Taking a page from the Elite service found in Call of Duty, Namco Bandai has announced a new premium service called “World Tekken Federation” to be available for the launch of Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

Here is the press release:


The World Tekken Federation will expand the TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 experience through the following key fundamentals:

Scout: The World Tekken Federation gives the vast TEKKEN community a centralized hub for all things TEKKEN. Participate in the forums to discuss character strategies, move sets and gain insightful knowledge from the community. Connect with TEKKEN players of all skill levels to join or create teams and track their personal or team stats against other teams as they make their way through the leaderboards. Team leaders will be able to recruit rising competitors in the community to create an all-star roster of players.

Train: The World Tekken Federation gives players access to a wealth of fighter stats to help improve their chances of defeating their foes in the King of Iron Fist arena. Players will be able to view and analyze their player card to gain insightful metrics pertaining to their entire battle history. Find out which character tag-team combinations work best, and which characters need more time with TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2’s robust training mode known as the Fight Lab. Players will also be able to extract valuable information about their opponents for the next time they meet in the ring.

The World Tekken Federation provides fans a unique and exciting experience by providing players a constant connection to TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 that they can access through any online connected device. Sign up for exclusive community events, gain exclusive World Tekken Federation achievements, participate in the forums or evaluate detailed player statistics at home, on the way to work, or anywhere in between.

The World Tekken Federation will be available in Europe and Australasia coinciding with the launch of TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 on September, 14th.

I am a big fan of the Tekken series, but do not believe I would take part in this myself.  Like the Call of Duty series, I enjoy the online competition as a diversion, and I do not feel particularly driven to dominate that scene.  Truth be told, I tend to spend most of my time with the Tekken games in offline modes.  What about you?  Have any of you tried one of these premium services before like Call of Duty Elite?  Do you think it is just as applicable to a fighting game?

In the meantime, here is a new cinematic trailer for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 as well:

  • I've never tried one of these subscription services, but this is not one I'm interested in trying out. I'm not a very competitive fighting game person.

    Someone needs to release a Chess game with a proper subscription service, tournaments and all that 😛

  • LOL – while that probably wouldn't have the initial install base of something like Tekken, I can see it as much more practical. But Chess is so much more about strategy, while even the best fighting games only are part strategy and heavily reflex based.
