"Meet Nina. Blonde, beautiful - the girl next door. That is, if you live next door to a 22-year old paid assassin. This Irish Akido [!] expert will take out anyone - from a helpless lackey to a head-of-state. It's a matter of money. It's a matter of pride. That's why she's joined 23 of the world's greatest fighters vying for the title in Tekken 2. With three new fighting modes. 23 new stages. Brand new 3D animations, and more moves and combos than any game on Earth. Nina Williams wants to prove to the world she can break hearts and bones. Guess blondes really do have more fun."

  1. 0_0 Why...why have I never seen this before? This is amazing!

    Wish Namco (and game devs in general) still put this much thought into their ad campaigns. Not that TTT2's hype train was bad per se, but just thumping us over the head with a 3-word catchphrase that doesn't mean much of anything isn't quite as impactful as stuff like this.
