imageNamco Bandai will release Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition as a retail game and Wii U shop download at launch. In stores Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition costs 6,980 yen ($87). A digital copy is 6,280 yen ($78).


The downside of the downloadable version is it eats up 16.7 GB – that’s more than half of the premium Wii U’s storage space.


Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition has new features like a Tekken Ball mode, Nintendo crossover costumes, and the Mushroom Battle mode.

    That’s a lot bigger than i expected. How big is the ps3/360 version?

    • Kevin Tan

      PS3 is 17Gb from what I hear, while 360 is around 8 due to the limitations of double-layer DVDs.

      • XypherCode

        lol I don’t even know how they compress big games like this to 8gigs. O_O

        • More like chopping down content in the 360 version.

  • I saw problems with internal wii u memory, but holy crap not this soon.

    • Pyrotek85

      I guess they just intend for people to use external USB disks? I’d like having that option but the base storage size is still too small IMO.

  • Lordy, looks like buying an external hard drive for my WiiU will be likely happening far sooner than later. I’m interested to see if more games will do the same here, offering digital on release. Definitely something I wouldn’t mind after Steam handled it all so well.

    16 GB is mostly filler to keep pirates away  *nice move on there part*

    • Budgiecat

      lmao…..no. Sounds like you never heard of PC games..

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        Sounds like you never heard of iso wasteful space 

        • Budgiecat

          Pirates aren’t going to be scared away by a measely 16gb since many PC games can often be that much as well…

        • Rad Phil

          Sounds like you don’t even know the scene of isos, nor those people that “like” the message.

          “wasteful” space has been cut down before. Not only that, but it’s funny why you think that a large file size is going to scare away people, when we’re in an age of people copying MMO servers.

    • Its bluray age, games are that size uncompressed for better loading times.

  • Budgiecat

    Good lord so our options are 16 gb DD or buy the physical copy and STILL have ti install 7gb in order for it to run……for a fighting game?

    • XypherCode

      I’m not sure but I don’t think you need to install the game to run it because of the console’s faster 22.5mb/s disk speed compared to the PS3 whice has 9mb/s. So I don’t think they’ll implement any mandatory installs especially for a console with very small memory out of the box.

    “that’s more than half of the premium Wii U’s storage space” That’s what scare sme about the Wii U….. I know I know I can plug a external 1TB HD but even so… And correct me if I’m wrong but enabling external hardrives won’t make it easier to hack?

    • Kevin Tan

      The 3DS uses standard SD cards and FAT32 and has been pretty good about staying hack free.

  • AuraGuyChris

    I blame the mushrooms.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Zelda costume must have hack all the data size there.^_^

  • ffboi7

    I find it disappointing Tekken Ball was not included in the PS3 and 360 version… I have a feeling they held it back just to give the Wii-U version some extra content. I hope they will eventually release it as a DLC for PS3 and 360.
