While Tekken 2 was in development, work had begun on creating a home version of their 1994 arcade hit, Tekken, using the brand new Sony PlayStation console. To enhance the game from its arcade counterpart, all boss characters were made playable in the console version. Because the boss characters were originally clones, barely changed from the eight selectable characters of Tekken, Namco felt the home version could do with some new moves exclusive to the newly playable boss characters. These moves were back-ported from Tekken 2, which was still in prototype stages.
