A huge batch of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 information has been released in recent days, including the opening cinematic, a couple of trailers, and images of bonus costumes for the game that have been designed by a few famous manga and anime artists.

First off, the opening sets the stage for the game’s story, introducing a variety of characters in an effort to get players ready for the next chapter in the Tekken saga. From this video alone, it’s evident that Namco Bandai is working to make this the most definitive Tekken experience yet, with a wide array of both classic and fan favorite characters from every corner of the series’ universe.

Next, a new trailer showcasing the game’s online modes was released earlier this morning, which include the usual trappings like player matches, ranked matches, and replays. They’re set to make the online experience a fun one for both grizzled competitive veterans and new players jumping into the game for the first time. Also, the World Tekken Federation system will allow players to set up their own personal player card, complete with stats, leaderboard placings, and team creation.

Another report this morning, this time from Famitsu, reveals that there will be a number of bonus costumes included in the game that have been designed by a few famous artists who have contributed their skills to manga, anime, and other video games. The complete list has been included below, as well as the corresponding images, screenshots of them in action, some customization items, special character select images, and a new trailer that shows off the game’s customization options.
