World Tekken Federation, an online social community for Tekken players, will launch alongside Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on September 14, Namco Bandai has announced.

WTF promises Tekken players a social community platform to track personal statistics against the world, create and manage teams with friends, compete in online events and discuss strategies with a level of unparalleled detail in the fighting game genre.

"World Tekken Federation is a premium service that aims to connect players to the Tekken worldwide community in a way never before seen with a fighting game," said Carlson Choi, vice president of marketing for Namco Bandai Games America Inc. "Being able to unite the entire Tekken global community is an incredibly exciting initiative that will help extend the competitive nature of the series well past Tekken Tag Tournament 2's launch date."
