Bandai Namco announced Tekken 7 at the Evolution Championship Series fighting game tournament last night with a teaser trailer, below.
Tekken 7, built with Epic’s Unreal Engine 4, features the Mishimas – fighting game’s most dysfunctional family – who are at each other’s throats once again.
The teaser features Kazumi, Heihachi’s lover and Kazuya’s mother. Kazumi believes she must stop Heihachi as Kazuya accuses Heihachi of killing her.
The trailer ends with the message: “The final battle.”
Platforms are unannounced, but Tekken 7 is expected to launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Tekken series executive producer and game director Katsuhiro Harada said he picked Unreal Engine 4 because it meant the developers could focus on making the game rather than worry about spending time creating their own game engine.
“With Unreal Engine 4, we could rapidly achieve visual quality expected on next-gen platform and go beyond it,” he said.
“Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to immediately bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.”
More information on Tekken 7 is expected during a Comic-Con panel on 25th July.
