When I bought my original PlayStation, one game which kept me and many of my friends entertained for hours on end was Tekken 2. Since then the Tekken series has grown strong with each Sony console release and it looks like this will not be changing any time soon.
A recent article posted over at PSVitaHub.com has revealed a couple of leaked photos which appear to show Tekken Tag Tournament 2 running on the PlayStation Vita. Up until now we were expecting this game to hit the PlayStation 3 in 2012, but had never heard of any PS Vita release.
You can see the two screenshots below, on the left you can see some sort of PlayStation Vita banner running across the top of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 cover art, the image on the right seems to show the player selection screen with the option of enabling PlayStation NEAR. For those of you who don’t know NEAR is said to be the Vita’s equivalent of SportPass for 3DS and it is a location-based gift system – you can find out more about NEAR here.
It is no shock to see evidence which seems to suggest Tekken is coming to PS Vita, but we are a little shocked to see that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 seems to be the game which is coming, there is a chance that the leaked images are in fact a hoax, if not we are seriously hoping for some cross-platform play between PS3 and Vita – how about you?
