Bandai Namco Entertainment has a new Tekken 7 release date for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, moving from Early 2017 to June 2nd, 2017. So a minor delay, but one that ends up giving us a firm release date for the game that has been in arcades for more than a year. Tekken 7 will hit PC and consoles with a number of additional features, improvements, and changes.
The official press release reads: “TEKKEN 7 for home consoles and PCs represents the culmination of the highest levels of fighting game development, even surpassing its arcade counterpart by offering additional balance and fine tuning, the inclusion of a dramatic story mode, more characters, and the implementation of online tournament modes that are sure to ignite the fighting spirit amongst gamers around the world.”
Tekken 7 will launch with a collector’s edition and season pass. The collector’s edition will be exclusive to PS4 and Xbox One, and will contain “a spectacular statue measuring approximately 12” tall by 18” wide that features a dynamic pose with Kazuya fly kicking Heihachi in mid-air, a special Steel Book, and the official TEKKEN 7 soundtrack.”
The Tekken 7 Season Pass will be available for all platforms and will give players “access to three content packs aimed to extend the TEKKEN 7 experience and will include new playable characters, new stages, a new game mode, costume packs, and a bonus 35-piece Metallic Costume Pack.” If you don’t like pre-ordering DLC then you can wait and buy each DLC expansion separately, of course.
This is a Tekken game though, and the series has had a long relationship with PlayStation, so it’s not surprising to see that the PS4 version will have certain exclusives. These are “legacy costumes from TEKKEN 4 and TEKKEN 2 for King, Xiaoyu and Jin as well as a Jukebox Mode where fans can listen to classic Tekken music tracks and even create playlists of Tekken music to listen to while they play.”
