Who is ready for another King of Iron First Tournament? Tekken 7 will finally hit shelves in a few months – but it marks an end of an era. The game’s story so far reeks of dread as the conflicts within the Mishima and the Kazama bloodlines reach their climax.
This story, and more, will be highlighted as soon as Tekken 7 is released within a few months. The mystery around the Devil Gene and its origins will be revealed alongside the appearance of a familiar character. It appears the game also marks the official connection between the Tekken and Street Fighter universes.
Fans of Tekken 7 will immediately recognize this as Akuma, the infamous fighter from Street Fighter. It appears he has a promise to fulfill, and it is to kill Heihachi Mishima. However, this is only if he gets to him before Kazuya Mishima does.
Tekken 7: End of an Era
According to Polygon, Bandai Namco has officially announced that the game will officially have a June 2, 2017 release. Xbox One players of the game will be getting free, backward-compatible copies of Tekken 6 for the Xbox 360. PlayStation 4 players will get costumes and a special jukebox mode.
It is father versus son for the latest installment of the hit fighting game. Kazuya Mishima seeks to end the hatred towards his father by killing him, after Heihachi tried to do the same to him as a child. However, mysteries begin to unravel as Akuma rages on to kill Heihachi himself. Revelations will be revealed as the true mystery behind the Devil Gene and its supposed origin, Kazumi Mishima, is introduced.
However, there is no shortage of content and characters that fans love. Series veterans such as Miguel Caballero and Nina Williams will be present for the characters’ enjoyment. Players can also expect to use fan-favorites such as Hwaorang and Jin Kazama, both mainstays in the original series.
It appears there is more to the leaked secrets than the unconfirmed release date. Users from NeoGAF have uncovered contents of the game’s Deluxe Edition and the Collector’s Edition. It seems fans will be in for a treat, if the sources are correct.
The Deluxe Edition of the game will have both the base game and the season pass. This has two new fighters, at least 30 costumes and stages scattered through three content updates. The updates also tease the arrival of an unannounced game mode. As to when they will arrive, no one knows yet.
Those who pre-ordered the title will get the vampire Eliza in the roster. She previously appeared in Tekken Revolution, meaning this is her second appearance as a fighter. The Collector’s Edition has a huge 12”x18” Kazuya and Heihachi mid-battle figurine. It comes with a steel box, a collector’s box, and the original soundtrack aside from the base game itself.
Players can buy the Deluxe Edition for $75, while they can buy the Collector’s Edition for $149.99. The game will have a June 2, 2017 launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Although, fans will be able to play the game in arcades in Japan.
