Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is slated for release one year from now as a holiday 2012 title. The console version will have new unspecified features that aren’t in the arcade version currently playable in Japan. Namco Bandai promises Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will have "comprehensively reworked" online play in direct response to fan feedback.
A fan on Twitter asked Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada if the console version would have new characters. Harada tweeted back, "No comment. Surprise ;P."
