Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Pre-Orders Come With 150 Swimsuit Costumes

By Ishaan . July 16, 2012 . 9:00am


Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will include over 150 swimsuit costumes as a pre-order bonus, Namco Bandai have announced. This costume bundle is in addition to the Snoop Dogg Stage and additional DLC characters—Michelle Chang, Angel, Kunimitsu or Ancient Ogre—that will be available at select retailers.


Namco showed some of the swimsuit costumes off in a new trailer which you can watch above. Naturally, these costumes are included for man, woman and panda alike. Additionally, a second trailer titled “Girls Power” can be found below:



Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will be released on September 11th in North America and September 14th in Europe for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A Wii U version will follow later this holiday season.

    Dat Loin cloth :p

    I’m happy to see both the men and women in swimsuits. While I’ll probably only put some of the girls in them, it’s good to know the men can show off their money makers as well.

  • KingGunblader

    No bikini for Yoshimitsu? D:

    • Please, anything but that! Knowing that I’ve seen Heihachi smiling in swimwear and to see Panda in swimwear too is enough, for me.

      • Considering there are “over 150” swimsuits for “over 50” characters, I’d assume it’s 3 per character for an average. So… there is a good chance for everybody. (Although I wouldn’t be surprised if the ladies turn out to get more swimsuits per character compared to the gents.)

        • Honestly, I hope that is the case. But still, getting beaten by someone using Yoshimitsu in a swimsuit will both amuse and infuriate me. I wouldn’t be surprised either if the ladies have more than the guys. 

          P.S. I loved your article of when you playtested Ys Origins. Keep up the good work with your mod duties too.

  • Seriously, Harada is the man!

    I’ve been following Harada on Twitter since the beginning of this year (maybe longer) and his generosity isn’t a stunt. No matter how obnoxious some of the fan tweets he receives, he still listens to them.

    All the recently revealed characters and the pre-order characters were characters that fans constantly kept complaining for and Harada listened.

    Some people still complain for characters that are already in the game such as Jun, much to Harada’s dismay.

    • I am completely happy with that which Harada-san is giving us currently. However, in my list, only one single character is missing at this moment; Miharu Hirano!

      It would be awesome times two if she will be included in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. I want to team her up with my main, Ling Xiaoyu. :)

      • raymk

        I honestly think she is in after tiger,law,alex and violet got in the game and they were 100% clones from the old games.  Now they have some different moves from each other and its not like there’s anyone else other than her and dr b left to get.  Plus I saw her in a cg scene so i’d like to guess she’s 100% int he game.

  • So all pre-orders are getting this?! 

    *imagines Angel in swimwear… nosebleed heaven* 

    *imagines True Ogre in swi-* *flat line*   

    @OhKeh sums up my gratitude for Harada!

  • I’m not taking back what I said. Speedo-wearing Lee players, prepare yourselves. xD

  • SirRichard

    Welp, at least I don’t have to worry about fighting panda bears in thongs online.

    …I hope.

    • “Oh wait…”

      • Testsubject909

        I now know who I’ll be playing as online!

  • Tee Niitris

    Swimsuits for girls,
    Swimsuits for GUYS,
    Swimsuits for ANIMALS,
    Swimsuits for robot-cyborg-hybrid-things…

    Tekken’s girls may not be as hot as DoA’s beauties, but at least Namco is getting everyone involved with this one.

    (except for Christie; Christie looks undeniably hot) ^_^

    Your move Team Ninja.

    • Nitraion

      I believe team ninja have made their move earlier but it will be nice if DOA 5 include the costumize char too…

    • Fitzkrieg

       I dunno about Christie, her massive shoulders always bothered me a bit.

    • komiko12

      Christie’s swimsuit makes little difference.
      Most of her clothes are similar to bikinis.

  • xavier axol

    it might downgrade women, but does upgrade my interes!
    too much cover up, i gotta leave it to my imagination.
    it was my little fellow that brought me here.
    well, excuse me while i chuck the turkey.

