The Wii U version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 features exclusive costumes based on Nintendo characters for the fighters. There's a total of 12 different costumes, including one based on Captain Falcon from the F-Zero series (see here for other series). It's worn by Bruce, Bryan, Marduk, and Raven, though Marduk doesn't wear the upper part of the clothes, and fights barechested. Many details of the costume, such as the scarf, shoulder pad and belt, mean that this costume is actually based on Falcon's incarnation from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It might be argued that this costume was actually meant to reference Falcon as a fighter from the Super Smash Bros. series, rather than the protagonist from the F-Zero series.


In an agreement between Nintendo and Bandai Namco, Nintendo-exclusive content was included in the game to create a double way marketing, with the game promoting the console and vice versa.
