Gameplay[edit]

Gameplay in Tekken Tag Tournament HD was virtually unchanged from the original game, however there was a bump in visual quality as the aspect ratio was changed to fit 16:9, and ran in full 1080p HD, running at 60 frames per second.

Plot[edit]

Both Tekken Tag Tournament and its sequel are non-canon entries of the series, however all characters have a real-time ending shown over the credits, for the first character chosen when selecting the two fighters. Unknown's ending, is a FMV.
