At EVO 2014, there was a lot of announcements with Mortal Kombat X and Super Smash Bros., now another one has been revealed. Namco Bandai has released a teaser trailer toTekken 7. Tekken 7 will be released for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 running on the Unreal Engine 4.
Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada said: “The power and flexibility means that we can focus our efforts on making Tekken 7 the best possible game without worrying about spending time creating a stand-alone graphic engine. With Unreal Engine 4, we could rapidly achieve visual quality expected on next-gen platform and go beyond it. Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to immediately bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.”
Katsuhiro Harada has promised that more information about Tekken 7 will be revealed at San Diego Comic-Con in July 25th.
I think that this is the first time we’ll see a new game running on the Unreal Engine 4, so it will be interesting to see what it looks like. Considering how often the previous engine is used in so many other games, this will let us see what the future is like for gaming. While it doesn’t hold the same weight like Mortal Kombat does, I can’t wait to see what Namco Bandai has in store.
