Tekken 7 will require a DualShock 4 at EVO 2015

Even though it’s an arcade build

If you’re heading to EVO this year to participate in the Tekken 7 tournament, you may want to add an extra checkbox to your packing list. According to Mad Catz community manager Mark Julio, you will need a DualShock 4 to play.

Despite the fact that it will be running on arcade hardware straight from Japan, players will still need a controller. Since a lot of Tekken players tend to use pads, this isn’t that big of a deal — unless you have to shell out the $50 extra for EVO this July.
