Namco Bandai has released all preorder incentives handed out for the release of Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Depending on what platform the game is bought and from what retailer, gamers will be eligible for some extras.
Preorders will yield immediate access of 2 characters, from a possible 4: Michelle Chang, Angel, Kunimitsu or ancient Ogre. Owners will also get the special Snoop Dogg stage, with the famous artist featured within. The man even composed a special song for this totally gratuitous addition. However, it’s not nearly as preposterous as the other content, such as the Big Bikini Bundle. Taking pages from competitor Dead Or Alive on its greatest “assets,” this bundle yields in excess of 150 flimsy outfits for all the characters, even Panda and Kuma, but probably mostly girls. The pinnacle of this is the added Lili de Rochefort skirt, which is so special it deserves extra mention for being made with Havok Physics technology. I haven’t been part of the Tekken franchise since the 3DS edition, but this seems to be rapidly descending in superfluous debauchery. Though, to each their own, I suppose. Yet, Lollipop Chainsaw receives massive outcries prior to the release, which capsized gender roles, yet this title doesn’t seem to hit any bells. Related to that, the Tekken fighting community has hit some snags in the past with bold comments of sexism. There might be a pattern to this.
Depending on whether you preordered on Playstation 3 or Xbox 360, you’ll also get a Dynamic theme or 2 vatar outfits of either Raven and Yoshimitsu or Lili and Kazuya respectively.
In other news, Namco Bandai announced that its online service titled World Tekken Federation, simply WTF, will launch for free along the release of the game. Again, we’re not sure how that’s special, since it’s rather expected for these services to be free, but it’s probably another jab at competitor Capcom, which creates uproars with its DLC and update tactics. As long as Tekken doesn’t start receiving “Super Ultra X3” editions, we’re still on board with their decisions.
