Tekken 7 has been having its glory day in the hot sun in arcades, but now it has been revealed that the game is officially coming to home consoles. The news was revealed during the Paris Games Week, where more info regarding the game was revealed.
Here’s what series producer Katsuhiro Harada said regarding the game:
“When the game makes the leap from arcades to console, it will be the most complete and enhanced version up to date. We also have special content in the works that’s sure to please PlayStation fans.”
Check out the announcement trailer for Tekken 7 below.
We’ve known about the fighting crossover of the Tekken and Street Fighter franchises called Tekken X Street Fighter for some time now, but actual updates regarding the game have been few and far between. In fact, updates have been so infrequent that it actually made some people begin to wonder if the game was happening at all.
However, Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada has reassured everyone that the game is still coming out. Here’s what he said in an interview with Famitsu (translated by Siliconera):
“The fact of the matter is that we’re at a pretty far stage into its development. The character lineup has been decided upon since a very long time ago, and we’ve already finished the polygon models, moves, and systems.”
As for when the game will eventually come out, that question is still up in the air considering that both fighting series have new games in the works. One would expect it to release after the releases of Tekken 7 and Street Fighter V, as a way of capitalizing on the releases of both games. I guess we’ll just have to wait for more information on that, though.
It was revealed recently that Tekken 7 will be a part of this year’s EVO tournament, despite the game still not having a release outside of Japan.
However, the Tekken Facebook page has just announced releases for the arcade game in select arcades across the USA. Better late than never, I suppose, though it seems kind of weird that gamers won’t be able to practice before competing in the tournament.
Scroll down for the list of arcades that Tekken 7 will be making a trip to soon.
