Whoops! Tekken 7 announce leaks ahead of Evo 2014 reveal

Sunday, 13th July 2014 23:20 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Tekken publisher Nacmo Bandai will be making an announcement at EVO 2014 today, and leaks suggest it is indeed Tekken 7.


UPDATE: Tekken 7 has been officially confirmed.

Tekken 7 was revealed via an IGN video featuring producer Katsuhiro Harada, apparently; AOL published the video earlier today, although IGN itself had not.

This was presumably an embargo-busting error as it has since been taken down, but both EventHubs and Gematsu saw it, and we have no reason to disbelieve either reliable source.

According to reports, the video confirmed Tekken 7 is being built on Unreal Engine 4 and will come to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

“With Unreal Engine 4, we can rapidly achieve visual quality expected on next-gen platforms and go beyond it,” Harada apparently said.

“Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it also allows us to bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.”

We expect to have more details later today when Tekken 7 is officially announced.

    It’s Tekken. It’s from Namco. There’s no reason for a PC version.

    If it’s Unreal 4, I imagine just PS4 and XB1.

    @Clupula yeah, I’m hoping we hear something about PS4 and Xbox One soon. I hope Namco isn’t waiting for both consoles to take off in Japan; the fighting scene is so strong in the west.

    epic said that unreal 4 doesn’t support PS3 and Xbox 360 out of the box but that there is nothing that prevents developers from adding support for last gen consoles.

    Found this, not sure if it’s outdated or what, but it states that UE4 won’t support X360/PS3. Anyone know if it’s inaccurate?
