Today, Tekken 7: Fated Retribution from publisher Bandai Namco and its in-house developer Bandai Namco Studios launches worldwide on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, accompanied by an official launch trailer.
For those that don’t know: Tekken 7 is a fighting game in one of the most iconic fighting game franchises: Tekken. Despite being labeled Tekken 7, the game is actually the 9th installment in the series, and is notably the first to make use of the Unreal Engine.
The game first arrived on the scene back in March 2015 in Japan via an arcade release after being first announced at EVO 2014. An updated arcade version, dubbed Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, was then released in July 2016, and featured expanded content including new stages, costumes, items, and charters. Then Bandai Namco announced the game was releasing worldwide on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on June 2, 2017. And here we are: June 2nd.
Tekken 7 notably serves as the last chapter of Mishima clan saga, and will apparently answer why Heihachi is trying to kill his grandson Jin, why Heihachi threw his son Kazuya off a cliff when he was a child, and the origins of the Devil Gene, among a few other mysteries in the series. Further, the game’s story is said to be much darker than ever-before.
Tekken 7 is available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC at the price-point of $59.99 USD. It also supports PS VR, though this support is notably not very deep. Below, you can check out the official launch trailer, as well as our review of the game here.
