Spin-offs are regarded with mixed feelings, especially in the video game universe. It's a quick deviation away from the main storyline and it can provide gamers with the ability to test new features, characters and a non-canonical alteration to the game's universe. Already released under another spin-off game for 2012, Tekken is back with the anticipated return tournament game: Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
There are a few video game fighting series that have survived the test of time - Tekken being one of them. It's a great fighting chronicle with some of the most interesting characters in their game roster. I've never played any of the original installments in the storyline until last year with Tekken 6 and I realized that I did, in fact, play the original game as a child. In terms of this new entry in the spin-off series, I'm not sure if I'll actually get it. Main entries and canonical installments provide more to the overall storyline; sometimes a spin-off game can be mostly just filler until the next "main" game is released.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 doesn't come out for a few months so I'll have some time to decide. However, I've heard some reports that Tekken 7 might already be in development. I may need to read a few more gaming websites and blogs to learn more. Until then, feel free to check out the official trailer to Tekken Tag Tournament 2 below (provided by Gamespot).
