Check out Tekken 7's opening movie

I hope Tekken 7's story isn't as big of a departure from the fun of previous entries as this opening movie implies, though its gameplay will always be great no matter what. I'm pretty damn excited for its release, and now that it's only fe...   read

It's going to be great year for fighting games. One of the biggest releases this year is Tekken 7, and to celebrate, Bandai Namco has released a trailer showing off its story. I'm not going to pretend I know what's going on here, but it sh...   read

Tekken 7's retro recap is hilarious, and surprisingly effective

If you aren't all caught up on Tekken 7's story (maybe you missed a few here and there), this official retro recap video from Bandai Namco has you covered. As part of the recent trend from big Japanese publishers, the clip (which is part on...   read

Tekken 7 is nearly here, have a look at its cast minus Roger Jr.

I'll just take a second to pour one out for Roger (jokingly, as Harada rolls with trolls and hoaxes all the time). Would a Fosters be appropriate? I don't know, nothing seems right -- I mean, we "almost" missed out on Lucky Chloe ...   read

Tekken 7 has a ton of customization options, if you're into that

We've already seen a few of the ancillary modes that Tekken 7 is going to offer when it arrives in early June, but as we're nearing its launch, Bandai Namco has shared a few more clips of its many extras. One staple that's sorely missi...   read

Tekken 7 on the Switch? Fat chance, says producer Harada

GameSpot had a chance to talk to Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada about getting Tekken 7 on the Switch, and prospects do not look good. According to Harada, "Officially, we can't really comment on that because our company has stri...   read

(Update) Roger Jr. has been cut from Tekken 7 due to fear of 'animal activists'

[Update: Harada stated on Twitter recently that he "hasn't talked to anyone," and that Roger Jr. isn't cut.] One of the best things about the Tekken series is that it has never taken itself seriously. Sure, there is a ruff and gruff story a...   read

Is anyone even excited for Tekken 7?

Tekken has always rocked it with extra modes. Sports minigames, beat 'em up gaidens -- they're par for the course. Tekken 7: Fated Retribution doesn't look as crazy as some past releases but it seems up there in terms of variety, at l...   read

More guest characters are coming to Tekken 7 as DLC

Though Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada initially seemed against the idea of guest characters, noting that Akuma fit the series however, I suppose once you open the door it's hard to close it back up again.  Bandai Namco announced thei...   read

Tekken 7 adds the vampire Eliza as pre-order DLC

Every bit of Tekken 7 footage has looked better than the last, but Namco Bandai always seems a bit icky with how much DLC seems to be planned with each of their fighting games. Nevertheless, if the eventual DLC additions look as good as Eli...   read

Tekken 7 is out in June with a collector's edition

Having been in this industry a long time, I'm used to blocking off basically all of June as "the E3 month." Everything to be around that time frame is "before E3" (BE3!) or "after E3," and in this case, I'll have a few good weeks with Tekke...   read

Tekken 7 adds the cute Kuma and Panda to the roster

With how seriously Tekken 7 is taking itself with its story, I was worried there wouldn't be room for the series' trademark goofiness. Luckily, we can put those fears to bed as Kuma and Panda will be joining the roster when the se...   read

Another Pokemon is being added to the arcade version of Pokken Tournament

Tekken 7's console edition is on par with arcades

I don't have as much to say about Tekken 7 because there just isn't a whole lot to say. It's Tekken. That's all you need you know really. If you're a Tekken fan and been following it, you'll already know that the game is...   read

Tekken 7 adds Bob and Master Raven to its roster

When Tekken 7 makes it to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in early 2017, our dear round friend/enemy Bob ("likes: crime fighting"; "dislikes: weight loss") will be invited to the party. Series director Katsuhiro Harada took EVO 2016 weekend...   read

Wow, Akuma's appearance in Tekken is really faithful

So uh, hey! Akuma is in Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, which is currently in Japanese arcades now. But it's not just a half-assed homage, as Bandai Namco has basically translated his entire set of animations from Street Fighter IV. Want proof...   read
