Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is shaping to be a very interesting game. Jun Kazama, mother of Jin, is returning as well as Tekken 3’s intimidating final boss True Ogre.
Katsuhiro Harada, producer of the Tekken series, had a little fun over the weekend by showing off a few pictures of Jun and one of True Ogre. He also posted a video of Devil Kazuya (!!!) on his Twitter. It appears that Kazuya’s Devil form may be nothing more than an item move, but it’s still awesome to see Devil Kazuya back in some form or another.
Here’s the video of Devil Kazuya.
Here’s True Ogre’s test model.
And here is the reason everyone probably ended up at this article: Jun Kazama!
My thoughts? Devil Kazuya is a little ho-hum, as I would rather see a complete model of the character and not just wings being tacked onto Kazuya. True Ogre is looking pretty cool, and he definitely gives off a “this is what nightmares are made of” sort of vibe.
Jun is looking very cool so far, and I’m digging the whole older and mature look. Finally, Tekken gets a female fighter who is older than thirty! Can’t wait to see what moveset Jun has since Asuka stole all of her old moves when she came along in Tekken 5.
There is also JayCee, who is heavily speculated to be Julia Chang. The belief that it’s Julia is a pretty solid case, since JayCee wears Julia’s necklace and has several of her moves.
Devil Kazuya, JayCee, Jun, and True Ogre look set to make Tekken Tag Tournament 2 a very enjoyable fighter. Heck, even Jun would’ve been enough on her own to please the fans. All the game needs now is Kunimitsu. Given how the Tekken Tag games include all canon characters, I think that it’s pretty safe to assume that she’ll show her face (er, mask) at some point. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
For anyone who missed the recent trailer that revealed Jun and True Ogre, here it is again.
