This seems like old news given that we already knew that the game was coming to home consoles and there has already been footage of people playing the game on the PS4 but Bandai Namco made it official during Sony’s press conference at the Paris Games Week that Tekken 7 is coming to home consoles.
In addition to this, Gematsu is reporting that the game will have PlayStation VR support, confirmed by Tekken 7 producer Katsuhiro Harada. The news was accompanied by the console announcement trailer, which you can view below.
Eric Hartness, vice president of marketing at Bandai Namco Entertainment America commented about the game coming to home consoles, which has been the worst kept secret next to Michael Jackson being black, stating…
“The TEKKEN series is not only a cornerstone series in BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.’s illustrious line-up of game franchises; it has also been a foundational game in the fighting game tournament community for over two decades.”
“TEKKEN 7 promises to deliver an uncompromising fighting game experience that will deliver groundbreaking graphics, animation, and tournament style gameplay. Fighting game tournament players should be on notice as we’re setting our sights on lighting up the tournament scene with the hardest hitting TEKKEN game ever.”
According to Power-up Gaming the PS4 rendition of the game will have exclusive content. What kind? No one knows right now.
Tekken 7 recently made an appearance at EVO this past year running on the arcade versions of the game, which is currently out and available at select locations in Japan.
This is the first game in the series running on the Unreal Engine 4. Epic accidentally revealed that the game was coming to home consoles and PC a year before Bandai Namco made the announcement. But I mean, come on… who didn’t see this coming? Well, not counting blind, deaf gamers who have no hands. But still, just about everyone else knew this was happening.
A release date was not announced for the game and a release window was not announced for the game. Stay tuned for more info.
