  • Crevox

    Looks like I-No

  • Tales_of_Master

    Anna’s costum oozes Tenjho Tenge style. The Heihachi one reminds me of Lobo. All in all, nice costumes

  • omeganeko

    Alisa’s costume looks so awesome.

    • KilsanZ

      Of course it looks,it’s the same artist of Tengen Toppa Gurren Laggann,now if only kamina shades were in this….

      • omeganeko

         best victory pose ever!

  • KyoyaHibari

    Love Koyoma & Oh Great!’s designs! Looking forward to playing with them.

  • Alisa looks like a Busou Shinki *__*

  • konsama

    The designs are awesome, you keep giving me better reasons to get this!

    Anna’s costume was my favorite. xD

  • RadShiro

    Lili is best waifu.

  • Ooh, Inomata Mutsumi’s making another Tekken outfit? Cool! I loved the butterfly-flower motif she designed for Zafina. What’s she got this time? :D
    o.o ……… A rejected Spider-woman outfit?

    Oh, but that outfit is nothing compared to Ogure Ito’s design! ^_^ b Oh~ the subtlety oozing out of a tentacle costume for the resident Qipao-clad femme fatale…

    In other news, Alisa’s outfit covers more of her skin than her usual attire. But more importantly, there’s tidy design-work in there. I can dig that, even though I rarely use her.

    • puchinri

       That was Inomata~!? I don’t know how I forgot that. Wow. 0v0
      And, yeah. I loved that so much.

      This design is silly in a way, but I favor it. Interesting that she sticks to bug/insect designs with Tekken though.

  • ivanchu77

    That Alisa design looks great! , it reminds me slightly of a murakumo unit from blazblue

  • Nitraion

    Alisa sooo remind me of KOS-MOS

    • Daniel Morandi

      That make her more appealing <3

  • Alisa and Anna’s costumes look awesome! =^_^=

  • I swear Tekken Tag 2 gets better every day! Day one purchase for me even though Im not ready to retire Tekken 6 yet :'(

  • Can’t unsee Heihachi looking like Draven.

    “Welcome to the Draven of Iron Fist Draven.”

  • Setsu Oh

    so i know at last how to bring my money up in this game. alright tekkn 5 s logic is back. the same as the cooperative costume. i would like some TALENTED comic pencilers too like jim lee and alan davis. a collaboration with marvel and dc would be nice too for the costumes. jin in a superman costume wouldbe funny.
    NOW why can’t they still draw a crotch corrrectly? that jump kick foto took me all the way back to tekken 3’s xiaoyu diaper!

  • Rolling Guy


  • raymk

    Can’t wait for kunimitsu I love her costume.

  • So we get all of the perks of Tekken 6 PLUS Tekken Tag?!(Figuritively.) IM IN!~

  • Jahmere Durham

    Welp..i was on the fence…im all in now

  • Kitestwinblades

    (◎_◎)  *Explodes*

    And I was expecting this since they did it for the last few tekken games… yet this news STILL blows me away XD The customization is strong with this one. I’m dying to see how Alisa even stands in that awesome outfit.

    • omeganeko

      maybe she hovers with her powers of awesomeness.

      • Kitestwinblades

        A Dream come True! Who needs Tech Jumps when you can HOVER!? XD

        Yeah, i’m going to agree with that too. I have a feeling that kicking is going to feel especially satisfying as well lol

    • Oh, there’s a lot of customization all right. The question is: “Will those make sense?” And considering this is a non-canon Tekken game… it most likely won’t.

  • It’s so funny how each costume tells a different story. I can easily tell them apart and relate them to the artists who made them, knowing their influences and preferences and whatanot.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    Joyce’s, Alisa’s and Kunimitsu’s costumes are the only one that actually feel like the designer did costumes acording to the character personality. The other look way too… out there, and didn’t know Anna was into tentacles…

    And Asuka’s anime panel feels so unnecesarely fanservice and out of character… but young Heihachi looks boss, and Alex looks beast (pun intended, ok, I’m going to stop with the bad puns) and Kazuya is all like “you can’t handle this… dude”

    • From what I remember, these panels are just “cut-outs” from the three sets of character artwork, each set covering most of the entire roster (not counting Unknown) and done by each of the abovementioned artists. So I would think there’s a possibility that we’ll get 3 panels plus the default 3D CG for each character. Don’t quote me on that though.

  • protofox

    and i though lars’ outfit done by naruto’s artist was out of place…wow.

  • Göran Isacson

    Can’t say I recognize Ryoji Minagawa, and that Asuka art… how weird is it taht she’s wearing something less modest than Lili? You’d think she if any would play up her appeal, but Asuka stripping down to a bikini just seems… off.

    As for Ogure Ito, ha ha I don’t even know anymore. I think I’ve long come to accept that Oh!Great inhabits a world of his own when it comes to character outfits and storytelling logic, and it’s best just to… let it roll over you. Just let it happen. You may need a shower afterwards, but it still ends quicker if you just submit.

    • puchinri

       Hah! Aha. Hahaha. Yeah. You worded that pretty much how I see it too. Sometimes (most of the time!) his designs, and even story/+ ideas start off reasonable and sensible even, even if quirky and his style. But eventually (sometimes not even after that long), it just gets incredibly “Oh!Great”-ish and that’s all that can be said about it.

      • Göran Isacson

        Hey hey, puchinri. Did you know? Air Gear… is about rollerblades! No fooling! And do you know something REALLY weird? Tenjo Tenge is about street fights between school punks! No I swear, it’s the truth =3

        • puchinri

           . . .w-wait. . . WHAT!?

          But I thought the point of Air Gear was to eventually unveil how great Obama is and how ridiculous Oh!Great can make designs, and that Tenjo Tenge was about perverted losers as fake-real main characters and ghost nudity travelling!? ;A;

          Could it be that. . . my reality is a LIE!? TTATT

          • Göran Isacson

            And now all I can think of is how Air Gear will end with Obama and ikki rollerblading into the sunset, while high fiving.

            And then they travel through time to, I dunno, be righteous in every era ever. It is the only way this manga can possibly end right now.

          • puchinri

             Exactly. Man. Oh!Great will have disappointed me greatly if this doesn’t happen now.

  • puchinri

    Ogure also did a costume for Lili last time, right? Interesting that he did one for Anna this time~. Honestly, given his tastes and style, I think his costumes are definitely suited more towards characters like Anna (and characters that are legal, ahem).

    Lovin Mutsumi Inomata’s design too. It’s ridiculous in such an awesome way. I really love Koyama and Terada’s designs too. Glad to see artists I like making costumes for the game~. Again.
