With the release date almost upon us, Bandai Namco has released a new Tekken 7 trailer titled No Glory for Heroes, shedding some light on the characters in the game and the conflict.
The main focus of the trailer is the feud between Heihachi Mishima and his son Kazuya Mishima who Heihachi beat up and tossed off a cliff as a kid.
Throughout the history of the Tekken franchise, this conflict in the Mishima family has been the main focal point and it seems like it might be coming to a conclusion judging by the tone of the Tekken 7 trailer.
The trailer also gives us a better look at some of the other notable characters from the franchise including Bryan, Nina, Alisa as well as the new addition, Akuma, who is coming over from the Street Fighter franchise to fulfill a promise he made to Kazuya’s mother.
Considering the game is scheduled to release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, Tekken 7 has already gone gold. For those interested in pre ordering, there are a number of different editions with exclusive content to choose from depending on the platform.
Apart from seemingly bringing the story full circle, Tekken 7 is also touching new ground through its revolutionary rendering camera system. According to Bandai Namco, this camera system took years to develop and Tekken 7 is the first fighting game to make use of such technology.
Unfortunately however, for its revolutionary camera, there are some aspects of Tekken 7 which are still somewhat primitive. Unlike Street Fighter V and Killer Instinct, Tekken 7 will not feature cross-play between platforms.
According to the developers, some of it has also to do with the fact that the game is not exclusive to one console and PC like the other two games so creating cross-platform between three platforms can be quite difficult.
