never cared for Tekken and too bad they dropped their in-house engine to use a generic piece of trash that most devs will be using this gen.

The announcement was supposed to be during Evo, so I have no idea how IGN got ahold of this so fast.

[edit: Namco were testing the projector for the footage they will show in a couple of hours and many people saw the logo...]

Last time I played Tekken was on PSP, and it was a pretty good game.

But there are other fighting games I like more.

Namco's in-house engine for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is now three years old, so it makes sense that they'd want to update to a newer engine.

#12 Posted by Demonjoe93 (9598 posts) -

Sweet, I love Tekken.

#13 Posted by Mr-Kutaragi (1962 posts) -

Tekken 5 was amazing game. Little interest after that game, Tekken Tag 2 suppose to be good.

What engine they using before this?

#14 Edited by nintendoboy16 (26733 posts) -

The new characters better not disappoint (looking at you, MK X). Then again, IF my main man Lei stays in, not like it'll matter to me much, the same way with Raiden in MK X.

Was never a fan of fighting games but i shall keep my eye on this one.

#19 Posted by lonewolf604 (8522 posts) -

It better not have shitty Tekken 6 load times, and difficult bosses.

#20 Posted by LegatoSkyheart (25374 posts) -

I sure hope it comes to WiiU! HAHAHAHAHAHA fat chance. PS3, PS4, and Xbox One for sure.

Tekken 3 is still the best.

You seem to care a lot about a genre you apparently have no interest in, since you bothered to post in this thread.

There's already a Tekken game on Wii U, so who knows? I wouldn't completely rule it out yet.

#37 Posted by DocSanchez (1604 posts) -

Platforms have yet to be announced: Nintendo fans speculate it might come out on wii u, are receptive to the idea and hopeful.

Doesn't get announced for wii u: Nintendo fans claim they never wanted it in the first place and the series sucks.

I'll second that!

Yeah, OR... They'll be too busy playing Smash Bros this winter to care either way.

Hey, I love Tekken to pieces, but I don't think I'd personally choose it over Smash. That's just me though. I'm certainly not speaking for every single person who owns a Wii U.

#42 Posted by Articuno76 (18823 posts) -

The Japanese have been struggling for years now because of their reliance on proprietary tech (which has become quickly outdated) and inability to adapt (which is kinda necessary when you are designing games for multiple systems). Capcom's MT Framework notwithstanding, that is. So for Japanese devs to adopt time/resource saving game engines is a good idea.

@LegatoSkyheart: Not even PS3, UE4 only runs on Xbone/PS4/PC consoles.

It's using UE4. I doubt it's coming to PS3 either.

Tekken 4 is the best tekken.

#47 Posted by Boddicker (2745 posts) -

I used to live, breathe, and eat Tekken starting with 3.

I'll buy it if they trim down the roster. Tekken has become the poster child for a bloated roster, and with all the similar movesets that come with that.

Unreal Engine 4 can run on Wii U. It's just up to game developers to port it. [Source]

Isn't Tekken a japanese series? Why the fuck are they using western recourses? I thought that was against the rules? :P
