Tekken 7 has been out now for just over a month and Bandai Namco thought they would celebrate by releasing an accolades trailer. The video shows a lot of the roster in action interspersed with quotes and review scores from different video game blogs and outlets. The game is currently available for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC retailing for $59.99 USD.
For those that need a refresher, Tekken is a series of fighting games dating back to the arcades in 1994. The convoluted story line follows 4 different generations of the Mishima clan who have a tendency for crazy hairstyles, corporate shenanigans, and throwing each other off of cliffs. Tekken 7 continues the tale but has a lot of flashbacks and story bits that fill in the history of the series.
And since release, Bandai Namco have been updating and tweaking the game to make sure it’s fair and fun to all playing it. Today they released patch 1.03 which tightened and quickened finding online matches while also making Revenge bouts even more convenient.
And while the accolades trailer highlights some blurbs about how awesome the game is, it seems like they weren’t too far of from our own Lou Contaldi’s thoughts about his experience. He scored Tekken 7 a very respectable 8.0 and noted that even though it didn’t change much, the series was so strong that it didn’t need to. Here’s a small sample of his review:
“Tekken 7 may not be the perfect entry point for newcomers into the long and twisted narrative that follows the Mishima Zaibatsu, but they will unmistakably have fun with the rock solid gameplay and mechanics. With the addictive Treasure Battle mode, deep character customization, and strong character options, Tekken 7 is one of the best titles in the 23 year-old series.”
