Tekken 7 Confirmed at Madrid Event

tekken_6_500

Tekken 6 made headlines in 2009, mostly because it was released on something other than a PlayStation consoles. However, the fighting game has a long history, and it was almost certain that we’d see a new version at some point.

That point appears to be sometime soon, as Eurogamer.pt reports (via that translated link) that Tekken series director Katsuhiro Harada has announced a seventh edition in the series at an event in Madrid.

No real information is available about the title yet, but I am sure we’ll hear more about with E3 looming large just 3 weeks away. Then again, Tekken 6 was first announced at E3 2005, and didn’t hit consoles until last year. We’ll just have to see.

If we hear anything more from Namco, we’ll pass it directly along to you.

I hope that the Tekken 7 don’t come out to Xbox 360. Would be another downgrade in this serie. PS3 have more capabilities than Xbox 360 that must be exploited.

God! Can’t wait to see its trailer. I just hope that Namco will keep Alisa; she’s so much fun to play with and against. Also, some new moves from her would be nice.

I hope it gets better. I’m a fan of the Tekken series. Tekken 3, 5 DR and Tag enjoyed the most. Looking forward to Tekken 7, Tekken Tag 2 and Tekken X Streetfighter.

I’am not and have never been much of a Tekken fan but I do personally like Heihachi, Jun(I really hope she appears in Tekken 7), Asuka, Emilie/Lili, Miguel, Feng Wei and Dragunov. Always personally liked these characters so I can look forward to Tekken 7 for that reason alone.
