Tekken 7 Arcade Release Date – February 2015

by Rip

Looks like Japan will be seeing Tekken 7 hit arcades in February 2015. This information is available from Arcade Game Portal and features some awesome catalog images as you can see below. The full arcade cabinet price looks to be about $15,000 and the PCB version at about $11,000. Looking at some of these images, you can see that the full customization we’ve come to expect will be returning. Unfortunately all the characters in the catalog were available at the location test, so no one new to confirm.
