Tekken 7 Confirmed for “Early 2017” Release on Consoles and PC

Katsuhiro Harada, long-time producer on the Tekken series, appeared during Microsoft’s E3 2016 press conference to confirm what platforms Tekken 7 will heading to.

The new installment in the fighting series is slated for release in “early 2017” for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Harada confirmed that the title will be bringing a brand new story mode that is designed to transition seamlessly between high-quality cinematic sequences and actual gameplay. That transition was demonstrated to us in gameplay footage released (below), showcasing Heihachi Mishima exchanging blows with Street Fighter’s Akuma.

Furthermore, Harada announced that Bandai Namco is going to be giving away free copies of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 to all Xbox One owners during this E3 week. The game is supported through the backward compatibility feature of the XBox 360 console, which players can utilize to play their free Tekken copy.

For quite a while, it was rumored that Tekken 7 would not arrive on PC. Even Harada, known for his trolling on social media, refrained from giving away any mention of any platform. The PC-base would be both excited and glad to know that the new Tekken game is going to release for their beloved rigs.
