Geddit? WTF? That the acronym you can use to refer to Tekken Tag Tournament 2‘s expanded online functionality, and it’s really quite apt, given the staggering amount of free content – all DLC characters, stages, and techniques – Namco Bandai is giving away to fans. (Seriously, folks, you’re missing out on a lot if you don’t pre-order.)
On top of the basic online functionality (6-player lobbies, replays; game updates that will add even more modes like 50-player lobby arenas and 16-player lounges), a “World Tekken Federation” service will let you track detailed player stats, leaderboard rankings, and create teams – this is essentially clan support in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
Just don’t get hung up on the phrase” a new premium service” when the emcee says it in the trailer. Many in the fighting games community were concerned, since the word “premium” usually means “paid” content in MMOs and other free-to-play titles, but in Tekken Tag Tournament 2’s case, it’s really not used in that context.
The World Tekken Federation service is free to all players, according to Mad Catz’s Mark “Markman” Julio who responded to a query on Twitter asking if WTF was something that had to be paid for monthly or annually.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, the emcee’s Corissa Furr, who played Lili in the
“Bad Girls” “Girls Power” trailer for TTT2:
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is scheduled for release on September 11 in Singapore and the US.
