Tekken Tag Tournament 2 adds Snoop Lion track suits, costume painting for Wii U release

Rapper Snoop Dogg adopted his new reggae persona Snoop Lion this summer following the opening of his "third eye" and well after Namco Bandai had announced his appearance in a Snoop Dogg-themed arena for Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

With the release of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition, the Snoop references will feel slightly more current, as the Tekken team has added Snoop Lion track suits to the Wii U fighting game. It appears the virtual version of Snoop himself will retain his pre-Rastafarian enlightenment appearance, sitting atop a purple throne in front of a sign reading "Tha Doggfather."

In addition to Snoop Lion tracksuits, new images from the Wii U version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 show off the game's costume customization. Players can use the Wii U GamePad's touchscreen to draw simple decals onto clothing, as illustrated by Panda's jack o'lantern scarf and Xiaoyu's goth dress.

More Tekken fighters are also shown wearing Nintendo character costumes, like Jinpachi in a Toad outfit and Marduk wearing (most of) Captain Falcon's clothing.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition will be released alongside the Wii U itself on Nov. 18.
