Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition has online multiplayer, but unlike the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions an online pass is not required. New copies of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 include an online pass, but if you purchase the game used you need to spend $10 to fight online.
Before you can get online you need to download an update for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition, which took about five minutes to complete. I fought against a couple of players in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition online. Two matches were choppy with the latency meter switching between 1 and 5 bars throughout the battle. Another fight was smooth even though the latency rating was only 2 bars. Perhaps, that connection was "better" since it stayed 2 bars for the fight’s duration. Consider these early impressions since the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition community is rather small. Getting into a scuffle can take up to five minutes.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition has all of the DLC and the pre-order bonus characters unlocked. Bonus stages like Snoop Lion’s ring are available in Wii U Edition too. Namco Bandai also made a bunch of Nintendo crossover costumes for the game. These are preset, so you can’t dress Jun up like Mario.
If you’re wondering who dresses up as Bowser in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition, here’s the complete crossover costume list.
Baek Doo San
