Tekken director states Wii U GamePad “pretty distracting” for genre

Tekken game director Katsuhiro Harada has discussed that use of the Wii U GamePad, and gazing between it and the television, could prove “pretty distracting for a fighting game.”

“Looking at the small screen and the big screen at the same time is pretty distracting for a fighting game,” Harada explained to Eurogamer.

“So we’re thinking of making it useful as a way of having shortcuts. Or, by making progressing through the game more convenient. Or by playing alone on the GamePad screen.”

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is confirmed to release during the Wii U’s four-month launch window.
