Tekken 7 will launch for PS4, Xbox One and PC on June 2, 2017, Bandai Namco has confirmed.
The long-awaited fighter was originally scheduled for an early 2017 release, but it seems it’s been pushed back a little bit.
Tekken 7 will feature new and familiar faces alongside new stages, costumes and game modes. Street Fighter’s Akuma will also feature as a guest character.
Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Tekken 7 sets a new standard in graphics quality for the series, featuring highly detailed characters and dynamic environments. The home version also features an in-depth story mode that lets players fully experience the canon storyline. Master the skills of classic characters as well as new fighters such as Kazumi Mishima, Claudio, Josie, Shaheen, Katarina, Lucky Chloe, Gigas, and more!
Bandai Namco confirmed the release date alongside a new trailer, showcasing the game’s narrative and characters with some truly banging music.
Producer Katsuhiro Harada also announced that Tekken 7 will get an all-new story mode that transitions seamlessly between cinematics and gameplay. Today’s trailer for Tekken 7 shows Heihachi Mishima battling Street Fighter mainstay Akuma — who was added in the arcade version of Tekken 7: Fated Retribution.
Harada also announced that Bandai Namco will be giving Xbox One owners a free copy of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 during E3 week, which is supported through Xbox 360 backward compatibility.
Eliza has been confirmed as a pre-order bonus on all platforms, having made her last appearance in Tekken Revolution on PS3.
The Tekken 7 season pass will contain new playable characters, stages and a mystery game mode. Owners also gain access to 35 new cosmetic items.
PS4 owners have a slew of exclusive content to look forward to, including Jukebox Mode. This allows you to assemble playlists of songs from previous entries and listen to them while fighting. There are also exclusive costumes to be had on Sony’s platform.
