Katsuhiro Harada, director of Tekken project, confirms in Madrid event.
nice... T6 as my current best fighting game. Myabe untill tekken 7 or Dead or alive 5 comes out, that will change, but who knows.
To regain its throne. I disliked the fact that Tekken 6 was so focused on air combos being able to be chained even longer with bounds. If they want to focus on air combos, they should make it MUCH harder to time the attacks. As of right now, you can just press the combinations ahead of time and its a 99% chance your attacks will hit as long as you know the correct combination. But I still love Tekken 6 because strategy still plays a huge role. Although most people like to take the easy way out and just learn combos and try to execute them all day during a match whenever possible. -_-"
They need to bring Force mode back to what it was in Tekken 4 too.
1. Able to choose which downloaded player Ghosts you want to battle. 2. Minimize lag 3. Beach Ball Mode!!! :P 4. Tag Mode!!! :P 5. More satisfying and important endings 6. RPG Mode Basically an updated Scenario Mode where characters can gain stats and equipment/weapons. Able to go online in this mode and versus other players with their upgraded characters too. In this mode, EVERY character's unique story can be played out akin to Soul Calibur.
Porting it to non-PlayStation branded platforms was a huge mistake too.
Tekken needs Combo Breaker!!! Right now, Tekken 6 is like this: Attempt to do a move. Missed. Get hit by an air combos. 75 HP gone. Attempt to do another move. Missed. Get hit by another air combos. Dead. A fighting game where you only have 2 chance to make a move isn't a very fun game. That kind of gameplay should only be reserve for games like Bushido Blade, where you can instantly kill your opponent, as a real Samurai would, with a Katana blade. Tekken 6 is pure QTE crap right now. All you do now is memorize the air combos button sequence and pressing them in a sequence until your opponent is dead. There is no longer any strategy. As soon as air combo hit, the other guy can't do anything but watch his character gets own until he die. Pure QTE crap. Just press these buttons in a sequence and watch your opponent die. No freedom at all.
The bound combos in Tekken 6 are stupid recockulous. They are too easy to pull off, and after one misstep you get to take your hands of your arcade stick for five minutes while your opponent depletes your entire lifebar as you fly through the fucking air. I hope that Tekken 7 moves away from bound moves and steals some of the Virtua Fighter series’ technical thunder. I would love Tekken to be more of a nuanced fighter, and less of a canned combo button mash. ...and they need to bring back some sort of tag team mode...and Tekken Bowl.
1: Focus story mode on Arcade fighting, not scenario mod 2: bring back tekken force, ball, bowling, Tiger back 3: NO MORE AZAZEL or NANCY fighter types. Azazel was cheap, jinpachi was challenging.
Pass. I'll wait for Tekken 7 Bloodline Rebellion. :P
o god when will this series end..
It better have eddie in it :(
i mean a deal made in hell cause these games steal souls so you have been warned
Peaked at 3. Also, XBros... how are you finding the d-pad whilst playing tekken 6? Is it any more difficult? The final boss is frustrating enough using the ps3 controller.
Seriously have never seen anyone on my XBL or PSN account playing the game. No friends on MSN, forums or anything. Curious to how it sold.
it when Amazon had it brand new for about $13.
picked each of them up for -$20. After the demo there was no way I was paying full price for Namco's 1st NOT arcade perfect port. The game barely looks better than TDR. The resolution makes the game look muddy at times. Also I agree with those that say this is so air juggle friendly. Give me an air counter or make the timing more precise to keep them going.
Got it day 1.
Its oki I think Tekken5 DR is better for ps3 Somehow the game doesnt look as good and im not too much of a fan for air juggle and rage mode. Biggest problem with the game is the online mode is laggy as hell hope they fix that in Tekken7.
It came with my PS3, would have bought it anyway though.
PS3: Japan: 0.17m Americas: 0.60m Others: 0.79m Total: 1.56m 360: Japan: 0.05m Americas: 0.38m Others: 0.34m Total: 0.77m
I want another Soul Caliber!!
Tekken gets no more money from me until I see some real progression. The last few have so little between them.
Hmm, I haven't even got Tekken 6 yet. I mean, I MEANT to, but the fact is, me and my friends are happy enough playing the PSN version of Tekken 5 and Tekken 6 for PS3 is mightily expensive, even secondhand.
Tekken 5 PSN has better net coding and less loading than Tekken 6 online. Stick with 5, rent 6.
