New Tekken 7 Alternate Costumes/Customizations!

Tekken 7′s Customization will supposedly be ‘deeper’ than before, according to Harada.

At the recent Bandai-Namco business meetings where the Japanese release date for Tekken 7 Arcade was announced, several screenshots of some characters dressed in new, alternate costumes were revealed. The characters featured were Asuka Kazama, Ling Xiaoyu, Leo Kliesen and Sergei Dragunov. Both Asuka and Ling were dressed in skirted numbers, with Ling’s being very similar to an outfit set she had in Tekken 6. Leo sported a dashing ‘Prince’-like outfit complete with a wide-brimmed hat with a feather, making him kinda look like Raphael from Soul Calibur. Finally, Dragunov was in a full-body military stealth suit.

Very nice start- I am hoping that these outfits aren’t simply one-piece outfits but composed of pieces you can mix and match with other sets and customizations. The apparent return of some stuff last seen in T6 is a good sign anyway- Customization was one of the most popular features in previous games, although it was slightly dumbed-down in TTT2. Perhaps Tekken 7 will see the best system yet.

I have to say though that the devs still have a LOT to do on this game’s look. The visuals are still WIP, with lots of effects like shadows and lighting, optimization still not implemented- I am not liking how Asuka looks a bit- er, cartoony- in the above pic- Soul Calibur V’s character faces looked much better than that. But I’m hopeful that the game will bowl us over in the final version.
