Yesterday we got a bunch of videos of Tekken 7 in action from the location test. We got to see some of the Rage Arts and the Power Crush attacks as well. Today streams will be up and there will be much more higher quality content coming through. Catch up on yesterday’s clips below. Much more after the jump:
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! http://us.twitcasting.tv/eleodica/movie/105168970
Just revealed from TGS on the MadCatz stream, a new Latin American female character has been added to the roster for Tekken 7! This character will also be available during the location test taking place in Japan from October 3rd to October 5th. Harada has said that the character will be beginner friendly. What does that means exactly? We will have to wait and see. Also, they mentioned that she will have a sassy attitude, and talk a lot while fighting! Additionally, a SECOND new character will also be available at the location test and has characteristics of a 2D fighter!
Also mentioned is that they were doing lag tests between Seoul, South Korea and Japan – possibly for arcades? Very interesting if true!

UPDATED WITH FULL RECAP VIDEO BELOW OFFICIAL TRAILER. Pokemon meets Tekken with Pokken Tournament scheduled for an arcade release in 2015! Apparently there are hints it will head to the WiiU after? Tekken creator Katsuhiro Harada and Soul Calibur producer Masaaki Hoshino are both involved! “Whether you are a casual player, a regular player or a hardcore player, anyone who likes Pokémon can have fun,” said Katsuhiro Harada. Apparently the game will be more casual in nature, but will also appeal to adult gamers. Looks like Harada wasn’t kidding when he said he had a lot of titles he was working on. Check out the trailer below though, it definitely has a Tekken vibe with WAY more flash.
I guess it started with Halo on the original Xbox. It came out in November 2001 and by the following year, Xbox/Halo LAN parties were commonplace. Lots of fun was had in many a college dorms, but I had a conflicted view on it all. Yes, it was a fun game, but I couldn’t help to wonder how much better everything would be if it was on the PC. You see, I had honed my skills on a mouse and keyboard for the past 5 years on shooters like Quake 1, 2, 3, Half-Life 2, and Counter-strike and had now found myself playing this first-person shooter at mediocre to “OMG I can’t even walk straight” levels.
