Plus, more Nintendo costumes like Sheik and Captain Falcon.

Namco Bandai shared new video, screenshots, and information on the Wii U version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 at Comic-Con in New York City today.

Tekken Ball,” which first debuted in Tekken 3 for PSone, returns in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition after a long absence. In it, players can go head to head in a volleyball / dodgeball hybrid game. Players are tasked with protecting their side of the court by hitting a ball over to the other player’s side of the field. The longer the volley between courts, the more damaging the ball’s attack when it finally hits a player. The mode will include multiple ball types with different speeds and damages, as well as tournament and exhibition modes.

As previously revealed, the Wii U version also includes costumes from famous Nintendo properties. New costumes shown today include Toad and Princess Peach from Super Mario Bros., Sheik from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and Captain Falcon F-Zero. Already announced costumes include Zero Suit Samus, Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Fox McCloud, Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf.

View the screenshots at the gallery. Watch the trailer below.

    Wow, great.
    I understand the Mushroom-Mode and the costumes, but why not give Tekken Ball to the rest of the consoles?

    Ohoh, I loved this minigame back in Tekken 3! I still think Tekken 3 is the best game in the series, btw.

      Tekken 3 had Gon.

      It is the victor

      • FaithlessMr

         Damn right! The game was PACKED with secrets and unlockables.

        • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

          Man,makes me kind sad looking at Tekken now compared to then :

          • FaithlessMr

             Indeed. At the time,most games were just riddled with secrets and easter eggs. The whole Castlevania Symphony of the Night thing was also one of the mindblowers back then :P

            Nowadays, secrets and unlockables turn to paid DLC.

            • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

              Exactly,gaming has fallen :’|
