Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will receive small balance tweaks for console versions

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TTT2) producer Katsuhiro Harada took part in a Q&A session with GameSpot Australia and Shadowloo. Harada discussed many topics regarding TTT2. Chief among them was balancing.

While we shouldn't expect great character changes in the future, there will be some minor adjustments. Here are some notes from the Q&A session (via EventHubs):

  • They've done a series of balance updates in the arcade releases of TTT2, and they will make some small/minor tweaks to the characters for the console release of the game too, mostly cause of adding all of the new fighters. They said the changes are minor, they're not going to change the core gameplay much.
  • Harada is also considering tweaking the solo mode vs. tag mode balance a bit as well.
  • While some people complained Steve was too dominate in Tekken 6, Harada said the data they pulled from online matches and arcade sets showed that people lost to other characters more.
