Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will feature a new online service
Namco Bandai just released information regarding a new, ‘unprecedented’ online service that will be supporting Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Called World Tekken Federation, the service will allow players to track personal statistics and compare them against worldwide leaderboards.
It’s not just a leaderboard, however, as it will also allow players to create and manage teams, compete in online events, and discuss strategies through an online forum. Although, with the fighting game community being so competitive, I don’t expect there to be many helpful strategies revealed. Regardless, this actually sounds a lot like the Call of Duty Elite service. And, if it works out, may very well be a groundbreaking service and forerunner to future services such as this for the fighting game genre.
“World Tekken Federation is a premium service that aims to connect players to the Tekken worldwide community in a way never before seen with a fighting game,” said Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing for Namco Bandai Games America Inc. “Being able to unite the entire Tekken global community is an incredibly exciting initiative that will help extend the competitive nature of the series well past Tekken Tag Tournament 2’s launch date.”
What do you all think? Will it be a good thing for the community or will it just be another ‘good idea’?
