Namco America has uploaded a new trailer to Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Unlimited, which in a way confirms what I reported on just a few days ago that this is coming to arcades in America. What is significant about this trailer is that it’s in English, tailored specifically for the Western market. For now, the release date is Spring 2012 – I imagine with the game being at Amusement Expo next week, we will be seeing it show up by April. As I have stated on the Facebook page, my hope for this is that it won’t be overpriced and that the arcade version will have enough time on the market to make up for the costs before the console release hits. At the very least where this is an online enabled machine, I have high hopes that such connectivity will allow arcades here the chance to keep the game up-to-date easily.
Now for something that hit over the weekend that I have checked into but so far have not been able to confirm. We’ve already discussed Sega’s newest music rhythm game on the site and this weekend reader Kieran May pointed out a video by the popular DigInfo News that covers all sorts of technology news coming from Japan. At the very end of the video, they state that Sega plans to release the game “overseas as well”, which is the first we’ve heard of that.It is slightly surprising as Sega has not given much love to rhythm games outside of Japan but I think that this could provide some interesting competition to the likes of DJ Max Technika 3 and ReRave. It’s also a very unique looking game, something that just wouldn’t be the same on any home release (unless someone does a circular shaped tablet one day 😛 )
