Tekken 7 Finally Gets a Release Date; Collector’s Edition Detailed
Start your Monday by watching a kid get kicked in the chest. Namco Bandai finally announced the June 2nd release date for Tekken 7 on Xbox One, PC, and Playstation 4.
Tekken 7 has been released in Japanese arcade since 2015 and Tekken fans have been waiting eagerly for home retail release.
The epic trailer continues drama with all your favorites like Nina, Jin, and the worst dad ever, Heihachi. We learn a bit more about Kazuya’s neverending quest to destroy his father. Towards the end of the trailer, we do get a glimpse of actual combat running on the in-game engine.
The biggest difference from the Arcade version is the inclusions of a story mode, online tournament mode, additional fighters, and much-needed character balancing.
Namco also detailed what you should expect from the Season Pass and Collectors Edition. The Tekken 7 Collector’s Edition includes
- 12” tall by 18” wide that features a dynamic pose with Kazuya fly kicking Heihachi in mid-air
- Special Steel Book
- The official soundtrack
The Season Pass will give players access to three content packs which can be purchased separately. Here’s everything that’ll come inside the Season Pass:
- New playable characters
- New stages
- New game mode
- Costume packs
- Bonus 35-piece Metallic Costume Pack
