Tekken 7 shows off Claudio and Katarina

Arcade opening

I’ve always had a soft spot for Tekken. Although the name doesn’t carry as much weight these days, I still get excited at the prospect of playing as Yoshimitsu or another classic character while I pick up the new systems.

Bandai Namco has released a new trailer for the game showing off the arcade opening, as well as some new footage of Claudio and Katarina. It gives you a nice look at the “Power Clash” mechanic, which allows you to avoid a pushback to get more punishes in.

I’m not sold on Power Clash yet but it will definitely make for some exciting matches.
