Tekken 7 announced at Paris Games Week

The Mishima chapter will end on a dark note...

Do you remember the ’90s, when 3D was an incredible technical leap forward in video games? If you do, then you know that Tekken, with its ground breaking 32-bit graphics engine and CD quality audio, was THE fighting game to play. And what about now, you ask? Now it’s going to be even more obvious. Feast your eyes on this brand new trailer before we go further:

The love story between PlayStation and Tekken started in 1995 and is currently at its ninth installment (can you name them all?) with the announcement of Tekken 7. Developed by the Tekken Team at Bandai Namco Entertainment in Japan, the game is developed under the supervision of Katsuhiro Harada, the very same person who has been working on the series for 20 years!

Tekken 7 makes use of the acclaimed Unreal Engine 4 engine for the first time in the series, offering a true new-gen experience. We literally drooled over the Arcade version, and now it’s coming to your home!

In addition to the great graphics, as demonstrated in this awesome announcement trailer, many new characters will join the fight.

One specific new challenger will join the character roster in the form of Kazumi Mishima. The supposedly killed wife of the main protagonist of the series, Heihachi Mishima, is also the mother of Kazuya Mishima. Her powers will be key to understand the feud between Heihachi Mishima, his son Kazuya Mishima and his grandson Jin Kazama. The conclusion of the Mishima clan saga is sure to be dark, but also sweet for early PlayStation fans as the origins of the Devil Gene, among other Tekken mysteries, will finally be unveiled.


More information about the character roster and game mechanics will be unveiled over the next months, stay tuned!

Get ready for the next battle with the upcoming Tekken 7 game!

  • It’s awesome to see Tekken 7 finally coming to PS4. Was starting to think it would stay in the Arcades~

    • You must be new to the Tekken series then. There’s not one Tekken game Harada had exclusively for the Arcades.

  • ‘then you know that Tekken, with its ground breaking 32-bit graphics engine and CD quality audio, was THE fighting game to play. ‘

    Nope. Tekken looked awful. PS1 era 3D didn’t start getting decent til much later in it’s life. The blocky polygonal characters, muddy palette and sluggish controls didn’t impress me at all and I went right back to Street Fighter II which is still a better fighting game than Tekken ever was.

    Still never understood why pretty much every hit results in an explosion of sorts

  • By “More information about the character roster” I understand “there will be more characters than in the arcade version”. And I’m totally okay with that.

  • Can’t wait for this game! Also I was HUGELY surprised when they announced this game is also coming to Playstation VR during the Paris Games Week Conference. Very curious to see how this new VR tech will be incorporated into this legendary fighting series!

  • VR support – Awesome.

    But this mean I’m going kick my poor tv over ………

    ……. But who needs a tv when you have VR :)

  • When it will be available to pre-order or anything.?!… Can’t wait
