Tekken 7 – First Gameplay Screenshots – New Character Claudio!

by Rip

Just released from the location test comes a new PDF file that goes over some of the games new mechanics as well as a movelist for the 18 characters available in the build. Two new features in the game are a new Rage Arts and Power Crush attacks. Power Crush attacks are attacks that will go through other attacks, BUT you will still take damage if you were attacked during it. This means its similar to invincible moves from Tekken Revolution. One notable exception, is that it will only absorb high and mid moves, not low moves! Check out the PDF and first gameplay screenshots HERE. Also revealed was a new character, Claudio! Also, the character we thought was Catalina is actually Katarina! Surprise!

Translation by Noodalls via Neogaf:
Rage arts
Once your health falls below a certain value, you enter into rage mode and your attack power increases. During that time, you have access to special powerful moves known as rage arts.
The command varies per character, so check the command list.

- when the life bar indicates, you have access to rage arts
- you can use them in combos
- go for the comeback victory!!

Power Crush
Even if you are hit during your attack, you will continue to attack until the end of the move. It is powerful as you can use it as often as you like, to absorb as many attacks as you like, but you will still take the damage from the opponent’s move, so watch your life bar carefully.

In the move list on page 3, the red moves are rage arts, the blue moves are power crush. It also mentions that power crush moves will only absorb the opponent’s high and mid moves.

cool vid Rip. Thanks for digging through all that footage for evidence. Glad to see that they've buffed floor breaks to make up for almost ditching bound altogether. The slow down looks pretty hype and I can imagine that'll cause some pretty dope moments in live play. I'm hoping the rage arts are a work-in-progress as they don't seem to do a great deal and the animations could do with a little bit more spice. All-in-all, I'm modestly hyped and cautiously optimistic!

After seeing more of this game, I think the game will be fine without bound. There's a new mechanic to extend combos. I'll talk about it and show it in a video in a few hours

Bound looks like its gone the route of Tekken Revolution. In fact, most of the gameplay looks similar to TR. Backwalk, backroll catches seem to work like TR, etc

Tekken players are so unopen to change. These mechanics won't be a huge deal if they're balanced. There's little difference between a Rage Crush and a reversal, except Rage Crush still takes damage and is probably easier to punish (save for Asuka's lol). Wait and see how it actually works.

Rage Arts and Power Crush doesn't sound like Tekken at all. I was just hoping for a practical application of the special moves they implemented in Tekken Revo (complete with the flashy graphics). But, eh, we'll see.

But TEKKEN Rev is  just at heart a stripped down Tag 2? most people don't like it because the online sucks and is full of scrubs
