Today Bandai Namco announced a brand new DLC character coming to its popular fighting game Tekken 7.
Whatever, just waiting on that Virtua Fighter X Esports now. I am so sick of the over the top characters and move sets of all these fighting games. Can't wait to play something where the style and the animations mimic and recreate real world martial arts techniques.
Yeah you and me both... bring us Virtua Fighter X Sega
I'm a huge Tekken fan but I think Tekken 7 has gone overboard. So many of the new characters (especially DLC) feel out of place. Noctis, Negan, Akuma and Geese especially. (Not hating SF or KoF but I don't think they mix well with Tekken) I've never played VF but I would welcome a new game in the series to sink my teeth into. Always liked the look of Goh and his grapple setups.
You won't regret it, it has a simplified control scheme but the depth of moves, and how technical the movement, guarding, setups, and escapes are is just amazing. Many players might use the same combos with the same fighter but you can be successful with any character using completely different styles and methods. It is really amazing coming up against another good player in a mirror match and watch them use the character in a completely different way. It also is a game without an etched in stone tier list. It is truly the only fighter I can think of where you can pick the character that appeals to you via style and aesthetics and not worry about how uneven their matchups will be against other characters. My wife and I still play it on xbox one bc when we stay in drinking. She will take a drink for every fight she loses and I will take 3 for every round I lose lmao, good times.
I don't think those characters are out of place in a series where you have devils, bears, kangaroos and a boxing velociraptor.
@generic-user-name I meant out of place in terms of playstyle and capabilities. Noctis, for example, having a safe, full screen whiff punish, is completely unlike anything Tekken has ever had. Same goes for Geese/Akuma and their fireballs / super moves.
However, just 3 characters in Season 4..wonder if they still want 30 bucks lol.
I think its 2 characters
Still got my fingers cross that Mokujin aka 'the carousel' makes a triumphant return. Gateway MT6706 2008
I'm a huge Tekken fan but I feel like they became very greedy... Ok they promised those base characters but cmon for me it doesn't feel right how the game is being managed,
Harada selective memory strikes again. His dementia is getting worse.
Are they going to upgrade Tekken 7 to 4k resolution for both next gen consoles?
