Hori Offering Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue Arcade Stick

By on November 16, 2011 at 2:25 pm

As we all eagerly await the release of Tekken Hybrid, Hori has unveiled a special arcade stick to celebrate the release of the second-most anticipated fighting game of next week. SDTekken found a listing on Amazon.co.jp for a Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Prologue Real Arcade Pro 3.

TTT2 Prologue, which combines its powers with the original TTT in HD and the Blood Vengeance 3D movie to form the Voltron that is Tekken Hybrid, is the first taste on consoles of the long-awaited next game in the Tekken franchise. Prologue only has four available characters–and thus just six possible team combinations–but it should help tie fans over just a little bit until the full Tekken Tag Tournament 2 hits consoles in a couple years. (Well, fans with PS3s anyway.) And the re-skinned HRAP3, which ships with the Japanese release of Tekken Hybrid on December 1st, is a welcome addition.

The Hori TTT2 Prologue PS3 stick costs 9,801 yen (about $130 USD), but Amazon will give you a better deal if you bundle it with Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Obviously.
