Tekken 7 revealed

1 min read


Over at the EVO 2014 tournament that took place over the weekend, Tekken Producer Katsuhiro Harada took the stage to officially announce the game after AOL cocked up an embargo and published an IGN video confirming the game. “The first thought that came into my head was ‘It must have been Ono,’” Harada joked, referring to rival Street Fighter boss workhorse and all-around nice guy Yoshinori Ono.

According to Harada (via VG247), Harada had had no intention of showing off Tekken 7 at EVO, with the leak forcing him to quickly whip up a trailer in his hotel room. Harada then asked the fans in attendance to make some noise, so that he could at least placate his bosses who are going to have some questions for the longtime producer. Here’s the trailer:

Tekken 7 will be built on the Unreal Engine 4 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 “With Unreal Engine 4, we can rapidly achieve visual quality expected on next-gen platforms and go beyond it,” Harada said at EVO.

Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it also allows us to bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.

Which most likely means that you’ll be getting some iron-fisted action on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as well. If you’ve never played Tekken, then I am absolutely and utterly confused. Still, while I scratch my head, just know that this is a game series that has been knocking around since the PlayStation One days, with the most recent entry in the core series being released in 2009.

Expect more details at the San Diego Comic Con later this month on what is up with that game.

    What’s a Tekken? A poorly acted chinese remake of some Liam Neeson movie, with a dodgy chinese lookalike?

    Heihachi! It’s been too long! Hopefully this washes away the stench of Tekken X Street Fighter.

      The last Tekken I played was 4, and I bought it in Spain…. That is years ago when my parents still paid for my holidays!!!

        I was wondering if Tekken was still alive or not. Along with MK X that’s two I’m gonna buy.

      I have a Tekken for my PS3, no idea which it is though, but it doesn’t quite have the appeal it used to when I was a kid.

    Interestingly, the developer has already hinted at other platforms besides Xbox and PS. I suspect this game could be coming to Android.
