Tekken 7 is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC early next year, and DualShockers had a chat with Bandai Namco Brand Manager Mark Religioso during a preview event in New York.

Religioso talked about fighting game trends, and how the publisher sees that players don’t want just the core multiplayer experience, but also a full fledged single player story. He also confirmed that Tekken X Street Fighter is on development hold, and explained how the arcade release could be considered like a beta to deliver a polished game on consoles.

Last but not least, he also teased how new characters may be announced soon. Check the full interview below.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
