by Rip

TEKKEN 7 – PC and Console Release Date! Early 2017! Thats right, confirmed this morning at the Microsoft XBOX E3 Conference, Tekken 7 will be released early 2017 on the PC via Steam, Xbox One, and the Playstation 4. They showed off a snippet of the new story mode which shows seamless transitions between cutscene animations and gameplay. They also showed quicktime events in the cutscenes and in the gameplay. Additionally, it mentions “WHO WILL SURVIVE – FATHER OR SON?” implying that either Heihachi or Kazuya will die! Check it out and my live reactions to it below!
UPDATE: BandaiNamco site notes 3-31-17 as the release date (March 31, 2017). That may be a placeholder date though

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.

Tekken Revolution – Free 2 Play – Fighting Game – PS3 Exclusive – June 11

by Rip

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 – Official Release Date, Collectors Edition, & Battle Edition Revealed!

by Rip

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:

Tekken Tag 2 – Worldwide Console Release Date, Pre-Order DLC Exclusives, Remix Soundtrack

by Rip

EuroGamer has just revealed the Tekken Tag 2 European Release date along with more info on the DLC characters. The game will be released in Europe on September 14th, 2012! Tekken Facebook page says that the game will release worldwide on the week of September 10th. So for the USA, with our Tuesday releases we’re looking at September 11th (as confirmed by Gamestop). The DLC characters will be pre-order bonuses from different stores. With Harada mentioning that he won’t be doing paid DLC, it stands to reason that the characters will be time-released DLC for everyone or have some other way of unlocking them within the game. That metal case version for GAME buyers looks awesome as well! Also, in the image below a Remix Sound Track is clearly marked so it looks like there will be new music as well! And Behind the Scenes stuff too!? Too good!