  • GreekGod88

    no way im gonna dress my Lars like Kazuya in this trailer xD
    My Lars will get the POWER RANGERS Outfit¯\(º_o)/¯
    TTT2 is my most wanted this year

  • Loving Lilis swim suit *drools* 

  • eilegz

    somehow doa5 bikini woman looks better than tekken i dont know why (some girls looks like a woman boxing o MMA), anyways good move for tekken team and harada san

    • Testsubject909

      Musculature. Is what I’d say.

  • WyattEpp

    “Back in his younger days, Heihachi was a lot more liberal with the things he wore.”

    It doesn’t get much more traditional than fundoshi, though….

    • We live in modern times! Perhaps Heihachi felt a yearning for the days of old?

      • I’ll say… Just look at his Super Robot V-hair.

        • aoihana

          Ah, yes, his nostalgic hair makes my whole body quiver.

          Uuuah~ (。’▽’。)♡

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    I guess in these fights everybody wins

    …I wonder how does Yoshimitsu look

  • Tales_of_Master

    Is this….DOA ? Still awesome though :D

    • omeganeko

       nope this has 100% more man thongs

  • aoihana

    Man, that’s an incredibly awesome pre-order bonus! We’ve had a few awesome costumes here and there, but 150?!

    Also, I think it’s really neat that the guys will have swimsuits, too. I remember someone asking for them in the Dead or Alive 5, but this is the next best thing, I suppose!

    I always wanted to troll online and obliterate people as Heihachi in a thong, so glad to see that may just come true! (*^ワ^*)

    • Testsubject909

      Such refined tastes!

      Though how about a thong with a leopard print and pattern?

      • DuskSharkEX

         Even better!

  • Valkenhayn

    Panda has the best swimsuit.

    Jk lol gotta love that kick Nina gave at the end

  • GAAAH!!! I repent not having a Ps3 yet! This pre-Order bonus is a BOMB! oAo

    Harada does things hella right! Learn from this 3rd party companies!

  • Crimson_Cloud

    I know I’m gonna get chewed for this but I have to say that the body structure of girls is rather… how should I put it, a bit too manly? Maybe it’s the wider shoulders or something but I definitely think that DoA bodies exceeds TEkken in this regard.

    Still… Lili in swimsuit! *dies* ^^

    • zferolie

       I won’t chew you out, but I can see why you think that. Personally, I think these ladies are more realistic then the DoA ones… not so much Goddesses or Models and more good looking people.

      I don’t feel that bad putting these people in swimsuits then I would in DoA… doesn’t mean I won’t(for christie anyway… oh Christie…)

  • SirTeffy

    THIS is the kind of beefcake DoA needs… Loving the guys’ swimsuits!

  • leadintea

    I’m excited for the swimsuits simply because I want to know what Leo’s real sex is.

    •  Lol, she is officially a woman, her full name is “Eleonora “Leo” Kliese”

      • when was this revealed xD LOL I’m not surprised tbh xDDD

        • From as far back as the time of Tekken 6. It’s old news, really.

          • Seriously? Man I must’ve been living under an Online Rock xD

          • NaelAM

             It was almost a year ago, but, yes, Harada confirmed that Leo is a girl:

          •  Actually, taking into consideration how long we’ve not known, it’s relatively new news. It was only revealed last autumn at a German event (because Leo is German) and Kaz himself stated her full name and gender. So fans have been in the dark for quite awhile actually, since ’09, or ’07 even if you want to go back to the arcade release.

          • Huh. Considering she’s voiced by Veronica Taylor, I thought that was rather obvious to begin with.

          •  @DrakosAmatras:disqus Namco’s original intent was to create a character that people could enjoy regardless of gender. As for how “obvious” it was or wasn’t, due to the number of female VAs that voice younger male characters and the fact that it is much easier for female VAs to do androgynous voices than male VAs, Namco did they only thing they really could to better keep secret her gender by getting a female VA to voice her, other than not having her voiced.

