The Biggest PS4 Games to Play in 2017
Created by GameSpot Staff on
Tekken 7 has been in Japanese arcades since March 2015, but it has yet to land on home gaming systems. That should change in late Q1 to early Q2 in 2017 when the game hits PC and console, which also marks the series’ first entry on PC.
One element to the Tekken formula that we know is getting revamped is the story mode. In previews and interviews, lead developer Katsuhiro Harada emphasized that Tekken 7 will have a cinematic look and feel that seamlessly blends into the fighting sequences. Some situations will pit players in matches with special conditions to portray the story’s theatrics. And Street Fighter regular Akuma is said to be integral to Tekken's story mode in some way.
Tekken has been a staple of the competitive fighting game scene and tournaments around the world have already taken place for Tekken 7. Bandai Namco sponsors its own King of the Iron Fist Tournament and the game has been featured at Evo since 2015. The audience and competition may grow even larger once the game hits shelves in the coming year.
