Tekken 7 Released for PS3 and Xbox 360; No PS4, Xbox One and PC Plans for Now
Tekken 7 has been finally revealed! The creator of Tekken, Katsuhiro Harada from Namco Bandai Games disclosed the new game from the Tekken franchise at EVO 2014.
Tekken is one of the most popular and most famous fighting games of all time. It was first released in 1994 by Japanese publisher Bandai Namco Games. The game has six major releases, and all of them were very popular.
The last major installment of the game was Tekken 6, released in 2007. In January this year, Harada said that they will announce two or three games during 2014. It looks like Tekken 7 is one of them.
At the beginning of the game, the player selects the avatar from characters, such as Devil, Angel, Ogre, Kuma, Panda, Alex and more. In the story mode, every character has its personal reasons to fight.
It seems that the release of Tekken 7 has leaked before Harada as people from BNG planned. A video of Harada speaking at the EVO 2014 about the game was leaked by an IGN news video and was later published by AOL. The video was removed later, but the official trailer is now available online.
“With Unreal Engine 4, we can rapidly achieve the visual quality expected on next-gen platforms and go beyond it,” says Harada in the leaked video. “Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to easily bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.”
Although Harada revealed that the game will be powered by Unreal Engine 4, he did not revealed on which platforms will the game be available. But gamers hope that the new installment of the game will be available on Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
Bandai Namco has released every Tekken game on arcade first, and the game was decoded to be available on the respective version of Sony PlayStation. So it would not be a big surprise if the game is initially released for arcades, and after that, ported to consoles.
