Mashfest – Tekken Tag Tournament 2

Do you guys even remember the 1st Tekken game? Because I sure can’t, what with all the years that have passed. Actually, you know what, I didn’t even get to play the first two Tekken games. I only remember playing Tekken 3. Which, by the way, was such an overly awesome game! The first Tekken game was released back in 1994, and it has been over 18 years for its latest sequel to come out. A spinoff from the main title and the sequel to the 1999 Tekken Tag Tournament, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is coming out for September 11 here in the United States. This article is targeted for those living in and around New York. But if you’re not from New York, you’re still welcome to read this post.

First up, for those on the down low( I believe my street creds have gone up a notch from that phrase alone), Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is the sequel to the first TTT. Hence the “2″ in the title. Story wise, every Tekken game that was ever released all had one theme. Fight your way to the top so you can control a militant company run by the Mishimas. But unlike the first TTT, TTT 2 actually has a storyline, albeit not part of the canon. It’s still unclear as to what the actual plot is. Fans have speculated that this game is just a “dream match” giving them the opportunity to play and fight as every character in the entire roster of Tekken, including the ones that disappeared a long time ago. This was according to the Wikipedia page of Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

Here’s an image of all the playable characters in Tekken Tag Tournament 2:

Now, you may have noticed the word “Mashfest” on the title, and that’s for a good reason. Mainly, this post is to inform our readers living in New York about Sonic Boom Box’ release party of Tekken Tag Tournament 2. It’s unfortunate that not all of us are in New York for this little party, but it’s still cool to see what’s up with the guys in the east coast. According to Sonic Boom Box’ invite page, the event will be held on September 11th, the very same day the game will be released to the public… in North America.

Go visit Village Pourhouse at 64 3rd Ave (at 11th st), New York, New York 10003 and check it out at around 6pm until 10pm. There’s an entry fee of 3 bucks but who cares and ladies get in for free. They’ve got controllers for both the PlayStation 3 and the XBox 360. For those loving the arcade theme, you should bring your own stick. For more information, go check out the invite page Sonic Boom Box has put out in Facebook, click join if you’re interested, and have some freakin’ good time.

 

Let me end this article with a gameplay video from Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Remember, it’s coming out on September 11th for both the PlayStation 3 and the XBox 360. And I’m out:
