It has been well over nine years since Namco had released Tekken 6 for multiple game consoles including the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PlayStation Portable. Out of the three game consoles Tekken 6 has sold the most on the PlayStation 3 reaching over two million units worldwide while the Xbox 360 hit over one million. As of right no Tekken 7 looks like its going to be a very promising fighting game especially considering the fact that Bandai Namco Entertainment are utilizing the Unreal Engine 4. Along with having an optimal game engine Tekken 7 is said to be the final chapter in the game’s series. The fact that the Tekken series is coming to an end would definitely be a huge factor that would contribute to Tekken 7 having high sales once its released in June 2017. Along with having new game mechanics such as “Rage Art” and the “Power Crush” system Tekken 7 includes Akuma from the Street Fighter series as a playable character in the game.
The good thing about Tekken 7 is that it features many returning characters from Tekken 6 including Alisa Bosconovitch, Lars Alexanderson, Jin Kazama, Kazuya Mishima, Heihachi Mishima, Nina Williams and more. The Tekken series is nothing short of legendary in the realm of gaming within the fighting genre. Since Tekken 7 is supposed to be the final chapter to the Iron Fist Tournament many people were fans of the series since the early 90’s would probably be astonished and at the same time bummed by the fact that the series is coming to an end. While Tekken 7 is game that would look appealing to modern day gamers the fact that its probably the final game in the series would definitely be enough for old school gamers to reach down into their wallets to purchase it.
