It looks like Tekken 7 got confirmed for PS4 and Xbox One

We knew Tekken 7 would be coming to consoles, we just didn't know the exact platforms yet. Based on this Epic Games sizzle reel for Unreal Engine 4 (that was taken down, but re-uploaded by user GenEnemy), it looks like we ha...

There's a lot of lava in Tekken 7's arcade intro

Although I haven't gotten into the mainline Tekken games for a while (I've always favored Tag), Tekken 7 is looking pretty great. In this new intro video for the arcade version, you'll be able to see Kazuya and Hei...

The return of news on Dtoid's YouTube channel? Let's start with Pokkén Tournament

Today was a pretty huge day for Destructoid. One of the founding fathers of the website returned to the fold and swiftly kicked NBA2K15 in the nuts. We reviewed the New 3DS with lukewarm appreciation, tempered with the ...

Nya! Good god, Tekken 7's Lucky Chloe is anime as hell

I have a strong urge to get very, very good at Tekken 7 and just piss off (mostly western) players by beating them endlessly with this stupid cat girl.

This Tekken 20th anniversary video brings me back

I still remember the first time I played Tekken. I never really got into Virtua Fighter until the fourth iteration, but as soon as Tekken was available on the first PlayStation, I was obsessed. Over the years I enj...

Shake your head 'yes' to this footage of the Tekken team's Project Morpheus game

Bandai Namco is making Pokkén Tournament with older fans in mind

I get the sinking feeling it'll be a good long while before we get our hands on Pokkén Tournament, Bandai Namco's Pokémon fighting game for arcades (and probably Wii U). Until then, here's another quote about th...
