Tekken 7 official, prepped for next-gen consoles

Within the next few days we’re going to see a whole bunch of details on the return of one of the original 3D fighting games: Tekken 7. This game will feature a far longer trailer than what you’re about to see during San Diego Comic Con - for now, courage!

This trailer features to the return of a classic character which you’ll have to gain an appreciation for in your own viewing. Shadow of the beast, questioning Kazuya - the original shadow warriors bring back the heat.

There’s word that The Final Battle is revealed ever-so-slightly differently between the above English trailer and the Japanese trailer below. You can be the judge of that.

While we know precious little about this game or its contents, of one thing we can be sure: this game will not be made for last-gen consoles. Unreal Engine 4 is made for systems at least as new as the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, so Bandai Namco isn’t fooling around with those systems of the past.

Game Director / Chief Producer of Tekken (now and for the past 20 years having worked on the series) will be Katsuhiro Harada. This man is part of Namco Bandai as well as 765 Production, and will be taking the lead on this project. This was announced for the first time officially this week at EVO 2014.

Harada will be appearing at a "FIGHTING GAME PANEL", as he calls it, at SDCC this next week. This will take place on Friday July 25, 2014 12:00pm - 1:00pm Pacific Time. According to the image you’re seeing above taken by Harada, he’s already arrived. It’s time!
