Tekken 7

E3 is rapidly approaching, you know what that means, right? The drought begins. While the early summer is usually a wasteland for new releases, this June isn’t off to a terrible start. The beginning of June sees the return of fighting game royalty. The latest entry in Bandai Namco’s long-running Tekken series, Tekken 7 releases this week. Time to get hype.

Tekken 7 – PS4, Xbox One, PC – June 2

The 7th King of the Iron Fist Tournament has begun and more than control of the Mishima Zaibatsu corporation is for grabs. The latest installment of Tekken promises to end the long standing Mishima Clan blood saga. Tekken 7 sees the integration of a smooth story experience with over-the-top cinematics blending seamlessly into intense 1-on-1 fights. The members of the Mishima Clan will fight to settle old scores and for control of the Mishima Zaibatsu corporation, of course. This time personal grudges are on the line and the balance of the world.

It isn’t just a cinematic story that’s new to Tekken 7; there is a bevy of new gameplay mechanics introduced to make Tekken 7 feel fresh even to series veterans. The rage series of techniques change how you play. Rage System, while not completely new, is a way to deal more damage and open up new moves to your arsenal. It goes into effect as you take on damage. The life bar will flash red letting you know you can utilize the Rage Art and Rage Drive.

Rage Art is a powerful armored finishing move that when activated at the right time can reverse the flow of battle. The move does damage proportionate to the level of your health, and if your opponent is low enough it can be a fatal blow. However, use it too early and you might miss your opportunity to win. It is an easy comeback technique for the game.

Rage Drive is a less risky, but less powerful Rage System move that unleashes a useful combo to punish an opponent. It gives you room to breathe, but won’t end a match.

Then there is the Power Crush, which is another armored attack that can power through most attacks. It is a move meant to shift momentum in a match. Power Crush lets you use a move even when taking damage. Timing is everything with Power Crush though. If not timed properly it can be extremely risky and leave you exposed.

Tekken 7 features an expansive roster of over thirty fighters including series mainstays and all-new fighters. Each fighter has their own set of techniques, moves, and combos. New fighters include Claudio, Gigas, Josie, Katarina, Kazumi, Lucky, Raven, and Shaheen. Whether re-discovering old favorites or trying out new fighters, Tekken 7 has plenty of fighting styles to master.

In addition to other new fighters, Akuma from the Street Fighter series shows up in Tekken 7. He retains all his moves from his home series albeit faithfully recreated in the game’s full 3D battle system. However, he isn’t just a guest character for the sake of being a guest character. Akuma plays a vital role in Tekken 7’s story. He entered a deal with Kazumi, Heihachi’s wife, to rid the world of both him and her son, Kazuya. Akuma’s mission means this truly will be the end of the Mishima family blood fued.
