Tekken 7 is a fighting game developed and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment, the ninth installment in the Tekken series, and the very first one to use the Unreal Engine.
The game was released as a public video game in Japan on February 18, 2015, followed by another unfinished release on March 18, 2015. Recently, the developer finally announced the game would be released as a home video game, confirming that it will be available for the PlayStation 4 and sport support for PlayStation VR. The developer is also preparing to release an updated version of the game, Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, which will arrive in Japan in July 2016. The new version of the game will come with new costumes, items, characters, and stages.
Bandai Namco Entertainment officially announced that Tekken 7 would be released for Sony’s PlayStation 4, but rumors suggest it will also come out for Microsoft’s Xbox One and Windows PC. Rumors say that a Bandai-Namco representative said this, but the company itself hasn’t commented.
There are also reports which say that some people have seen pre-order boxes of the game for Xbox One at their local video games stores. However, since the developer hasn’t confirmed anything, we should take these reports with a grain of salt. We think the developer would make a pretty good move by releasing Tekken 7 for Xbox One and Windows PC, especially if it will also bring cross-platform functionality.
What are your thoughts about Tekken 7? Will you play it on your PlayStation 4 once it’s released?
