Tekken Tag Tournament 2 video is the strangest 1.5 minutes in gaming

If this trailer is supposed to make us think of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 as a highly complex, very serious fighting game then it has failed miserably. If it's supposed to make us think of it as a really fun-looking, utterly-insane take on the fighting formula...then it has succeeded with flying colors.

Notes: They're more subtle than the twirling bears, but our favorite parts of the vid were the floating sumo at 0:18, and the exploding hunter-killer chicken at 0:23.

The videos Namco Bandai has been releasing for their upcoming fighting game Tekken Tag Tournament 2 have been getting weirder and weirder. We thought it had come to a climax when we suggested to them that they include a bear bikini (opens in new tab) in their banana-hammock laden swimsuit trailer, but we were even more astonished when they actually did go ahead and put a panda in a swimsuit (opens in new tab) in the next trailer.
