Tekken 7 Story Details Revealed Alongside New Character Trailer


The seventh instalment into Tekken franchise continues to be a mysterious entry into the long-running-arcade-franchise; and while numerous characters have been revealed, an arcade cabinets scattered across the globe, no-one really knows what to expect from the games highly anticipated storymode. Well fortunately for us Bandai Namco Entertainment have finally shed some light on what to expect; and it sounds pretty exciting.

According to the publisher Tekken 7 will feature an in-depth narrative driven story mode that will see players take control of the Mishimas, such as Heihachi, Kazuya and Jin, through a series of cinematic fights and cut-scenes. Interestingly enough the Mishima clan isn’t the only focal point of the story as players can also expect to take control of Claudio Serafino, and his group of exorcists; or so the details provided by Bandai Namco Entertainment suggest.

Tekken 7’s engaging story mode is composed of several hours of gameplay (including side stories that players can unlock progressively). Not only can you play as the Mishimas in Story Mode, but there are other arcs that involve fighters outside of the Mishima clan, such as Claudio Serafino, and his group of exorcists.

The Archers of Sirius are a group of exorcists who have been banishing supernatural entities from this world since ancient times. A highly secretive organization, its existence is unknown to the public. Although it is not known how their existence was revealed, the Archers of Sirius were suddenly approached by the Mishima Zaibatsu. They were heavy-handedly requested by the Mishima Zaibatsu to join their conglomerate, but naturally refused. This did not stop the persistent pressure from Mishima Zaibatsu, however.

Eventually, the news of this approach from the Mishima Zaibatsu reached the de facto leader of the Archers of Sirius, Claudio Serafino. Determined to uncover the motives behind the Mishima Zaibatsu’s actions, Claudio begins to investigate the powerful conglomerate.

In addition to the new story related details Bandai Namco Entertainment made it’s presence known at Gamescom by unveiling a brand new character trailer; this time introducing Lee Chaolan and his alter ego Violet – both of which whom made their debut appearence in Tekken 2 as secret unlockable characters and have only recently made their reappaearence within the Tekken franchise.

Lee Chaolan was adopted by Heihachi Mishima, meant to be a rival to his son Kazuya. As Kazuya’s adopted brother, Lee was given the same education and upbringing fitting of the Mishima clan. After being expelled from the Mishima Zaibatsu for reasons unknown, Lee founded Violet Systems, a tech company specializing in development on humanoid robotics, and was quite successful.

Shortly after, the world became embroiled in conflict between the Mishima Zaibatsu, headed by Heihachi Mishima, and the G Corporation, secretly controlled by Kazuya Mishima. As most of the world was cautiously watching and trying to decide which side would be most beneficial to support, Lee had his own plans, as he had nothing but extreme hatred for both Heihachi and Kazuya. One method he choose to exact his revenge on the father and son was to covertly support Lars Alexandersson, who had turned on the Mishima Zaibatsu, but this was only the beginning of what he had in store for the Mishimas.

Tekken 7 is currently scheduled for release onto the Xbox One, PS4 and PC during early 2017; but more concrete release details will be unveiled in due time.
