14/06/2016 Leave a comment
Bandai Namco Entertainment, alongside series creator Harada Tekken, have remained relatively quiet about Tekken 7’s home console release however during yesterday’s Microsoft E3 Media Briefing a brand new cinematic styled gameplay trailer was released alongside confirmation that Tekken 7 would be coming to the Xbox One alongside the previously confirmed PS4 and PC platforms.
As later explained in a press release sent out by Bandai Namco Entertainment Tekken 7 is the result of 20-years worth of hardwork and it will see a series of enhancements, reworks and new features together implemented into the game alongside the biggest move-set to date. It’s not just the mechanics of the game that will be changed either; as thanks to the Unreal Engine 4 players can expect a graphical overhaul to the character designs and layouts that everyone should be familiar with.
Mechanical aspects aside Tekken 7 will feature over 30 playable characters, some of which are brand new to the franchise, as well as a special guest appearence by Akuma who, as revealed in this new gameplay trailer, has an impact on the overall storyline of the game. A story which, judging from the text, should end the fight between Heihachi and Kazuya as well as all of those involved.
Tekken 7 looks to offer the best Tekken experience to date and to celebrate the arrival of this new trailer, and confirmation that Tekken 7 will be released onto the Xbox One; Bandai Namco Entertainment have teamed-up with Microsoft to allow all Xbox LIVE Gold users to download Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for FREE until the 21st June 2016. It’s a nice gesture and if you own an Xbox 360 (or even Xbox One as the game has been made backwards compatible) then I would suggest doing it.
For the time being Tekken 7 will be released early next year onto the Xbox One, PS4 and PC with more details to be revealed in the near future. For the time being at least you can check out the latest trailer below which made it’s debut at E3 2016.
