Extended trailer of Tekken 7 from San-Diego Comic-Con.
Also first new details:
- Tekken 7's plot will have a “very detailed background story” and serve as the conclusion of the Mishima clan saga, Harada said through his translator. The game will apparently answer why Heihachi is trying to kill his grandson, why Hiehachi threw Kazuya off of a cliff, who Devil Jin is and other Tekken mysteries.
- Tekken 7 will feature the character designs of seven guest artists, including Mari Shimazaki (Bayonetta), Yusuke Kozaki (Fire Emblem Awakening, No More Heroes), Ninnin (Duel Masters, Cardfight!! Vanguard) and Kenichiro Yoshimura (Max Anarchy/Anarchy Reigns).
- Harada also confirmed that Lars from Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion will return, as redesigned by Ninnin.
- Director Shinji Aramaki, whose work includes the Appleseed series, Space Pirate Captain Harlock and Halo Legends, is directing Tekken 7's opening pre-rendered cinematic. Aramaki also worked on the animated feature Tekken: Blood Vengeance.
Knee still plays Tekken but wasn’t at EVO, if I recall correctly.
A new entry is coming to the Tekken franchise, and it is being built using Unreal Engine 4.
In a strange turn, the announcement comes from IGN via AOL. It appears as though AOL got its hands on an announcement video from IGN early.
No release date, specific platform announcement, or gameplay can be seen in the video, but a quote from director Katsuhiro Harada says it will be coming to next-gen consoles and with the help of Unreal Engine 4, it can be easily ported to other platforms.
You can find the video with the announcement by heading here.
