After many rumors and speculations, Bandai Namco Entertainment confirmed Tekken 7 for PC which is the first game in the 22-year-old franchise to release on PC.
In an interview at Gamescom 2016, Tekken 7 Producer Katsuhiro Harada talked about the upcoming fighting game and what can PC players expect from it – in terms of storyline and mechanics.

According to Harada, since Tekken 7 is the first Tekken game to release on PC, the developers are trying hard to make the game as accessible as possible – especially when it comes to the game’s long-running storyline. I guess, there will be some sort of recap which will cover the game’s story this far.
Tekken 7 will not only conclude Mishima’s saga, but will also explain what ties Kazumi has with Akuma from Street Fighter franchise.
Apart from storyline, Harada also talked about the highly anticipated Tekken x Street Fighter. He confirmed that the game is currently on hold and has not been scrapped. Due to demand from fans, the studio shifted its focus on Tekken, but will return to Tekken x Street Fighter once Tekken 7 is released.