            Really, how obvious it was wasn’t anything more than how strongly you felt one way or the other. :)

  • I wish I felt that pretty when I cosplayed…

  • thundergodCN

    Feel sorry for king as the guy’s junk would probably be face close during his grabs 

  • Kitestwinblades

    Alright… enough with the tease… Whats Leo going to Wear? XD
    Kunimitsu is wearing the same outfit in her early concept art :3 Sweet.
    And everyone knew it was coming. Lee in speedos lol

    Itagaki may not be with Team ninja anymore but I cant help but feel this was yet another direct punch to DoA XD

    • Göran Isacson

      Oh my god. LEO’S SWIMWEAR. I can’t even begin to imagine what it will be… unless they will “cheat” and go with a fully covering suit like they gave Ganryu.

      • Kitestwinblades

        Namco went through the trouble of telling us her gender.
        They might as well go all out (~´▽`)~ lol

        but yeah… they’ll probably cheat. Probably a t-shirt, shorts, and sandals.

  • Heihachi in fundoshi: Eat your heart out, Dead or Alive.

  • ThomasTruong

    JACK-6 demands robot bikini.

  • since when tekken series become like DOA series , “come with bikini costume” u kidding me , i am not gonna buy this game

    • Guest

      You don’t have to buy the game for yourself, no one’s forcing you, but you do have to buy it for me

    • Testsubject909

      So, one article states that the creator is fighting to ensure that DLCs such as extra stages, characters and other key components to a fighting game are maintained as Free.

      While only stretching the idea of extra costumes as possible paid DLC.

      And because there’s a bunch of extra DLC costumes if you pre-order the game, you choose to not purchase it?

      Is it because of sudden fanservice? I was sure there was always fanservice in Tekken…

    • nonsense.

  • Yu_TheKing


  • Sonny Reyes

     Ooh, excellent!~ *does Lee’s one-eyed wink and thumbs up*


  • Göran Isacson

    Oky, so Raven sports a fundoshi and Kunimitsu a melon-patterned bikini… BUT WHAT ABOUT YOSHIMITSU? I mean seriously do we even know what the dude looks like naked? I thought that him sporting a Tuxedo was strange enough (and it will make it very strange to fight any character who might be sporting a sailor fuku) but now he’s going to show skin? Will they still keep that weird blue-skinned body he had in Tekken 5? IS HE AN ALIEN? A CYBORG? Soon… the world will know.

    • It was stated quite clearly that he is human…or at least he was at one point, in the time of Tekken 1 and 2.

      In Tekken 3 and afterwards, who the heck knows?

      • Göran Isacson

        Ha ha, who knows indeed- what hides beneath that armor might just be too much for mortal minds to comprehend.

    • Testsubject909

      What about him wearing a woman’s bikini on top of his usual fully covered up self?

      • Göran Isacson

        … I am completely and totally okay with this option.

  • Rolling Guy

    DAMNIT! HARADA! TAKE ALL MY MONEY! I do hope we get this as paid DLC as well. I don’t think the pre orders in my country actually contains the codes for these specials. “orz


  • Im scared to see what Leo looks like in a bikini *shivers*…

    • she’ll probably surprise us with giant boobs. she has to bind them with the figure she has in tekken 6.

  • Testsubject909

    *goes through the comments, returns*

    Well then. For Sir Richard, I shall have to learn how to play with a Panda sporting a thong and for Garyuu, I’ll have to learn how to play as Lee wearing a speedo!

    Hmm… Not sure if Challenge Accepted…

  • SaiyanJedi_Trunks

    Just another reason why I am getting this game and continue to love Tekken even more.

    Loved the trailer.

    Not mention, in order to give equality…its not just women getting the swimsuits!…Tekken just seems to to have fun and do it right.
