The mysterious and beautiful Angel is back and better (barefoot) than ever before!
Here's a pretty awesome development for Tekken Tag Tournament 2, whose console port (PS3, Xbox360) is slated for September. Producer Katsuhiro Harada has been saying that the home version will include many more characters not seen in the arcade version (pushing the number of selectables to well over 50). Well, it seems that several of these Extra Fighters have been teasingly revealed today, and one of them, thankfully, is a barefoot babe!
That babe is none other than Angel, the mysterious, well, angelic being that first made her appearance waaaaay back in Tekken 2, a 'good' version to Devil who seems to be continually vying for Kazuya Mishima's soul. Well, the last time we saw Angel was in the first Tekken Tag Tournament. Well, both of her previous appearances didn't really get me excited since she was basically just a Kaz clone, and she wore sandals as well. Well, for some reason- perhaps the Tekken Team Character Designer FINALLY was inspired by awesomeness- Angel's back and she has thankfully left her old sandals behind. And what can I say about her lovely, bare feet in the artwork above other than they look... heavenly? Mmmm... her toes look so cute!
Well, all I can say is WOW! At least we now have another fully-barefoot babe (by default) in TTT2. Of course, even though I am generally disappointed in TTT2 (Arcade) due to the lack of any barefoot customization for any of the females (aside from hakama-and-instep guard customs for Jun and Asuka), it's not like the game's totally barren. Yes, there's Christie Monteiro, but sadly I just don't find her that appealing in her default outfit (all her other costumes don't have her barefoot). Then there's barefoot and naked-except-for-black-goo Unknown, whom I assume will be playable in the home version. But while Unknown is sexy, I do prefer my babe's feet to be clean and kissable... which Angel's surely are!
All I can hope for is that the game eventually adds barefoot customizations on console, but even so, I guess with Unknown and now Angel I think TTT2 is something to look forward to. Till September, I'll be dreaming of Angel's heavenly toes and soles then...
