Tekken Updates: Tekken 3D Prime Edition Webpage Up, TTT2 Boss Reveal Coming?

The Tekken gang’s coming to the 3DS, in case you didn’t know.

Tekken Official has just added a new page for the latest upcoming Tekken, Tekken 3D Prime Edition. There’s nothing much there yet save a nifty montage of character art from Tekken 6 and still a big ad for the Tekken Blood Vengeance movie pack-in. Famitsu just posted an article for the game with some character bios for the fighters appearing in their featured screenshots. The thing about Tekken 3D- depending on the individual screen shot, it can either look quite impressive and slick, or very pixelly and iffy. Still, Tekken has always been about beauty in motion, not in stills…

On another topic, there’s a little bit of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 talk on arcade site ariesu, which has this intriguing translated text which seems to refer to TTT2′s end boss.

Famitsu arcade game channel is “Tekken Tag Tournament 2″ is the follow-up. Introducing the boss appearing in single play.
1 boss Mishima parents. Ogre is to appear next. Additionally the emergence of the next semi-Kazama. The aura of mystery and black from the feet of her slump to defeat Kazama …?

UPDATED: Though initially I thought that ’1 boss Mishima parents’ was the Final Boss, this may instead refer to a Mishima Parent-and-Child Tag Team… which may be one of three possibilities- Jinpachi and Heihachi, Heihachi and Kazuya or Kazuya and Jin. Afterwards, Ogre is faced, then Jun Kazama– which is odd to me; will you face them separately, not as a team? Finally, after Jun is defeated, some sort of black mist or energy appears at her feet(?) while she’s sprawled on the ground… perhaps heralding the appearance of the actual Final Boss. I GOT IT! THOSE FREAKIN’ WEIRD SHOES OF HERS ARE THE BOSS…!

From Harada’s Twitter we can confirm that Jun herself is NOT the End Boss (known this for some time actually), and that the boss will ‘look like human’ (Harada’s exact words). No beam attacks though, so it won’t be something like Devil Kaz or Devil Jin. Who or what will it be? As of now, I have no freakin’ idea, but this is really intriguing. It shouldn’t be too long before we find out though, given the impending release of the game in Japanese arcades next month. More as we get it then!
