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

What is 'Tekken Card Tournament'?


New Namco Bandai trademark filed
Nov 19
Whatever it is, I'm in. I love Tekken, and I love card-based games. The combination of the two could be great. It's too bad that we have no idea what 'Tekken Card Tournament' really is, though. Siliconera found that Namco Bandai filed a trademark for the name in Europe. They're guessing it could be a mobile or social game. Fair guess. What's your guess? read
