Tekken Tag 2 Character Leak

Tekken Tag 2 Character Leak

With Tekken Tag 2 on the horizon and E3 promising to reveal some new characters, people have been keeping their fingers crossed in anticipation of fan favorites making some reappearances. Recent images have come to show three new characters in the Tekken Tag 2 line up, all in the same art style of previously released characters. The three new characters include: Kunimitsu, the long lost ninja rival of Yoshitmitsu, Angel, the foil to the infamous Devil and Ogre, the ominous boss character of Tekken 3. For those of you new to the Tekken franchise, here is the run down.


Kunimitsu
Appearances: Tekken, Tekken 2, Tekken Tag Tournament, Street Fighter X Tekken (Background Cameo)
Kunimitsu is a former member of the bandit ninja clan known as the Manji, the clan led my Yoshimitsu. She is a female ninja skilled in Manji ninja arts and is proficient with daggers. In the first Tekken tournament, her goal was to steal a priceless Native American artifact from Michelle Chang. Having failed in this venture, she went into hiding until the next tournament. In the next tournament, Kunimitsu returns attempting to steal Yoshimitsu’s Manji clan sword for her grandfather so that he may forge an exact copy of it. Kunimitsu has not been seen since the events of the second King of Iron Fist Tournament.

Angel
Appearances: Tekken 2, Tekken Tag Tournament
Angel is the embodiment of good within Kazuya during his struggle with the Devil Gene. Angel attempted to fight against Devil and save Kazuya from his influence, but failed. Many believe her to be the influence upon Kazuya from Jun (the two together are the parents of Jin Kazama) whom he met during the second Iron Fist Tournament. With the reappearance of Jun’s character in Tekken Tag 2, many believe this to be more than a coincidence.


Ogre
Appearances: Tekken 3, Tekken Tag Tournament, Namco X Capcom, Street Fighter X Tekken
Ogre is a mystical being whose ruins in Mexico were once disturbed by the Mishima Zaibatsu’s Tekken Force, who he easily dispatched. Ogre is the God of Fighting and another worldly source of power. He is known for using techniques taken from various other world renowned fighters. Ogre assaulted Baek Doo San, killed the Original King and fought Jun Kazama during Jin’s youth. After this, Jun disappeared and caused Jin to train with Heihachi so that one day he may be able to take Ogre down him. Ogre was defeated in the 3rd King of Iron Fist Tournament by Paul Phoenix after which he assumed his true form known as “True Ogre” and was then defeated by Jin. Ogre has not been seen since.

    I’m super excited about the new Tekken Tag. I dominated with my Xiaoyu/Eddy combo in the first one. Can’t wait to wreck shop with the old team.
