When Tekken meets Nintendo, all power-ups break loose.
Tekken's arrival on Wii U is just as goofy as it is awesome. There's no other way of saying it. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 arrives on Wii U with the utter awesome that Tekken has been known for. From button mashing combos to timed out combo sets, Tekken is coming in full swing here. The fighter brings along a plethora of characters including my personal favorite, Panda.
Nintendo is as prevalent in the game as it can be. Along with other costume packs come the Nintendo-themed outfits where characters can don the red and green hats of the Super Mario Bros. The Wii U version also adds a brand new exclusive game mode. In this Mushroom mode players will be duking it out in traditional Tekken fashion but will be surrounded by mushrooms that pop up all over the stage. These mushrooms can either make you bigger, smaller or giant. If you're wondering if this mode could actually be any fun, I can wholeheartedly say it is.
The game can be played either on the Game Pad screen or a television screen. Honestly, it doesn't make a huge difference; I mean that in a flattering way. The game looks phenomenal on both screens. The controls are tight and the game is undoubtedly fun. It plays great overall and and has the potential to be the first great fighting game for Wii U.
