Arcades may be all but dead in the United States, but in Japan they’re still a big deal. Coming up this summer is Tekken Tag Tournament 2, which will be on show at the AOU Amusement Expo this week. The AOU Amusement Expo, which is scheduled to open to the public later this week at the Makuhari Messe in the Chiba prefecture is a gaming convention with a focus on everything new and exciting in the world of arcade gaming.
For those of you who can’t make it to this year’s AOU Amusement Expo, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 producer Katsuhiro Harada “leaked” some sexy screenshots of the arcade cabinets that will be playable at the show.
Above: With disclaimers reminding you that this is a “test version” and official links to the producer’s Twitter account, these screens are certainly not “leaked” in the traditional sense, but they’re still awesome
Above: Looks like the final fight roster is still a secret. Gotta love the mosaic filter. We're guessing that you can expect to see everyone from all the previous Tekken games and maybe a new alternate costume for Mokujin
Above: Honestly, Heihachi and Xiaoyu are our favorites in Tekken 5 and 6. We can’t wait to try them in the new Tag Tournament
There has been no official release date set for the expected console version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2, but Harada has previously hinted via Twitter that the game will come sometime between Street Fighter X Tekken and Tekken X Street Fighter with extra console exclusive characters and bonus gameplay modes.
