Namco recently released Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 but now a third version of the title is coming to the upcoming Wii U console with some exclusive content. These features were detailed recently at the Tokyo Game Show, currently going on in Japan.

Series producer Katsuhiro Harada told Game Informer that the entire game will be playable on the Wii U controller screen. He promises the game runs well on the smaller screen and features very little lag. While playing on the television, the tablet screen will have macro abilities mapped to the screen. Full move lists with the ability to perform a move at the tap of a finger will also be available. The Wii U Pro Controller will be compatable with the game as well for gamers who want a more traditional controller.

The most exciting addition however would have to be the Nintendo-specific features being included into the game. Combatants will have access to a variety of costumes based on popular Nintendo characters, such as Mario, Zelda, Samus, Bowser and Star Fox. Certain levels will also feature remixed Mario music. One of the biggest addition is the inclusion of a Mushroom Battle mode. In it, characters will fight on a field littered with various types of items from the Mario universe. Mushrooms will grow characters bigger, yellow mushrooms will make you “mega sized” and poison mushrooms will shrink them. Stars will give combatants a temporary shot of invulnerability.

Aside from these extra features, the game is said to be the same as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 version in every way. No content has been left out or changed, the presentation and graphics will be on par with the current generation and online play is still available. There’s no word on if the extra costumes will be specific to certain characters or if the Mushroom Battle mode will be playable online. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 releases on the Wii U on November 18.
