New network code handles as much as 3 to 5 times the data
Those who have being seeking a big improvement in the online performance of fighting games will be excited to learn of the improvements made in Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
According to Katsuhiro Harada, the new netcode for network online play has undergone a massive overhaul, and the new code (using its improved compression) can handle three to five times as much data as the netcode used in Street Fighter IV, which improves performance.
According to Harada, the new netcode uses code from Soul Caliber V in combination with a number of other tweaks and improvements to deliver a much better online playing experience. It is expected that players will be very surprised with the improvements that have been made.
Planned for release in September 2012, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is on track for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
