Sony Playstation 2 Tekken Tag Tournament SKUPS27

Sony Playstation 2 Tekken Tag Tournament SKUPS27 is the fourth main installment in Namco’s Tekken fighting game series. It, however, is not canonical to the Tekken storyline.

Continuing the fighting mechanics from Tekken 3, Tekken Tag sees players battling in teams of two characters. At any point in the match, the player can hit a tag button to swap out with their other fighter, allowing the resting fighter to recover some lost health. The tag can be implemented in many ways, such as in between combos or utilising special throws. At times when a resting fighter’s is flashing, that character can be tagged in to be given a temporary boost in strength. Unlike other tag games such as Capcom’s Vs. series, players are defeated when only one of their fighters lose all their health, requiring players to be strategic about tagging their fighters. In the event of a timeout, the team with the most accumulative health remaining wins the round.

The game features over 35 characters that have previously appeared in Tekken 2 and Tekken 3. In addition, there is a boss character, Unknown, who is similar to Tekken 3’s Mokujin in that she can randomly imitate any character’s fighting style, albeit she is able to change her style any time during the fight. The PlayStation 2 version added enhanced graphics and various modes, including 1-on-1 mode, in which players only choose one fighter each, and Team Battle, where players choose up to eight battles and play with the tag rules, with each new character replacing the one that was defeated (the remaining fighter must fight on his/her own). Also featured is “Tekken Bowl” mode, a bowling minigame where each character has different attributes.

The arcade and console versions of Tekken Tag Tournament differ slightly. The arcade version ran on a 32-bit engine, utilizing the graphics engine of Tekken 3. These graphics ran using the Tekken 3 PCB board, based on the Playstation hardware. The console version ran on a highly updated engine, utilizing the PlayStation 2’s graphics processor. The game does not run on a 32-bit engine, yet on a new and updated engine highly similar to that found on Tekken 4. The background designs and BGMs differed too, as the console version has new updated tracks, while the arcade version was based on MIDI tracks with an instrumental backing. Unknown is not playable on the arcade version, yet the character is on the PlayStation 2 version. The arcade version also allows players to only select the alternative colours that have been added to the costumes at first, while the normally colored ones are unlocked when the bonus characters are. There are also crucial differences concerning the playability of the characters. Some moves or attacks are much more efficient in the arcade version than in the console version and vice versa.
