The reveal of Tekken 7‘s expansion Fated Retribution caused quite a stir, especially due to the inclusion of Akuma from Street Fighter, but there’s much more to it, including improved graphics and costumes. Bandai Namco releaseed a batch of screenshots to show how good the game will look. You can see them in the gallery at the bottom of the post.

On top of that, Director and Producer Katsuhiro Harada clarified a few points on Twitter. First of all, he mentioned that the title of the recently announced console release on PS4 and Xbox One is still undecided, and it’s not necessarily Tekken 7: Fated Retribution. That said, consoles will get the latest version of the game.

Harada-san also confirmed that the new visuals won’t just be a matter of better textures, but will also include an overhaul to models.

According to him, the expansion generated 90% positive feedback:

Incidentally, the new costumes showcased are actually the new default outfits:

The expansion will come with new characters on top of Akuma, and Harada-san clarified that among those thre will be Tekken characters. It won’t be just characters from other series.

Last, but not least, if you want the game on PC, Harada-san is aware of that demand, even if he made no promises.
