Tekken is a long running video game series that revolves around besting your opponent in 3D combat. A true rival to the likes of Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat, Tekken has reached a new iteration with Tekken 7. If you live in either South Korea or Japan, it is very likely that you have already experienced the game since its arcade version was released two years ago. For the console and PC players out there, developer Bandai Namco recently released fresh details on when the game can be expected.
June 2nd is the fateful day on which eager fans get to revisit the series for a fresh run. Tekken 7: Fated Retribution is an update released of Tekken 7.
Those that pre-order the game can get more out of the experience thanks to the unique bonuses that come with it. For starters, if you dig Eliza from Tekken Revolution, you’re in luck: Pre-order the game and you get her as a bonus playable character to add to the list of over 30 characters available in-game.
Additionally, you will be able to couple the new release with some vintage Tekken 6 gameplay. The title has been released for Xbox 360 but through the Backwards Compatibility program, you’ll get a free game for your Xbox One.
There are quite a few fighting video games coming out this year, such as Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite or the DC Comics-based Injustice 2. No word yet about a new Mortal Kombat but with all the hype surrounding the release of the new Tekken title, who knows if it will be missed. Since June 2nd is a couple months away, you can either wait it out or play the game’s arcade version — if you happen to live in South Korea or Japan, that is!
