Namco Bandai have announced that Snoop Dogg will be found in http://www.trueachievements.com/Tekken-Tag-Tournament-2....htm
as a non-playable character. As well as making an exclusive new song for the game, 'Knocc 'Em Down', those who pre-order the game will also get a new arena, 'The Snoop Dogg Stage' which features the man himself watching over the fighters in addition to their other pre-order bonuses.
Katsuhiro Harada, TEKKEN Project Director at NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc, had this to say about this unexpected move:
We are big fans of Snoop Dogg and are proud to welcome him to the TEKKEN franchise. The content we created with Snoop Dogg and the song he made for the game allow TEKKEN fans to experience the legendary hip-hop star in a unique way and blend both Eastern and Western cultures like never before.
Snoop Dogg himself added:
I've been a fan of TEKKEN since the 90's so I’m excited to have made KNOCC ‘EM DOWN for the game’s soundtrack. The game's got a special stage featuring yours truly sittin’ high above and watching the action take place. All you TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 fans better get ready to experience kickin' ass on Tha Boss Dogg's stage with my new song KNOCC ‘EM DOWN banging in the background. What more could you ask for?
A new trailer for the game was also released at E3:
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
is due to release on September 11th in North America and September 14th in Europe.
