What news? What Announcement!?? AARRGGHHH!!!
I always tell myself, my love for Tekken has somewhat waned as of late. I am not really thinking about Tekken 7, that unreachable game that is probably years away from my hands. I am into other stuff these days. THEN this stuff comes along, and I am all excited again. DAMMIT.
Apparently, according to Twitter (care of tireless Tekken Tweeter Wonkey and the Tekken Project), there will be a couple of dates to look forward to regarding Tekken 7. Wonkey tweeted over the weekend that there will be a big announcement for the game this coming July 1. THEN, just today, the Tekken Project has posted that a Big, Serious announcement regarding Tekken 7 will be revealed this coming July 7 (7-7, get it?).
Now, Wonkey has updated that the upcoming July 7 event might be unrelated to the July 1 news, but he is not certain. I’m thinking they’re two different things. But what could they be?
Character Reveal? Maybe this could be something done on July 1. Not as ‘Big’ as what’s coming on the 7th, conceivably, but something very exciting for many Tekken fans who just aren’t excited with the current roster.
Console Announcement? THIS is what I am hoping for, but not yet perhaps- it’s almost certain that T7 is coming to PS4 and XB1 anyways, so we’re already ready whatever.
New Version. Just as Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion became the definitive T6, and would eventually become the console game, maybe we’ll see a Tekken 7 BR on the 7th. It’s been tested and tweaked in terms of gameplay, and hopefully will see a TON of new content- all the stuff so far missing on the Vanilla Tekken 7- new character intros and win animations, tons more customizations and costumes, modes of play, etc- basically ALL the stuff promised by Harada that we have yet to see.
Or… something about Tekken X Streetfighter?
Aside from the things mentioned above, I can’t think of anything else that can be announced that is big. Anything involving tourneys or live events is worthless in any case. But we’ll see. Darn, it’s still over a week till the 7th, but we’ve got this coming Wednesday, if our friend Wonkey got his news right. Till then, stay tuned…
