Player can also invite a fellow player off their list of PSN or Xbox Live friends to a private session where they can battle freely without penalty of demotion or number of losses increasing. An invitation is received via message. Or simply, the player can go to "Confirm Invitation" and formally accept, as long as the request has not expired.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
As of Tekken Tag Tournament 2, one now has the chance to go into a manual practice session discreetly until a player connection is received. The CPU is Mokujin.
The addition of team names and P1, P2 team battles have been added for a better and more personalized experience. Also, after each online battle, there is now a "Tekken Channel" section that lets the player review their recent battle replays or even replays their friends send to them. There is a limit to how many replays can be saved without deleting the oldest at the bottom of the list.
