Jack the robot is back in Tekken 7 as Jack-7


Too seven for me
May 15
While Yoshimitsu has undergone some sort of Cthulhuian ritual to turn into a squid, Jack will be returning as the same old robot you're familiar with. On May 19 the arcade edition of Tekken 7 will be getting Jack-7. His... read

Watch 12 minutes of Yoshimitsu battling it out in Tekken 7


Still my favorite
May 13
Yoshimitsu has undergone a lot of changes over the years. From a cyborg to a more traditional ronin outfit, to a bug...thing, and now, Cthulu's newphew. I dig them all, and across multiple franchises like Soul Calibur, he ha... read

Yoshimitsu is coming to Tekken 7


Wow, really? I'd never have guessed
May 08
Yoshimitsu’s turned into a weird mix of Cthulhu, a Xenomorph, NiGHTS, and Frieza from Dragonball for his appearance in Tekken 7. The video released by Namco shows him in all of his swordy, hovery, self-stabby glory; a... read

When Tekken met Galaga

Can two friends sleep together and still love each other in the morning? I don't know about all that, but the idea of Galaga x Tekken sounds damn fine to me. It originally entered our consciousness on April Fools' Day, but i... read

Tekken 7 extended trailer is twice as overdramatic


I love Heihachi...and he loves me
Jul 25
I can't believe Liam Neeson has already made seven of these. There was a trailer for this recently, but this Comic-Con trailer is twice and long, therefore twice as good. You can say, "It's not about the length of the trailer, it's how you use it" all you like, but it's a half truth.  Also, please never say Heihachi again. read

Also, Raiden gets even more annoying moves
For whatever reason, AOL accidentally let the cat out of the bag about Tekken 7, which is going to be running on Unreal Engine 4, and now we have a big ol' trailer for the game. Meanwhile, in a different game about guys with dumb hair hitting each other, Raiden has been revealed for Mortal Kombat X, and he seems to have a very loose understanding of what thunder can and can't block out. read feature
