Tekken folks talk the talk.
We are about two months away from one of the most long-awaited, anticipated game releases of all time- Tekken 7. MAN, Tekken fans and fighting gamers have been waiting for more than seven years for this latest KOIFT game. Not since Tekken Tag 2′s release on PS3/Xbox360 in 2010 have we had a Tekken come home. Well, from all indications, Tekken 7 looks to be worth the wait. It seems to be filled to the brim with content out of the box, with even more stuff coming in post-launch (we hear, and we hope). Additional fighters, more items, costumes and customizations, game modes and stages… and of course, the conclusion of the Mishima Saga which supposedly will end with either the death of Heihachi or Kazuya. Which will prove canon? Maybe we’ll find out in another six or seven years… ARGH. Will I be still playing games then? MY GOD, YES… I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO DO HAHAHAHA.
Kidding aside, hell- who can think about the next decade when the next couple of months will surely be a blaze of hype for Tekken 7? Namco-Bandai seems to be pulling out a lot of stops to make certain Tekken 7 sells, and with the positivity so far, I see that bearing fruit instead of the noisy but sadly overly-complex and rather lackluster Tekken Tag 2. THIS time though, it’s different- this is a canon Tekken, and fans will be behind this all the way. At least, I am. I plan to keep on this like a hawk for the next several weeks. Just a wee bit more waiting, everybody. I’m gonna have my bloody, grimy fingers on this in due time.
Oh right; I bought this game on PC. Deluxe version, preordered so I get Eliza day one. Expecting new character reveals in the next two months leading to release. Man, it’s a great time to be a Tekken fan.
