Several Bandai Namco-published titles like Guilty Gear Strive and Dragon Ball FighterZ received significant announcements at Evo 2022 but what about Tekken 7? The 3D fighter will receive a free update on August 17th which features balance adjustments and “new tactics.” Further details weren’t provided, so we’ll need to wait for patch notes.
More importantly, the publisher also featured a short tease at the end of its update trailer. It sees Kazuya Mishima dropping his father, Heihachi, off a cliff after defeating him. The scene then shifts to a new render of Kazuya with the words “Get ready.” This may be the first of many teases for the next Tekken game, though whether it will be Tekken 8 or even Tekken Tag Tournament 3 remains to be seen.
Tekken 7 was first released in 2015 for arcades before coming to PS4, PC, and Xbox One on June 2nd 2017. It’s received four Season Passes till now with 15 DLC characters and six stages. Stay tuned for further updates in the meantime.
