Bandai Namco has promised Tekken 7 will still be playable for beginners, yet deep enough for hardcore gamers to sink their teeth into.
Tekken 7’s director Katsuhiro Harada confirmed the following in a Twitter message he sent out earlier today.
“That’s right. Easy for beginners but deep for core players. It’s very difficult balance but we should do that”
The Tekken games have always been a series loved by millions of gamers of all skill types. There are characters that suit beginners more than others. It’s a series that button mashers can easily play, yet there are complex combos and juggles that hardcore gamers can learn too.
Tekken 7 might still have the same control scheme so people familiar with the series won’t have to relearn everything. Some people argued the juggling was too much in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, but Harada stressed he’s listening to all type of feedback.
Harada has been very responsive on his Twitter account answering many fans’ questions about Tekken 7. If you want something improved in the series, you could message him and he might answer you. Bandai Namco is determined to make the game the biggest and best they’ve ever released.
Tekken 7 is expected for release sometime next year.
