Glancing between screens while playing Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on Wii U is "distracting" while playing fighting games, series boss Katsuhiro Harada has told Eurogamer.
Tag Tournament 2 on Wii U, due for release sometime during the console's four-month launch window, will likely not use the GamePad touchscreen for complicated manoeuvres.
The GamePad will instead be utilised in a simpler fashion.
"Looking at the small screen and the big screen at the same time is pretty distracting for a fighting game," Harada explained. "So we're thinking of making it useful as a way of having shortcuts.
"Or, by making progressing through the game more convenient. Or by playing alone on the GamePad screen."
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 releases first for standard PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 controllers on 14th September. It's one of two titles from Namco for Nintendo's new hardware, alongside mad arcade port Tank! Tank! Tank!
