Is there any better way to market a fighting game than to put all of its ladies in scantily-clad bikinis? Yes, yes there is. As part of the pre-order DLC for Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Namco Bandai will be offering over 100 swimsuits for players to pick and choose from. The best part? The deal is not exclusive to the women of Tekken Tag Tournament 2, so anytime you want to see Kuma’s big furry body rocking the swimwear, you can go for it.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is not the first game of the fighting genre to offer swimwear as enticing DLC, as Dead or Alive 5 featured similar content as well as SoulCalibur 5, another Namco Bandai title.
According to Andriasang, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 game director Katsuhiro Harada implied that the content will not be exclusively offered as pre-order incentives and may be released as public DLC at some point. A Twitter follower also reportedly asked Harada if the DLC included school swimsuits, with Harada replying that the developers “assumed this would be asked by Japanese players,” so they made sure to include them.
If seeing Kuma and Ganryu isn’t enough incentive to warrant a pre-order for Tekken Tag Tournament 2, a new “trailer” for the game featuring some seductive cosplay might do the trick. Check out the “Bad Girls” trailer for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 below, revealed at Comic-Con:
