haven’t been silent over what they’d like to see included and what they don’t want omitted. Fans have been so outspoken in fact, that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Game Director Katsuhiro Harada took to the internet to express his annoyance with gamers shouting demands in his direction. Harada explained why using the same voice actors and audio samples from traditional Tekken games id downright impossible, and ensured fans that Namco Bandai is doing everything in their power to make a quality game consistent with the franchise.

Today, Namco Bandai released a new character intro video that gives you a glimpse of some of your favorite characters that will be returning in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. You’ll see velociraptor Alex of Tekken 2 pummeling opponents with his famous boxing gloves, Prototype Jack from the original Tekken rolling enemies into balls and tossing them, Forest Law of Tekken 3 doing his best Bruce Lee impersonation, and Tiger Jackson (also of Tekken 3) taking down opponents with more style and soul than you’d find in a Shaft movie.
