Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada was asked about whether Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for Wii U will have exclusive modes that are not included in the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions. Harada claims that the Wii U version will have features that are more convenient because players can control them directly from the Wii U GamePad’s interface.
According to Harada, while the overall game mechanics will remain the same, some “Nintendo-like” modes will be included in the Wii U version. For example, like in the picture above, Heihachi Mishima ate a mega mushroom, which was introduced in New Super Mario Bros., and got bigger.
Will the Wii-U version have any distinctly different modes to the 360 and PS3 versions?
“Well, because of the controller, obviously there are going to be a few features that are more convenient because you can control them directly from the interface. But it’s not like the overall game mechanics are going to change that drastically. There are going to be some modes that will be interesting, because they are very Nintendo like. Some of this was shown at E3, where a mushroom drops down and Heihachi eats it and gets bigger. You know Nintendo fans hearing and seeing that just exploded with excitement. The things that we can do because it is Nintendo are things people will be very excited about, but we can’t go into it any further. That being said though, a lot of the online modes and customisation on the 360 and PS3 will be geared towards the core audience a little bit more.”
