Before you start panicking, remember Capcom isn’t the ones who make Tekken Tag Tournament. It was discovered that on top of the forty nine characters on the disc and four free DLC characters for pre-ordering, there was an additional six characters found by players who were mining on the game’s data code. Those six characters are Slim Bob; the skinny version of Bob who was shown in his Tekken 6 ending, Sebastian; Emilie de Rochefort (Lili)’s butler who follows her around, Miharu Hirano; classmate of Ling Xiaoyu and Jin Kazama who appeared as an alternate skin for Xiaoyu in Tekken 4, Violet; alternate personality for Lee Chaolan in Tekken 4, Doctor Bosconovitch; a man who’s been in numerous endings from Tekken 1 and included as an unorthodox character in Tekken 3 and finally Unknown; who is the final boss of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and evil persona of Jun Kazama.
These six characters could be tied into a comment producer Katsuhiro Harada made during San Diego Comi-Con where he offered two hints at characters:
Hint 1: “One is a character a lot of people have been asking for his return. So, maybe they won’t be surprised, but a lot of people will be happy to hear about this.”
Hint 2: “Maybe, it’s not quite a new character, but it’s one people will be very surprised at. This character is one that they wouldn’t have discovered.”
As we all know, Harada said that DLC characters will be free and that if he were to charge for any kind of DLC, it would be for cosmetic items such as things to customize characters. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 hits tomorrow for PS3 and Xbox 360 in North America with a Wii-U release later this winter.
