Tekken 2 is a 3D fighting game developed and released by Namco for arcades (running the PS1-based Namco System 11 hardware) in August 1995. A console port was released for the Sony PlayStation on March 1996 (in Japan), August 1996 (in North America), and October 1996 (in Europe).

Set two years after the events of the original Tekken (where Kazuya Mishima defeats his father Heihachi in the first King of Iron Fist Tournament and becomes the new CEO of the Mishima Zaibatsu), the cold and ruthless Kazuya forms another King of Iron Fist Tournament to draw out and rid his enemies (namely Heihachi) once and for all.


The game includes 10 playable characters and 14 hidden opponents (15 if couting Kazuya's "Devil" form as a unique character), bringing the roster to 24/25 characters. Unlike the previous game, all characters can be used in the Arcade version (after unlocking them with cheat codes). In the console versions, characters can only be unlocked after certain conditions.

In the arcade version, the operator can decide whether to have Jun or Baek enabled for the default roster (with the other character remaining hidden). The console version only has Jun enabled from the start.
