Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition is a fighting game for Wii U. It is an expanded version of the PS3/Xbox 360 versions including Wii U exclusive modes, all the DLC characters, as well as each character getting a Nintendo series-themed costume.


The game is a 3D fighter like the other Tekken games. The fights take place in various 3D arenas with some obstacles. The combat generally focuses on combos and juggling the opponent. The gimmick of this side series is that each player can chooses two characters to fight with. The player can switch between each fighter at any time with the fighter off screen recovering health. If either fighter runs out of health, the player loses the round. If time runs out, the player who has the most cumulative life remaining between their fighters wins the round. The player can choose to play as Tag Team (2 vs. 2), Single (1 vs. 1) or Handicap (2 vs. 1) Matches with the option for the players to each control a player.

The game has expanded tag mechanics. Fighters switched in can continue a combo and can perform combined moves. There are new tag mechanics like Tag Throw as well as the Bound mechanics coming from Tekken 6.

The game has customization options with items and specialized KOs. The colors can be customized using the Wii U GamePad.


The main modes the player can do are Arcade, Versus, Team Battle, Time Attack, Survival and a training mode called Fight Lab.

On top of the standard fighting, the Wii U version has two exclusive modes. The Mushroom Battle mode is the standard fighting mode except it has Mario power-ups that the players can pick and be affected. Super Mushroom increases the fighter's size and power while Poison Mushrooms shrink the fighter's size and power. The Star also appears at random intervals to give invincibility

The other mode is a volleyball mode called Tekken Ball. The goal is deplete the opponent's health, but damage is mainly dealt by either spiking the ball into the opponent or getting the ball to land on their side. The ball can be charged with consecutive hits.
