Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue To Focus On Blood Vengeance Characters

By Ishaan . August 2, 2011 . 3:32pm

Speaking to the PlayStation blog at the EVO 2011 tournament, Tekken series director, Katsuhiro Harada, discussed the visual upgrades to Tekken Tag Tournament HD in the Tekken Hybrid package for PlayStation 3.


“We wanted to keep the feeling of the game itself from the PS2, so we haven’t changed a lot there,” Harada revealed. “The graphics aren’t just upscaled or anything, we actually re-created a lot of the in-game textures. A lot of work went into refining the graphics. Another reason we’re doing it now is because a lot of people in Europe played the PAL version, which was a slower version of the game. Now they’ll be able to get the full experience here. There are also younger players out there who never played it, and I think it will appeal to them.”


Harada also touched upon Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue, which will also be included as part of the Tekken Hybrid package. Harada says that, for Prologue, the development team is focusing on characters present in the Tekken: Blood Vengeance movie, as they’d like those characters to have the spotlight. So far, only Devil and Ling Xiaoyu have been confirmed as playable characters, and retain their costumes from the movie.


Like Tekken: Blood Vengeance, Harada says, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue will have support for stereoscopic 3D visuals.

    I love how, when companies say that, they never explain why they chose to not bother making the original PAL version full speed to begin with.

    One can only be thankful of how the HD formats finally brought an end to the NTSC-PAL divide (bar some 1080i50 contents on Blu-Ray).

    Oh my god lol. This picture is hilarious on so many levels!

  • MarkMario

    What is Dragunov doing!?
    And I’m not sure if Jin is enjoying it or not.

  • Jin: D8

    Dragunov:… l:
    And yeah can’t wait

  • HistorysGreatestMonster

    Dragonov has this expression on his face like, “What have I been doing all my life? Is this really all there is?”

  • Setsu Oh

    really? -i ll try to temper my comment here but- redo the textures? well if it looked like tekken 5 i could have believed it, but that….looks like tekken 3 way too much to me.
    and really kids already have 6, soon tag 2 which are way better visualy…. i don’t think they’ll go for the taghd. waste of time, waste of money when they could have used it to finance a much better than 6’s tekken force.yep. i said it.

  • puchinri

    Huh, that’s nice. Harada (and team), you are awesome~.

    And I just love that screen. Dragonov just makes everything so much more ridiculous and so much better.

  • PrinceHeir

    hopefully they put that Devil Kazuya model on the full game.

    i want that Devil O_O

  • uuugh, it hurts so good!!

  • TempestTwin

    I’m more interested in Tekken Blood Vengeance then the game itself.
