Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition adds more Nintendo costumes, return of Tekken Ball

The Wii U edition of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will feature a slew of character costumes based on Nintendo fan favorites, including Mario, Link, Samus, and Princess Peach. Adding to the Nintendo-themed wardrobe today are newly confirmed costumes from Captain Falcon from F-Zero, Toad from Super Mario Bros, and Shiek from The Legend of Zelda.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition adds more than just costumes on the Mushroom Battle mode, thanks to the return of Tekken Ball. The mini-game, which first appeared in Tekken 3, sees two players volleying a ball back and forth, charging it up to do damage to their opponent. Throw on some of the pre-order exclusive bikinis and you'll have the closest thing Tekken comes to an extreme beach volleyball option.

The game's new trailer shows a wider range of fighters wearing all those Nintendo costumes, including Kuma in Mario's overalls and Panda in Princess Peach's signature pink dress.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition is planned for release on November 30th, not long after the launch of Nintendo's next-generation console.