Namco took a step back on the series and butchered it. As a student and fan of the series I wanted to cry but thank God I bought it for 40 bucks on the same day I bought SSIV.
I haven't even got Tekken 6 yet. I take it this is gonna take another 6 million years to release.
They have to completely revamped the series now, seeing the disaster Tekken 6 was. Namco should just bring back the SC series.
It sold very well on PS3, terribly on XBOX. The difference between SFIV players and Tekken 6 players on PS3 is very, very small. It's massive on XBOX though, I guess it just shows that PS3 owners are loyal to the consoles exclusive gone multi platform titles. This time it'll need HD graphics, to be honest. Either that or take the easy way out and cell shade, I'd prefer the latter but whatever.
On PS3 had loading issues, really not good thing for an online fighter. Capcom fixed it with Super Street Fighter 4, PS3 had no install and faster loading than 360. PS3 ver outsold the 360 version in the NPD charts. Just shows that if you put effort into PS3 titles, people will take notice.
Can't wait to play more Tekken Street Mode /s
I'm actually starting to worry about E3 with all the big announcments that have leaked/been announced befor it. I'll also pick the the LE on day one like I did with Tekken 6 on PS3.
when Tekken 6 was announced I was ecstatic, not so much this time round. Check out my review for details ;) http://n4g.com/tag/userrevi...
feelings mutual right after my Tekken 6 experience. I feel that the older Tekkens were way better than the recent crap.
why i am not excited when i see this news and i am even one of the biggest tekken supporter? its not not the same anymore everytime there is a rumor/news of a new tekken game. its the same feeling i have with resident evil 6.
...please for the love of god. Tekken needs something different. Soul Caliber has weapons and the fight tower, DOA has awesome multi-tiered levels, Virtua Fighter takes real skill and Street Fighter is just quality. Tekken 7 will need to do something special otherwise it will become a even more of a "has been" franchise
I think Tekken 7 will be great.if you take a look at tekken games history,you'll notice that the first games to hit the console are usually not that good while it improves amazingly in the second game.it's why I felt that tekken 6 won't be that good while the tekken 7 will be better.take a look: psx era: tekken 1 was good but still missing something and wasn't that popular.tekken 2 was the one that made tekken series so famous that even EGM gave it game of the year award for psx! ps2 era: tekken 4 was considered the worst tekken to its fans.tekken 5 was probably the best fighting game on ps2 and sold 6 million copies. ps3 era: tekken 6 was disappointing to many.tekken 7....will the trend continue? lets hope so ;)
hum the first ps2 tekken was tekken Tag , and was awesome , so it doesnt work at all . And tekken 1 was a major success . The first ps3 tekken was tekken 5 DR , so again no That theory just doesnt work at all
tekken 1 wasn't popular.tekken 2 was the game that made tekken series popular. tekken tag is tekken 3 with tag mode added some characters. tekken 5 DR is just tekken 5 with online mode and plus 2 characters.I'm taking about the next new tekken game in the series which means 1,2,3,4,5,7,8...etc so the theory is still on.I excluded spin off or games that aren't true sequels from what I mentioned cus that what they were,spin off not the next real thing.
given how much more appreciated most of the spin off have been , it's silly to exclude them . hell it would be like also forgetting everything that happened between sf2 and sf3 . As the first developped on each console , it just mean they already got a good handle of the console's developpement . Tekken tag 's mechanics were t3 based , but it was a major remake . Major with everyone from t2 being included , and the scale of the technology . It was easily better looking than t3 arcade . T5 ps2 was obviously not up to the arcade verion , and the ps3 went above with 1080p hd graphics +the gameplay change from Dark ressurrection , and the online. So imo your theory doesnt work . Gameplay and technology wise , each time they were ready because of the spin offs , wich are as true title of the franchise than the rest . Even their story is still canon and rather official . How did those T2 characters reappeared if they didnt count as true chapters ? And how do we factor lily and dragunov ? As for tekken 1 ... When did i say that tekken 2 wasnt bigger ? Never . i'm stating again that tekken 1 was a major success , even if t2 was bigger . T1 is one of those games that fricking sold the ps1 ( more than 3millions , against the 5 of t2)...
