Tekken and Soul Calibur In The Puddle!

If you’re a Tekken or Soul Calibur fan, then drop whatever you’re doing- Yes, including that set of antique China- and head on over to Avoiding The Puddle.com and listen to their Episode 14 Podcast. Why? Well, ’cause they’ve got several very special guests on board instead of the usual gamer chatting… none other than Katsuhiro Harada, Michael Murray and Daishi Odashima of Namco-Bandai.

The podcast is about an hour long and basically has ATP’s Aris grilling his guests on stuff about the Tekken series, post-mortems about past console ports and other hardcore game stuff. They only get to the newer games- Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Soul Calibur– in the last 20 minutes or so, and it’s mostly TTT2 and very little Calibur.

• The podcast confirms ALL characters from Tekken 6 WILL be back in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

• Also, fans of Baek and Wang (who were in dire straits at the end of Tekken 6) can rest easy- they will apparently return (not just in Tekken Tag 2, but in future canon Tekkens).

• Another tidbit, as of right now Tekken Tag 2 may retain the original system of the first Tekken Tag that requires you to keep both of your characters alive in a round (rather than the elimination-type of team play in KOF or the Capcom VS games).

• As for Soul Calibur, this was mostly just new SC producer Daishi Odashima getting introduced, and some talk about his background… really nothing about the game itself, which is probably still in planning stages at this point. But we may expect Hilde to get nerfed… maybe.

Overall, it’s a pretty good hour of listening if you fancy yourself a fan of these fighting titles. So head on over here now to listen to the whole show.
