Namco Bandai Announce Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Nationwide First-Play Tour in Partnership with Gamerbase

Namco Bandai UK have today announced a UK tour for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 where players will be able to go hands on with the hotly anticipated fighting game on Playstation 3 at branches of Gamerbase, starting at London’s Trocadero on June 28th. The tour will then move to Manchester on July 5 th and Glasgow on July 6 th. All First-Play events will kick off at 6pm and last until the venue closes.

There’s no need to book a spot, simply turn up and play Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on Playstation 3. This is an opportunity for new players to experience the innovative Fight Lab mode which teaches players how to play Tekken, rather than just teaching them the moves, and an opportunity for experienced players to come along and sharpen their skills before the game comes out on September 14 th 2012.

Tekken experts will be on hand at the London event only to help newcomers take the skills they learned in the Fight Lab and apply them to competitive situations while giving seasoned players the opportunity to test their skills against the best.

Namco Bandai and Gamerbase will supply all the equipment you’ll need to play but you are of course more than welcome to bring along your own pads or arcade sticks.

If you have any questions relating to the events, please feel free to contact us on Twitter @NamcoBandaiUK, or speak to our resident fighting game expert and Community representative, @Joukisan.
