Bandai Namco Entertainment have today announced that the latest, and possibly even final entry, into the Tekken franchise will be released on 2nd June 2017 for the Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC alongside a brand new cinematic styled gameplay trailer and other exciting details.
Tekken 7 is the latest entry into the long-time-standing arcade fighter and according to Bandai Namco Entertainment this console (and PC) release of Tekken 7 represents the culmination of the highest levels of fighting game development, even surpassing its arcade counterpart by offering additional balance and fine tuning, the inclusion of a dramatic story mode, more characters, and the implementation of online tournament modes that are sure to ignite the fighting spirit amongst gamers around the world.
Not only will Tekken 7 feature a cinematic storyline with some of the most loved, and most hated, characters in the Tekken universe but it will also see Akuma, from Capcom’s Street Fighter franchise, as a guest character. Of course that’s not all; as Bandai Namco Entertainment have also revealed the Collector’s Edition version of Tekken 7 – with it unveiling the rather amazing statue featuring Kazuya’s and Heihachi’s battle. This Collector’s Edition will also come with a copy of the game, a steelbook case, a soundtrack CD and a Season Pass code which unlocks access to additional content such as new characters, outfits and a ‘yet to be announced’ gameplay mode.
In addition to the Collector’s Edition reveal Bandai Namco Entertainment have also announced that anyone pre-ordering the game will receive access to Eliza, the vampire-based character from Tekken Revolution; and in addition to this Xbox One Digital pre-orders will also receive Tekken 6 – which has recently been added to the platforms backwards compatible system. Finally selective retailers, such as GAME, will offer a deluxe edition of the game which will contain both the base game and it’s Season Pass.
Tekken 7 will be released on the 2nd June 2017 within Europe for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Pre-order links for the standard game and collector’s edition bundle will be released shortly.
