Namco Bandai revealed this week that rapper Snoop Dogg has contributed a song to Tekken Tag Tournament 2, titled Knocc ‘Em Down. He'll also make an appearance as a NPC in The Snoop Dogg Stage (pre-order bonus).
Project director Katsuhiro Harada said: "We are big fans of Snoop Dogg and are proud to welcome him to the Tekken franchise. The content we created with Snoop Dogg and the song he made for the game allow Tekken fans to experience the legendary hip-hop star in a unique way and blend both Eastern and Western cultures like never before."
Snoop also commented: "I've been a fan of Tekken since the 90's so I'm excited to have made Knocc ‘Em Down for the game's soundtrack. The game's got a special stage featuring yours truly sittin' high above and watching the action take place."
He then added: "All you Tekken Tag Tournament 2 fans better get ready to experience kickin' ass on Tha Boss Dogg's stage with my new song Knocc 'Em Down banging in the background. What more could you ask for?"
Carlson Choi, VP of marketing at Namco, also contributed: "This is our first time partnering with Snoop Dogg and we couldn't be happier with the results. He brings something completely unique to the Tekken franchise."
