Lots of great news has come out of Microsoft’s E3 2016 press event today. We’ve seen the company’s new Xbox, heard about its 4K Xbox One, and have had a glimpse of some of the upcoming games for its platforms. Tekken 7 is one of those games. Developer Bandai Namco has confirmed that Tekken 7 for Xbox One and PC is going to be released early next year. The confirmation was made by Katsuhiro Harada and Michael Murray during Microsoft’s E3 2016 press event.
A Tekken 7 for Xbox One trailer was showcased at the event which featured Street Fighter character Akuma as well as Heihachi Mishima from Tekken. The cinematic action was mixed perfectly with in-game fighting sequences, making it quite a treat to watch the first trailer.
During their time at Microsoft’s event, Katsuhiro Harada and Michael Murray also confirmed that Tekken Tag Tournament is going to be available for free to Xbox Live Gold members this week. Xbox Live members who are fans of this franchise will certainly not waste any time in taking advantage of this offer.
Tekken 7 has previously been confirmed for PlayStation 4 as well but it’s yet to be released when the game will arrive on Sony’s console. Tekken 7 for Xbox One will be released in early 2017, it will be coming to PC via Steam around the same time. It’s unclear as yet if Tekken 7 will have cross-play support, a feature that’s now present on the Xbox One.
