The Tekken franchise has been one of the most loved and played franchises in the fighting genre. Recently, an announcement was posted on the PlayStation Blog by an employee of Bandai Namco, regarding the worldwide release of Tekken 7 that is set to release on June 2.
The new Tekken is expected to take the franchise to another level, with its outstanding graphics and innovative combat techniques and mechanics that can be mastered. There are a variety of familiar characters to choose from, with each having a different set of skills for the player to learn.
A bunch of new features will be coming along with the game, such as the Rage System. Once your life bar starts getting lower it will begin flashing red, an indicator that the character has entered “Rage” mode. While in this mode, players get to deal more damage. A couple of skills are also unlocked while in this mode: the Rage Art and Rage Drive, both of which come in handy when in trouble, as they can help and turn the fight around with the right momentum.
Street Fighter’s Akuma is also joining the battle, as previously announced. This character has a unique Shoto-style move set which he can use in order to utilize his EX Meter. The EX Meter allows him to pull off some impressive combos and super moves.
Besides all of this, some exclusive content had to be added in as well. Tekken 7 will feature exclusive content such as the Jukebox mode that allows players to make a playlist of their favorite songs from the Tekken franchise. Also, plenty of costumes from the previous titles will be included in the exclusive content, which is always good. For more info, click here.
