The gameplay in Tekken 2 is much like its predecessor, with a few additions. It continues to use 2D backgrounds in its stages, features an infinite playing field, and uses a fighting system that utilizes four buttons: left punch, right punch, left kick, and right kick. Distinct additions included attack reversals for some characters, back throws, throw escapes, "auto-guard" where a player's character can block most frontal attacks whilst standing still (high and mid attacks only) or crouching (low attacks only), and a sidestep unique to one character (Kazuya Mishima). Tackles also were modified to inflict damage when running from a greater distance.
