Bandai Namco's annual Tekken 7 tournament has been officially announced for North America and will span many events nationwide.
Ha! After reading the headline I thought that was the official name for the console release of the game. I'm was like wtf!
I'm pretty sure it's "Tekken 7: Fated Retribution"
Just give us a release date for the home release, Namco
Seriously. I can't believe they still don't have a date nailed down yet.
From what I understand, they are still adding characters to the arcade version of Tekken 7 Fated Retribution, as many fan faves are still missing from the roster. (Lee, Lei, Eddy, Bob, Anna, Raven, Marduk, Kuma, Zafina, Anna, Wang, Ganryu, Roger, Miguel etc...) Though not all will return, they're working on adding more. Also, they need time for the pros to get to grips with all the characters and allow them to find broken stuff, or find glaring weaknesses in certain characters. With a pool of knowledge, they can tweak and balance the game to make it as balanced as possible, so that every single character is viable for top-level tournament play. (They essentially managed this with Tekken 6, and apparently T7:FR is even MORE well balanced) I say, don't expect it until 2017. Unlike SFV, T7 will release complete, and in the best possible state, and as balanced as possible.
Really my boys lee and Lei not in yet, hope they make it.
If they managed that with T6 I don't think Bob would be appearing as often as he did in top 8s of major tournaments. There would be like 5 Bob players in top 8.
@PurpHerbison Seriously Bob, Lars and Devil Jin need to be toned down a bit.
If it's because they're adding a ton of interesting single-player content, I'm on board for a 2017 release. #BringBackTekkenForceMode #Chicken
Ahh I loved Tekken Force Mode :D While they're at it add in some Tekken Bowl and Tekken Ball!
@PerpHerbison I assume you're talking about a rather infamous MLG tournament where 5 Bobs made the top 8... That tourney in particular made Tekken 6 look bad... Bob was extremely popular in the US. Compare that to Korea and Japan, which is even higher level, and Bob actually wasn't used all that much. Even characters like Kuma and Asuka who are considered low tier in T6 have done well in high level tourneys. There are tiers, yes, and Bob is top tier, (mostly thanks to d+1 and u/f+1+2 being extremely versatile and safe moves) but if anything he was used often because he is extremely easy to use execution-wise. Same with Jack. They are strong but they aren't unbeatable even with lower tiered characters. Kuma, Zafina and Yoshimitsu are undisputed bottom tier in T6 but still high level players have repped them. E.g. Hankuma, Tare, Oni. In fact Hankuma won a Tekken Crash Royal Rumble with Kuma against some of the best players in the world, beating Rain's Miguel in the final.
Namco are damn assholes for this constant tease ish
How is it gonna use psvr is what i wanna know, its just bizzare!
That's what I'd like to know. Maybe it's some kind of first person mode where enemies come at you, but I don't see how that would work.
I recall reading an interview with the devs saying it wouldnt be a firstperson mode cause that wouldnt work so im stumped.
Maybe a first person Tekken force mode? That would be cool.
Then that makes two of us stumped. I look forward to finding out more about it.
