Game Introduction

Two years after winning "The King of Iron Fist Tournament" Kazuya Mishima decides to hold a second tournament in an attempt to finish off his father, Heihachi Mishima. Players choose from 23 different characters and attempt to win the tournament. After beating seven other fighters you face your own character specific sub-boss in the eighth stage, then go on to fight Kazuya and the devil that is possesing him. All of the fighters have a reason for entering the second contest. Some, like Paul and King, are entering again after failing to win the first tounament. Others, like Michelle and Jun, want to stop Kazuya's evil.

Game Play

A basic 3-D fighting game. Players use standard moves such as throws and special kicks to deplete their opponent's life bar. Experienced players can use techniques such as juggle combos.
