Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is an upgrade to the first Tekken Tag tournament game, released in June 2021. It received an overhaul, titled Unlimited, in December of that year. A second console version based on this upgrade was also released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in September of that year. While it received a lot of critical acclaim, it failed to garner many fans of the game, largely due to the game's similarity to that of Soul Calibur.
In comparison to Soul Calibur, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 features an all new fighting system that allows four players to compete against each other in turn-based matches. Tekken Tag is the follow up to the hit fighting series Soul Calibur, and serves as a spiritual sequel to its predecessor. The player takes on the role of either Jin Shiritsu the son of Heihachi, or Heihachi's evil twin, Hagane.
Control for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 follows the same action/fighting video game formula seen in previous entries, with the exception of the characters. Each participant fights with a special move, and then has a chance to counter with additional moves and attacks. Unlike Soul Calibur, however, in-game fighting is not only done with one character, but two can fight at the same time if two separate controllers are used. There are also various special "moves" that can be performed by using certain buttons on the controller when a fight happens - these moves are different than the ones used in Soul Calibur and the Tekken series.
