There have been a lot of recent video games that don’t offer much (or any) single player modes whatsoever. Bandai Namco is promising that Tekken 7 will have a more fleshed out single player experience.
During a new interview, Bandai Namco America’s Mark Religioso said that fighting game fans demand more than just the core gameplay. Fighting game fans also expect to see a robust single player experience too.
He said that Bandai Namco is pushing really hard for the story mode in Tekken 7 so you will see it come out on launch day when the game comes out on consoles. This is unlike Street Fighter 5 where the story mode came out four months after release.
He promises the story mode will integrate both in-game cinematics that transition into gameplay. It will also have a lot of dialogue between the characters. It sounds like it will have a story mode that is similar to the recent Mortal Kombat video games.
It’s great to see that Bandai Namco is listening to the fans and isn’t rushing the game out the door. There’s no release date for the console version yet, but expect it to hit the PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2017.
