Tekken 7 Trailer Covers Nearly 5 Minutes Worth Of Features Packed Into $60
Tekken 7
(Last Updated On: May 1, 2017)

A lot of games these days advertise a lot of bare bones content and try to make it seem as if it’s worth $60. A lot of publisher SOB stories about rising costs of development (*cough * marketing *cough *) and how they have to sell you games worse than their predecessors made a decade ago. Well, Katsuhiro Harada isn’t one of those snake oil salesmen. He’s a guy who takes pride in working hard and actually advancing the game industry, not regressing it like BioWare or other developers who put sociopolitical activism ahead of good game development.

This philosophy is made ever the more evident with a near five minute trailer for Tekken 7 that does nothing but highlight all of the content you will get in the game for $60. It’s jam packed to the rim with characters, story modes, multiplayer modes, character customization, UI customization, online modes, media galleries, and even PSVR content. You can check out the trailer below.

It’s absolutely astounding that Harada and the rest of the team at Namco are actually all about progressive game development; taking what worked and moving it forward. This is how game design should be done, and Western developers should be taking hints at how they’re evolving the genre, the series and the gameplay instead of moving backwards like some studios.

The animations and physics are a step up above Tekken Tag Tournament. The frame-rate and stability are a step up above Tekken 2 – 4. The customization is more in-depth than Tekken 5. The graphics are more improved than Tekken 6, and the characters and options are more diverse and detailed than ever before.

Tekken 7, so far, looks like a game that is supposed to be the next generation in the series, and Namco should be proud.

You can look for the game to launch on June 2nd for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

    The faces in the header image look really weird to me.

    Why won’t you cover the fact that roger jr won’t be in western release?

    • EroBotan

      is it 100% confirmed yet? I read about it in nichegamer but the writer then add that Harada loves trolling their audience in the past.

      • Yeah Harada’s comments make it sound like he’s trolling again. He doesn’t say that he was removed due to PETA just that there were concerns over what they might say.

        • Nathan Feyes

          Yeah, I looked into it further after the replies, and it looks like roger isn’t even in the original release. Boy is my face red.

          • Disqusted

            Yeah, I saw people on Sankaku (of all places) saying it’s fake news because Roger isn’t even in the game.

            I think it’s kinda sad how difficult it is to tell if Harada is trolling or not, because of how crazy people have been behaving of late.
