On September 18, 2010, at the Tougeki event, the game was officially announced by its producer Katsuhiro Harada. There was a demo of the game released on Tekken Hybrid called “Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Prologue” along with a HD remake of it’s predecessor, Tekken Tag Tournament, and a CGI film called: Tekken: Blood Vengeance. The demo consisted of the four main characters from the CGI movie; Devil Jin, Devil Kazuya, Ling Xiaoyu and Alisa Bosconovitch, all with new costumes from the movie.

On September 14, 2011, the game was released on the arcade system, then on February 16, 2012, an upgrade was announced at AOU 2012 under the guise of Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Unlimited (or Tekken Unlimited for short). Tekken Unlimited included 1vs1 fighting, and as an entirely new edition; 1vs2 battles along with balanced game play for any battle format. On March 27 it became available to play on arcade machines.

The story revolves around Heihachi Mishima. He is the head of the Mishima Zaibatsu and solidifies the organisations foundation. At the same time, however, he runs a top-secret research lab; trying to understand the ageing process and regain his youth. And after years of work his researchers finally completed the rejuvenation serum he sought. After drinking the serum Heihachi almost immediately began to change into his younger self, complete with a full head of black hair, and just as Heihachi was musing on how to reveal his new found power to the world he learned that the Tag Tournament was announced and decided to enter it with someone.

This game features the most game modes of any Tekken game, including: Fight Lab: a new mode where you use Combot to partake in activities, following instructions in order to complete different missions, helping you become a better fighter. Tekken Tunes: a mode allowing you to play or alter the music settings. Arcade Battle: where you can use any two characters and fight through stages until you reach the final boss at the end, and if you win, you’ll unlock a movie showing what happens to your team after they have won the Tag Tournament. Ghost Battle: where you fight through an endless wave of AI opponents. VS Battle: that lets you fight against your friends. Team Battle: where you can use up to eight fighters (two at a time) and battle against the same amount of AI opponents, or however many a friend chooses. Time Attack: here you have to play through arcade and finish it as fast as possible. Survival: fight an endless wave of opponents until your health fully depletes (regaining only a little bit of health between each match). And lastly… Practice mode: your basic training mode that allows you to hone your skills.

Along with all the characters from Tekken 6, and some returning characters from previous games, there will be DLC and console exclusive characters available for the game.
