Hey guys, as you’ve probably heard by now Tekken 7 was announced at Evolution 2014 this past weekend! Some of the more interesting bits about it are that it is running on the Unreal 4 Engine and that This was a bit of a surprise as a lot of people had been expecting Tekken x Street Fighter, which Harada mentioned as still being a work in progress. The announcement trailer has been out since yesterday and you can catch it after the jump. Since I was at the event, I got a recording of it as it debuted in front of the Evolution crowd, so you can experience it with the crowd reaction below! What changes do you guys hope to see in Tekken 7?
Gamespot has revealed that Namco will be released Tekken Revolution, a free 2 play fighting game, exlusively for the Playstation 3 on June 11th! I was tweeting about this as an idea months ago, so I’m really looking forward to it! The footage at 19m30s mark only shows a few characters (Kazuya, Lars, Paul and Bryan), but nothing is known about the game yet. Stages and graphics look like they are revamped from Tekken Tag Tournament 2. If you guys remember, it was announced a few months ago that patents were filed for Tekken Revolution and Tekken Arena. Now we know what Tekken Revolution is, will we find out what Tekken Arena is at E3 as well!?
Update: Michael Murray has confirmed on twitter that there will be gameplay differences!
Injustice:Gods Among Us, the upcoming fighting game from the makers of Mortal Kombat 9 has an official released date – April 16th! The Collectors Edition comes with a cool statue of Batman getting owned up by Wonder Woman. The Battle Edition comes with a brand new arcade stick with a design that looks similar to Batman’s armor (UPDATE: Battle Edition only available for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, not for the WiiU). Going with the bat theme, the stick is also a BAT top! No word yet on what part is within the stick, but my guess is that its PDP / AGE. Check out the screens and info about the digital comic after the jump:
This was sent to me by an anonymous tipster who attended the SCV World Finals last night. What could it mean? Harada also tweeted that there would be a press event today. Could it be related?
The official Tekken-Net site has revealed that the update for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Unlimited will go live on March 27th, 2012. Thats right, only 4 more days before Japan gets it. While this isn’t necessarily the date that all regions will get it, I would expect that all regions will have it relatively soon after. If you’ve been keeping up with recent posts and our Youtube channel, then you know that there is a good chance the USA will also have an arcade release for the game as well. Fingers crossed that it isn’t too far out!
Tekken 3DS Prime Edition has a release date. February 16, 2012 – Andriasang reports that this date is listed in the latest Famitsu. Not much has been revealed about the game, but we do know that it will come with the Tekken:Blood Vengeance movie on the cart and that the movie can playback in 3D. The release date is interesting as it puts right firmly between Soul Calibur 5′s January 31 release date and Street Fighter x Tekken’s March 6 release date. It doesn’t look like it will be a tag game, however there are 40 characters, Young Heihachi, new stages, and redesigned old stages so it will be interesting to see what kind of move list they decide to go with. Check out more images from the game here.