did I say tekken 1 was bad? I said tekken 1 wasn't as popular as the other tekken games.and I'm sure since I lived that era.at that time people were over mortal combat 3 and king of fighters games.tekken was a game that has potential but still needed some polish (ign gave it 7.5/10) but it was the game which which made me had my first psx in 1995 cus my father was impressed with it. and yeah spin offs should be excluded cus your not building a new game or engine.it's the same models,background,music,etc... it's the same game.its up to if you consider adding 2 characters to a game should be labeled as a true new sequel to you.but like I said,I'm only talking about real sequels(can't you at least focus on this point?)namco's first tekken sequel on a console usually is an idea while the next one is the improvement just like the obvious examples I mentioned.this is a theory that me and my friends share about when we talk about tekken so maybe we should wait and and see how tekken 7 will perform.and we hope that our little theory which worked so far will happen again cus we want a better tekken.its just a theory which me and my friend like to believe in and worked with us so far,dude.not a fact that you all should live with :P tekken 7 could be the worst tekken ever.are we going to get mad because the theory didn't work or because as a tekken fan,tekken 7 was a huge disappointment?obviously it will be the second reason
OK I was really disappointed with Tekken 6 but I'm really hyped for Tekken 7. The reason why I'm hyped is because Tekken 7 will give them a chance to regain their crown and improve on everything they failed on with Tekke 6. Hopefully this time they get it right, I can't wait!
Itagaki won't be happy :P
if they want to bring me back they have to work hard because we are in another level of graphics and gameplay. Tekken 6 was not what i expect to see in next gen consoles. If they don't make significant changes ..........a big game will be forgotten!
i bought a PS1 after playing tekken on my cousins's PS1, i enjoyed myself soo much even though he was wooping my ass. Carried on to the PS2 and bought titles like tekken tag and tekken 4, i use to pass by a game shop after school and many students were there playing the shop keeper lol. After tekken 6 was announced for PS3 i just knew i had to get it for PS3, unfortunately this gen has a lot of things i still dont understnd...exclusive ties or should i say lies. with so many delays and then the final confirmation of multiplat i just thought screw it ill pass.
It was Outdated before it even got shiped.Everything looked and Played like it was made a decade ago.Returned it the first day.
Great, I wonder if I'll be here (on N4G) in 2015.
Tekken 6's issue wasnt that it was outdated , the problems and bad decisions of t6 have very little to do with ps3/360 technical issues or performances . Sure there is the issue of the game not looking as good as it should/could , but let's leave that aside . The main issue and source of boredom with tekken , imo , is that path they've taken since T4 . Tekken 6 is basically the culmination and polish of those ideas germinated since t4 and 5 . Too much focus on juggling and bounce based combos , with an ever aggravated effect , due to the impact of interactive backgrounds . Tekkn was NEVER about comboing , despite featuring them like every other fighting series . There is a good reason why spamming the 10hits combos were the hallmark of scrubs and noobs , given how easy they are to predict and stop , usually . And here we are with the last 3-4 tekken constantly adding to juggling capability , making most match a boring session of never ending combos , weither you are on the giving or receiving end . Sure the pro and advanced players match dont play out like that , but that's because most of them got incredible reading and tactical skills to begin with , and because they play out of habit from the early tekken tittle . Every frickin' other fighting franchises have considerably nerfed heavy comboying into something not always worth it , buy nerfing damage and using rates . So why would a game who was never into those , and with his pro players straying away from it , going through that crap ?
BEST Tekken was...'Tekken 3' on PS1;)
is that the Tekken that allows you to use the little dinosaur, Gon i think was his name. was my favourite character lol
After playing Tekken 6, I'm not really excited for this one. I would prefer another Tekken Tag game. Anyways, some things I would love to see in T7: Scenario mode should have both offline and online co-op from the start, and scenario mode shouldn't be the main focus of the game. They should rebuild Alissa; she's freaking cheap. No more cheap boss battle (Jinpachi & Azazel). Fix the lag, other online issues and cut down the loading times. Most of the FMVs in Tekken 6 were disappointing, and I also didn't like that the endings were unlocked without playing the arena mode. There's a lot more, but yeah, Tekken 6 was disappointing :-/
gotta pick up Tekken 6 soon...
They should make Tekken PlayStation exclusive like it always was and take the game to the next level. Sales on the 360 version wasn't that high anyway.
1. Bring back story arcade mode 2. No more juggling 3. No online lag 4. Better graphics 5. Interactive stages That is what I want to see in Tekken.
OK Tekken 7 needs these two features for me to buy it. Character creation(with no custom move-sets) Offline ranking(to properly prepare to go online) Everything else I don't care. If this is a repeat of Tekken 6 again I will just ignore it.
