This announcement comes as a relief for the fans who were worried that Tekken 7 might not release in early 2017 as rumors were also circulating that the game would be skipping the early 2017 release.

Like the previous entries in the franchise, Tekken 7 will feature both singleplayer and online mode and according to devs, the singleplayer for Tekken 7 will not be a conventional story mode. Producer Katsuhiro Harada revealed that the Tekken 7 story mode is going to be a bit different from the previous games in the Tekken franchise and other fighting games.

In typical story modes in other fighting games, you merely load the game, each character says one or two lines to each other before the battle, then you go into the standard battle with the timer from the same position all the time. All the same rules apply from them fighting.

He further added that the team has changed that and as the situation of the battle changes so does the character’s reaction to it.

Akuma will also be featured in the upcoming Tekken 7 but Katsuhiro has clarified that he won’t be a guest character in the game but will be a part of the main story.

Tekken 7 is a fighting game in development at Bandai Namco and will launch in early 2017 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
